This feels weird. I actually played a game yahtzee reviewed before he reviewed it and not a well known game at that.

But yeah, it was pretty good. It feels like a worthy spin-off of the Blackwell Series, and is set in the same unierse(presumably after that game).

Also, apparently the game started life as a Dresden files adaptation and when that fell through they just went ahead and continued without being set in that universe, thus why it feels like a Dresden Files adaptation.

I'd have said Constantine for trenchcoat guy, but then I've never read a Dresden Files book.

Loved one of Wadjet Eye's earlier games; Primordia, also a point-and-clicker with well-written characters, interesting universe in which you are immersed cleverly through visuals and narrative tidbits sprinkled here and there without feeling overwhelming. Seems like I need to give this one a looksie as well!

I remember being subjected to the same "That doesn't work.".

Anyone else thing the ghost starts to resemble Venom once it gets teeth?

At first, I thought that trench coat guy was saying "I solemnly swear I am up to no good."

Up until it grew a second tongue. And they were both dildos.

Huh, I think I?ll check it out. Hopefully, it will distract me from the nightmares I?ll have after those credits illustrations...

Yahtzee, you wanker, you better have fucking played Riven. It's on Steam too, so there's no excuse.

Also OneShot.

Had a delightful laugh at the "It was made for me" joke with the dog.

If you haven't read "The Enigma of Aragami Fault", it's over here [https://imgur.com/gallery/ZNSaq]. Your mileage may vary, but I found it to be by far the creepiest thing I've read in a while, so steer clear if you have an aversion to horror.

(I suppose Yahtzee could have come up with "It was made for me" without having read that, but it seems like a little too much of a coincidence.)

Nice. On your quest for things to review that aren't sandboxes, maybe give Battle Chef Brigade a go? Mostly because I liked it and I think the comments you'd make about it will tickle me, but also because you might like it too, who knows.

All of their games are pretty good, including this one. If you like this, check out the Blackwell games. None of them are super long but when you consider them as a full series you get something like 10-15 hours of gameplay. I think you can get the entire series fairly reasonably as well.

Hearing Yahtzee talk about this brings back memories of playing 5 Days a Stranger. Honestly, even after all this time, I wouldn't say no to an "8 Days a _____" game.

Adventure Game Studio? People are still using that? The reason I joined the Escapist in 2010 was because some British bloke that made horror games using that had just started doing games reviews speaking very quickly hosted there.

I thought you were exiled from the AGS community because you Phil Fish'd, Yahtzee! Was that episode (I don't recall if it was the second half of Rob Blanc 1+2 or Rob Blanc 3) of The Ego Review a lie?

I think I am hungry, cause those images of pretzels at the end really made me want to eat my screen.
