Fran Bow is a point-and-click videogame that takes references to supernatural beings.
The main developer, Natalia Figueroa, used as inspiration her personal experiences from when she was mentally ill.
I'm specially interested in Itward, the imaginary friend who looks like a skelleton, who was Natalia's friend as a child.
I remember once in /x/ somebody mentioned entities that approach children to teach them things
Do you know anything else about this game?
Any thoughts on supernatural references of this game?
the best would be just to play it through yourself. It's a game that really pulled at my heartstrings as i've lost both of my parents as well which caused a row of mental breakdowns.
The supernatural aspect is relative in this game.
To every imaginary creature or land theres a real life counterpart.
My friend who is not mentally ill had a completely different view about the ending than i did, kinda reminds me of the time i watched Shutter Island with him.
He was sure that DiCaprios character was mentally ill while I kept doubting it. It is what the movie wants you to believe to justify the happenings/killings.
I think everyone else on Shutter Island was the crazy one
The Kamalas are the physical shell thats left after death (bones, blood) while the Valokas are kinda see-through ghost like fairies (soul)
Now this reminds me a lot of Norse or Baltic folklore.
Some Pagan cults hold the belief that everything that grows and changes lives and has a soul (which would fit to the Kingdom of Ithersta)
Palontras kinda resembles a dragon which in the Chinese folklore hold power over flowing water.
