Leaving Home for Adventure in 'Dacey in the Dark - Prelude'

We've been feeling homesick, with nothing but these games to soothe our longing. Our picks this week will leave you yearning for a mom-cooked meal, or joyously reliving the day you left the nest.

'Dacey in the Dark - Prelude' is a short, melancholy adventure game for PC about growing up and leaving home, with a few fantastical elements thrown into the mix. A dark, purple-hued atmosphere colors the game world, giving it an otherworldly quality that meshes well with its (perhaps overtly) melodramatic premise. While the keyboard-driven UI takes a little while to get used to, the sadly abrupt ending leaves you wishing the story continued.
