In Porpentine’s slimy world, there is only one thing to life – to please an alien empress. Those who defy her regime are hunted down, while members of her court literally turn their blood and tears into artifacts for their queen. And no one asks a single question: why? “With Those We Love Alive” is a text game which stays with you a little longer. Not only thanks to the way it diagnoses contemporary society, but also physically – it requires players to forge an intimate relationship with the game by drawing over their bodies in specific moments.
