Red Pool is challenging.
Red Pool is about timing, reasoning, and perseverance.
Red Pool demands your utmost attention.
And so does its story.
Yes, but what is Red Pool?
Red Pool is essentially an arcade game, with an interactive fiction heart, and a thriller narrative.
There's a very high chance that you've never played anything like it.
This game features multiple endings unlocked through a sequential discovery mechanism.
To preserve the layered meaning of the narrated events, it is advised to complete Red Pool in a single continuous session.
Quitting the game will reset your progress.
Remember: before it's all said and done, you can always have another try.

The potentially frustrating (and overwhelming) feeling you get when evaluating if going for "another try" is meant to mirror what's happening inside the mind of the character you play as.
I think that establishing an emotional connection (albeit of an unconscious kind) with the player is crucial to give this story a meaning that goes beyond passive narrative.
