Agustin Cordes, the Argentinian gentleman responsible for Scratches and the kickstarted horrors of the forthcoming Asylum, has assembled an adventure gaming all-star team and created something comfortably gruesome and kindly freeware: Serena. A wonderfully atmospheric, node-based adventure game.

Sporting the talents of Jan Kavan of CBE Software, Sierra's Josh Mandel, indie adventurer Ben Chandler, Scott Murphy of Space Quest fame and many more genre stalwarts, Serena is a short, dark and emphatic testament to what close-knit communities can achieve. It will satisfyingly disturb you in less than an hour.

Apparently, Serena is also a showcase of what the Dagon engine can do on Windows, Mac and Linux and one of the few actually touching horror games I have ever played.
