Well....

If you are wondering whether your child should play this it depends on how mature he is. The game does explore sexuality and it does cuss but it's not an "inappropriate game" or anything. It combines puzzles and lateral thinking towards obstacles. I guess it is sort of a detective game if you will. Some parts might be inappropriate for young children however I believe the good strongly out ways the bad in this argument. I'd rather have my children play this then Grand Theft Auto anyway....

If you are conservative or want to refrain from converstaions about sexualtiy than this game is not for you

The story contains mature themes including a teen girl exploring her sexuality and feelings for another teen girl in a non graphic way. It also contains songs which contain strong language which makes it M. How the story is told is interesting and the game can completed under 2 hours. The game may seem at first like its a horror game because how dark the house is, but its not. The gameplay is fairly straight forward, walk around picking up stuff to figure out the story. The game is all about telling a story.
