Although very light on player interaction, this childhood reminiscence of a 93-year-old Belgian woman provides a sobering snapshot of life under German occupation in WWII.

This narrative exploration game may be light on gameplay but should be just the ticket for movie lovers looking to revel in a mystery hearkening back to the Golden Age of Hollywood.
