Off-Site Reviews

[...] David Whyld has created an impressive story of pulp adventure that feels straight out of Lovecraft's time. That's the good news. The bad news is that you the player have no role whatsoever in said story, which is conveyed to you via a series of extended infodumps.

[...] a fast-paced, grotesque story about what you find in the basement, drawn from Lovecraft's line, "A man's body dies, but corpse retains life...".
