Blood and Gore, Strong Language, Violence
This is an adventure game in which players assume the role of a girl fleeing hardship and struggle in 14th-century France. From a third-person perspective, players avoid swarms of rats and use stealth tactics to sneak around soldiers. One method of deterring rats is to lure them to corpses or soldiers, who are shown screaming as they are bitten/eaten. Cutscenes depict characters being impaled by swords, struck by arrows or maces, and stabbed by spears. Some game environments contain corpses that have been impaled, burned, or partially-eaten/mutilated (sometimes with entrails visible). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
