Mozart's Name Day - Halloween stories for music lovers
First Name Day: Don Giovanni
Can horror stories be more than just entertainment?
Of course they can, therefore, inspired by the fact that I'm born on the 31st October and I am a Mozart fan, whose name day is celebrated on the very same date, I wrote this story.
It's not just text: images and, above all, music are part of the experience.
But it's not a visual novel, there are no choices to make and no alternate endings: the only required action is touching the screen anywhere to proceed forward.
This the first story of a planned series of stand-alone short novels, which I will publish in the near future (always free of charge) if this one will be appreciated.
So now it's up to you: tell me what you think, give me suggestions, correct my English where needed (I'm from Italy).
Mozart made my life richer, may be it will be the same for you if you don't know his music yet.
This story is dedicated to the crew of "Tenebre" (http://www.facebook.com/tenebremagazine), an Italian horror magazine, whose passion inspired me and gave me the final push to write it (but if you will not like it, it's not their fault; obviously, this is also true with reference to used open-source software, free online resources, creative commons images and sounds, all credited at the end: any flaw is attributable solely to me).
The second name day, if it will ever be published, will be titled "Organ piece for a mechanical clock" ("Orgelstück für eine uhr" as Mozart himself wrote on his own catalogue - UPDATE: the Second Name Day is now available, check out the "More from developer" section on this page).
