I've played this game once.
Same thing happened to me except 1 character succumbed to their wounds causing 2 other characters to reach misery 4 thus ending my game.
That was a harsh ending.
Haven't touched it since.
Not that I don't want to... it's just that it was actually jarring and you're like, "Well, that's it I guess."
Which is kind of the point it's trying to get across. So I would say the game is a success.
Question is whether it's a game or its an experience
