popcorneater -- you hated the Nancy Drew game The Haunted Carousel?
So you keep saving your game, because experienced adventure gamers KNOW they can get killed off any second; and they're ready to load that saved game - right? But nothing happens to you! The game moves forward, and the sounds get scarier; and nothing happens to you.
Finally, your in the 'endgame' sequence -- staring right into the "Darkness" itself... and what pops up? A lovely, multi-colored and NON-scary puzzle. You make a mistake... and nothing bad happens to you. You just try again. Then another pretty puzzle to solve... and nothing happens. You're at the end, and thousands of lost souls are crying out to you for help. You feel the pressure on you, to NOT MESS UP. But you DO mess up. Do you get EATEN? NO! Do you die? NO! Do you get (at least) yelled at by the scary "Darkness"? No!!!
It just stares at you from its fountain of souls, and waits patiently for you to get those lyrics right. You don't die, because you CAN'T die. And you realize you've been CONNED.
BTW, this is for the AMERICAN release.
