Description (in English): 

Deviant: The Possession of Christian Shaw is an animated interactive graphic based on the historical story of Christian Shaw and her demonic possession. Set in 1696 amongst the witch trials, this project explores new ways of experiencing a story — harnessing the allure of mystery and uneasy tensions and plucking the participant's sense of social responsibility.

It’s a visual game and almost non-textual. You play by clicking on the active areas. It’s not always easy to see the areas so you need to click around and just try for a while. There are sounds when you click on different areas. The game takes place in something looking like a small town, and smaller images pops up when you click on items.

Technical notes: 

To hear the sound, turn on the computer's speakers or plug in headphones. Move the mouse over and click active areas to interact with the environment.
