This is an impressionistic game that began with on-site documentary research on a small town in Peru, called Cachiche, that was founded by witches during the Peruvian Inquisition. The player takes photos and shows them to local characters, who weave stories about them.

The main game mechanic is that of photographing characters, environmental objects and events in this town, then showing them to characters who give both literal and stream-of-consciousness abstract descriptions of the photos based on what they see in them. This creates a generative narrative for the player, allowing them to cognitively build an exquisite-corpse style story about the town, with multiple truths exposed by different characters. In a way, it is a conversation mechanic: the player asks "questions" through their choice of photography, and the characters answer through their descriptions, which often point the player in new directions.
