Curtain is a lo-fi narrative about destructive relationships. Experience having your world filtered through another character's overhanging narration. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to finish, the game will exit itself.

(tw: non-explicit themes of abuse)

A selection of very nice things people have said!

"Curtain is less a cautionary tale and more a cathartic exploration of a terrible, complex situation. It's real-life horror, with a "monster" that's infinitely more complicated and human than anything in fiction". - Danielle Riendeau, Polygon

"You know this is going to happen from the start... The trash of adolescence is all around and your relationship is just as grim". - Chris Priestman, KillScreen
