Yes, I agree, it's a dark game. Luckily, my mother is a psychologist and helped clarify to me what it's all about for my daughter, and why I shouldn't be concerned.

Also her art style is already changing again and the next game will be something completely different.

This might be the first time anyone has ever said “Luckily my mother is a psychologist...”

Some of the best game developers have really dark minds. Look at the artwork fro the original Warcraft or the Doom guys.

Ah, good ol' Chris Metzen. Got bullied as a teenager. Made tons of artwork for Warcraft, Diablo, and other Blizzard franchises. Now he got a burn-out. [1]

Or one of my personal favourites: The Binding of Isaac

I’m curious. What is it all about for them?

We recently moved from the South of France to San Francisco, leaving a lot of friends (and paradise) behind.

Then this game is a great outlet for frustration and disappointment...
