Nestlings is a short experiment in story and mood. In it you explore a dark house finding notes.
Similar to Candles in a lot of ways, but less of a traditional game; Nestling is short, atmospheric, and is really all about reading notes and the atmosphere. It has gotten a bunch of good press but I did not really get the appeal quite so much, which may be do to my horrible understanding of cursive. But it is a good game and more then worth the ten minutes it takes to play through.
