"The ouroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e. of the shadow." - Carl Jung

The Grief of Quetzalcoatl is a metaphorical game where players have to guide the main characters through a series of memories to confront the haunting "Ghosts of the Past".

Players have to Absorb the ghosts to overcome them, however, absorbing Ghosts damages the player but also raises their maximum health in the long run, in reference to the rather ambivalent nature of facing up to one's inner Ghosts.

Coupled with a reinterpretation of the Quetzalcoatl legend, the game spurs players to ponder deeper about the game's metaphorical meaning through its mechanics and its meaning.
