Aside from the school-aged protagonists, I wasn’t quite sure if the newly-released game Blackwood Crossing would fulfill the qualifications for Little Fears inspiration—but not long after I wondered that, the trailer showed its potential.
I haven’t played the game yet but I fully intend to. Here’s the description from the official YouTube channel:
Blackwood Crossing is a story-driven first-person adventure game. An intriguing and emotive tale exploring the relationship between orphaned siblings, Scarlett and Finn. When their paths cross with a mysterious figure, an ordinary train ride evolves into a magical story of life, love and loss.
SPOILERS: There are animal-masked people who turn into leaf clouds? Or something? And the game has papercraft butterflies that come to life? I am so in.
