Bitteroot is an atmospheric Game Boy horror game which sees you searching for help after breaking down near a cursed mansion.
In Bitteroot you follow the story of a young woman who has a little car trouble and goes in search for help in a nearby mansion. However, the inhabitants of the mansion are a little weird (and possibly a little dead) and quite a few are openly hostile. Oddly enough a woman in one of the paintings looks a lot like you and the more you investigate the stranger things get…
Taking around 15 minutes to play through, it’s a great little horror game with a tense atmosphere and some interesting twists. The spritework is particularly impressive, with large well defined sprites and detailed backgrounds that really push the limits of what’s possible on the three decade old Nintendo handheld. See if you can get to the root of what’s going on in Bitteroot.
