"Loretta is a housewife. Her husband Walter is a writer. Dragged from the glitz and glamor of New York City and thrust into a dilapidated farmhouse in the rural south, both are unsuccessful, struggling with their finances and their relationship. But when Loretta learns of her husband's infidelity and a remarkably lucrative life insurance policy filed in his name, a grisly plan begins to take root. It is up to the player to decide how far she will follow it. Players choose dialogue, interact with objects and decide the depths to which Loretta's depravity spirals while navigating a nightmare of her own creation. The game is split into multiple chapters that jump back and forth in time to provide context and reveal the background of Loretta's degradation. Different story paths lead to various twists, turns, and multiple endings. Will you season your husband's steak with pepper, or with poison? Will you lie to the nosy officer with lemonade, or get rid of him in the backyard?"
