  1. A Life in Hell comic I recall quite often has his son coming up with titles for horror/monster movies, my favorite being Why Was I Dead?

  2. I love how everyone seems to suspect the guy in the trench coat.

  3. Was a little bit disappointed by this game, mainly because I found the mechanics and potential for great story telling really exciting.

    The story wasn’t bad, but with some more effort put into it the game could have been something special.

    The characters was the highlight for me, they each had distinct personalities and their dialogue felt consistent through out the game.

    Would love to see this concept taken further 🙂

    • Yeah I know what you mean. I was kinda hoping they would utilize the possession mechanic in more interesting ways like possessing inanimate objects, your dead body, or maybe even the guy in the bathroom.
