From the sound of it, this game has no combat, so... I'm finding it hard to see how it could be scary. Unless it's something like that Grudge game, or "Darkness", where you got chased by nasty things but could do nothing whatsoever but run or die.

That review was obviously trying to avoid spoilers. Unfortunately it's left me wondering what the heck the game is about. I can't understand the point of it. To get sexually molested by a guy in a park BEFORE going to grandma? wtf?

Yeah, I am also wondering.
But I will not buy this game because this game is not available on PS2 or PS3.

Well, it IS in the PC section.

I don't think the so called "indie" game developers are capable of making a console game. Programming for the PC is easier.

Very nice review. The people who insist on seeing the game as a "*bleep* simulator" are projecting so hard they should be bolted to the wall of the local Cineplex.

After having gone all the way through, I think that the story is actually about only one woman and her life experiences, a woman who has a dual representation that brackets her lifeline in time, as the Girl in White and the Grandmother. Note how the Girl in White gathers together re-unites the various themes and their representatives at the very end... can't be more specific for fear of spoiling it for those who are still playing, but I think you will see what I mean.

Thanks for your interpretation sagesource! I never quite thought about it that way.

By the way, a demo is out with some exclusive content, featuring the girl in white if you're interested.

Just finished playing through 4 of the 6 girls and I tried out the demo with the Girl in White beforehand.
It's an interesting game and I'm really enjoying it.

Lovely review too. You really drew attention to The Path's best bits.

indie = small time developers that don't necessarily get the best promotion and tools but can often times make great games, like World of Goo. Nothing to do with Indians.
