Mad Father

Aya Drevis is a young girl living in an isolated mansion in northern Germany. Since her mother's passing, she's felt lonely living with just her father and his assistant Maria. What's more, having heard the screams from the basement, she knows her father's secret...

Mad Father takes place in northern Germany, where the 11-year-old protagonist Aya Drevis lives with her father Alfred and their maid Maria. Aya is a shy girl who never goes outside. Her mother, Monika Drevis, was incredibly ill, and presumably died of illness before the occurrence of the game. Her father performs secret research in his laboratory in the house's basement, with the assistance of Maria. Aya is aware that Alfred experiments on and kills humans in the basement, as well as the fact that he is involved in an extramarital affair with the younger Maria, a former homeless woman he had taken off the street some years prior.

On the anniversary of Monika's death, the very beginning of the game, Aya awakens at midnight to find herself surrounded by test subjects that escaped from the laboratory. Fleeing back into her room, Aya encounters the mysterious salesman Ogre, who offers her the task of solving puzzles to break into her father's laboratory and uncover his secret. Aya discovers that her father had intended to perform taxidermy on her and convert her into a doll, as he had done to numerous other children, having been enamored with preserving humans after having killed his own mother as a youth. Aya soon discovers that her father killed her mother in fear of her mother taking Aya away to prevent him from performing taxidermy on her.

  • OFF

    In "OFF" you take control of a mysterious person called "The Batter", who is described to be on an important mission. The Batter, and yourself as his controller, are dropped off in zone 0, the first of 4 zones in a perplexing, unknown world about which you slowly find out more and more in the process of the game.

    The player (who is referred to directly) assumes control of the Batter, a man in a baseball uniform on a "sacred mission" to "purify the world". After receiving guidance from a talking cat called The Judge, The Batter begins to make his way through four locations known as Zones, killing malevolent ghost-like creatures called "spectres" in order to "purify" the Zone. Each Zone is under the direct administration of a Zone Guardian, Dedan (Zone 1), Japhet (Zone 2), and Enoch (Zone 3). In order to purify the Zone, the Batter kills the Guardians as he progresses. After the purification of each Zone, scenes of a sick boy named Hugo are shown, who continues to grow weaker as The Batter progresses.

    Throughout The Batter's quest for purification, he interacts with the game's mask-wearing merchant, Zacharie, who provides the Judge and The Batter with cryptic hints. The Batter's only companions throughout the game are three circular entities known as "Add-Ons," each of them named after a Greek letter (Alpha, Omega, Epsilon) who also have character classes that correspond to the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit respectively).
