"My name is Luzia...and this story isn't about me, it’s about my sister. Do you still wish to hear it?"

My Big Sister is an RPG-like horror adventure game about two sisters: Luzia, a sarcastic twelve year old, and Sombria, her older sister.


Tropes:

  • Brick Joke: Over the course of the game, there's multiple sinks to inspect. All of them are useless except for the one in Chapter 10, where it has a loose pipe in it.
  • Cigarette of Anxiety: Sombria has a smoking break at one of her hospital visits to Luzia.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Uncle Bob's screwdriver, which is mentioned to be in a drawer in the second chapter, is used in the eleventh chapter to screw off the hinges of the basement drawer.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Luzia is a young girl full of sarcastic one-liners.
    Luzia: Huh, it's a sink. That's pretty neat. If anyone is listening to me right now, I'm using sarcasm!
  • Driven to Suicide: If you immediately use the bobby pin to unlock Sombria's door in chapter 11, you'll discover that this is Sombria's fate.
  • Foreshadowing:

    • Luzia in the beginning keeps having a dream where Sombria is a ghost. Later Sombria becomes an undead yokai.
    • On the train ride, there's a scene of Luzia in a coma flat lining while Sombria takes a cigarette break. This scene is relevant for two of the endings.
  • "Groundhog Day" Loop: A possible explanation of the curse is that Sombria created a loop due to her depression over her sister's death.
