Winter Voices demo released

Word has it that Beyond the pillars, a Parisian indie outfit, have released a public demo of their turn-based strategy RPG Winter Voices.

Quintin Smith of Rock Paper Shotgun describes the game like so:

Winter Voices is an episodic RPG about a girl trying to overcome the death of her father. It’s set in a small snowbound village where everybody knows everybody, to the point that it feels deeply claustrophobic. The game’s turn based battles – of which there are many – see your character doing battle with spirits representing everything from guilt to a crushing fear of your own mortality. Instead of dying, your character has a breakdown and flees the scene.

The game will have 7 episodes in total, and according to the devs, they are not standalone episodes: they must be played in order. Here is some gameplay footage showing a battle:
