Aww... We already have a Star Wars theme. Anything else she may have in mind?

If not I'll post it, no worries, but see if you can upload a larger picture. That one is too small and you can't see Vader clearly wink

I've been excited about this since the first announcement I saw on July 9, 2010 after I played Scratches in 2006, which still remains my favorite adventure game since Phantasmagoria (1995)- That's my own personal sob story, btw. =)
And while the terms "mainstream audience" and "game" appearing in the same context fills me with some apprehension, I didn't see "console platform" thrown into the mix - so I'm still enthusiastic for it's release (understatement).

oh and even later to the point: submitted

Woo-hoo! The top twenty is extremely hard to crack. That puts Asylum in great shape for possible greenlighting on the next go-round, right?

Very interested on this one... glad I have time to check out Scratches before this one! Great to see so many languages.... but, no love for the Portuguese language? frown I wonder what are the reasons not to include it...
