the Ballad of Sorrows

The Terror Veldt

Inspired by the popular short story “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury, Austin imagined a world where nightmares come to life.

What do you do when you cant trust your mind?

Insomnia can mess with your mind, make it difficult to function, and disturbs normal life. What if that wasn’t the only thing wrong with you? Morgan doesn’t just live her daily life with insomnia, she suffers from night terrors. When violent and disturbing killings begin to happen in her small collage town, she will find herself trapped between dream and reality, completely incapable of telling the difference.

“..spent my whole life chasing after dreams, but every dream turns out to be, just a part of my nightmare…”
