The King in Yellow Borders

By WiL - v1.6 Stable Release - September 8th, 2020

Genre:
  Adventure/Horror

About: 
"The King in Yellow" is a collection of short stories by Robert Chambers, published in 1895.  Many of the names, scenes, and themes in this game are drawn from the first story, "The Repairer of Reputations", as well as characters and events from throughout the collection.  The unreliability of the narrator, especially as his side of the story cracks and slips further from 'reality', plays a central role, and I wanted the same to be true here. Gutenberg link to the original work is in the credits below.  Thank you for playing. I love you.
