A dark, sad, funny, weird 1st person exploration game in which you play as a man obsessed with the meaning behind a painting of two palm trees. More of a story game in that it emphasizes mood and character over gameplay. Contains explicit handling of suicide, so be warned. There is also a shrimp tank with pet shrimp.

Download for windows, mac, or linux and play with the lights off and headphones on.

Takes about ten minutes to play.
