Fran Bow is an indie Point'n Click well known for its dark, mysterious, sad, and gory atmosphere. Playing it could almost be taken as a psychedelic trip.
Fran Bow tells the story of a 10 years old young lady who lives a happy life with her parents, her aunt, and her black cat she calls mister Midnight.
One night, after seeing a mysterious goat like monster out of the window, she witnesses her parent's bodies that have been brutally murdered.
Fran Bow then runs out from her house and faints in the forest, fortunately (unfortunately ?) a bunch of mysterious hooded guys carry her to the Oswald asylum in which she is forced to take a medicine called "Duotine" with strong hallucinatory side effects.
Having been separated from her cat, she decides thanks to her creativity and cleverness, to escape the asylum finding him, and learning the truth.
It's a very creepy game but somewhat beautiful and poetic, its soundtrack fits well, its images are grotesque but charming from my point of view.
Natalia Figueroa the designer of Fran Bow told in an interview that most of the elements of the game have been inspired from her own life, especially when she was a teen suffering from mental illness and received bad treatment from the grown ups that were supposed to take care of her.
Here's the trailer:
