Ophelia is one of the first Itch games I'd ever read, and I loved it then because it was Hamlet-adjacent and I'm an easy sell, but I still love it now because of the ways it speaks to me about embodiment, memory written on the body, unconscious action, what "playing" a "game" might mean—how something like the steps of grief might suggest a sort of mechanic—and because it's Hamlet-adjacent and I'm an easy sell.

But for real, it's always, always worth giving any game of Jared's a look. Ophelia in particular is a very short one-pager that still packs a punch with the grim horror of its simplistic core mechanic. It's great.

OMYGOD. NEW FAVORITE. SIMPLE, EMBODIED, investigates inhabiting and not inhabiting "you". Nice!
