You have amnesia. The rest, you’ll find out as you go.
Trigger warning: Graphic violence and death, Gender dysphoria (precautionary tag for trans players), Anxiety disorder, References to past child abuse(only period typical for mc, less so for spouse).
Any explicit sexual acts will be fully consensual and optional.
NOTE: You, as the player and the character, have no agency over the past. Who you used to be is set in stone (except for sex/gender/name). But if you find out enough about your past and the present, you can change who you are now.
You remember nothing. Your spouse won’t let you leave. Your mind is in a grey box separated from your memories, and the only way out is down. Dig your way into yourself. Better be prepared to get your hands filthy with what you find in there.
You wake up in a cabin in the woods with no memory but the chill of water in your lungs. A person who claims to be your spouse has been taking care of you. The coma has left you barely able to walk. You have to recover your health, and your memory. An extended vacation in the cabin sounds like a peaceful opportunity for recovery. But dangers lurk within your own mind. Are you sure you want to open your eyes?
Seven days in Purgatory is a psychological thriller ripe with philosophical musings and sensuality. Taste, hear, think, feel, love… Run.
I am looking for nonbinary betas to help with the nonbinary mc route. If you’re willing to volunteer, please comment or message me.
Author’s note: I have nothing to say for myself other than that I was agitated and stressed, and wanted to make you all suffer with me as soon as possible.
