Whispering Willows is one of those titles that most people sadly did not pay a lot of attention to when it released on PC, despite solid reviews. That was a shame, because as PY noted in his review, this horror/adventure title was very well done and deserved notice. This makes us happy to see that Whispering Willows will be coming to a broader audience soon.
