I noticed that too Nickie. Did the bird pictures look familiar to anyone? I think they are in Room 2, they reminded me of the pictures in DarkFall 2 that you clicked on at the beginning. It's been a long time since I played it so I can't remember for sure.

Ooh, that could be, Steph! It's been too long for me to remember clearly. Was anyone reminded of one of the Zork games with Ben opening the blind on the door? Or was that just another brain cell exploding? laugh

LOL, that Jonathan Boakes really gets around! He's even in Scratches (well, besides the voice acting that is!)

There's a few surreal connections between both Dark Fall's and Barrow Hill, and even Scratches it seems! How wonderful.

Maybe there's a secret plan to tie all things together, like some complex Da Vinci style codex for adventure games. Perhaps if you arrange the game boxes in a certain fashion you will discover a map to a secret cave, filled with adventure gaming goodies; The Cave of Superior BAAGings.

Should anyone find themselves wandering around Fetch rock in 2004, you'll find the books are printed by the 'Barrow Hill' press (I hope they didn't cut down any of the trees!), and the location is featured on one of the maps in the 1912 setting. Surreal, and spooky!

It's been fun trying to spot the Dark Fall references. This one doesn't have anything to do with Dark Fall, but did anyone notice the face in one of the walls of the ruins. Made me jump the first time I noticed it.

Possibly!

As someone who mails a lot of packages, though, I can tell you that sometimes they arrive in the same town, except they can be days apart. (Still haven't figured out why that happens.)

Hmm, I think the number plates were references to a certain helicopter, made famous in the 1980's by Channel 4.

It is odd that New York seems to be getting the packages late. I know Matts completed all the orders, and is waiting to start again on Monday. I'll pass on the info, Housewife.

I remember, when posting Dark Fall, in the same manner, that cross-Atlantic post was incredibly unpredictable. Some New York packages took less than 4 days(!!), but others took over two weeks. I think it must depend entirely on the customs staff, and procedure, from day to day.

Hmmm, what made me think was the amount of cobwebs, the yukky spider on the ladder and MBC which I related to Michael B Clark of Arachnid entertainment!!! remember when the spider on the glass gave you a ladder to go down in The Arrangement??

Think I have been playing too many games!!! rotfl
