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.)

the car numberplates were fun too... I'm sure one referred to another indie game creator, will have to go check!!!

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

Yeah Steph, that face was scary - have you noticed the other faces interspersed throughout the game? eek

Ohhh even spookier!!!! Maybe you should all collaborate on a game... whistle Wonder if Matt realised the significance of the spider and the ladder too - I expected to have to do something with the little blighter and am really glad I didn't have to!!

eek No offense to anyone, but who cares about the "significance" of the spider. It caught me so completely unaware that I fell out of my trusty old computer chair. It took two bourbon manhattans to get my heart slowed again. It was a scary moment.

Hi Matt. bravo My son and I spent about 10 hours this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the game. Can't wait for you to produce your next game. thumbsup thumbsup


Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.

Hey Tigger, I added spoilers to your thread title. Would hate for someone to not jump like I did when they looked at those rubbish bins! laugh

I love this game it has so much suspense in it between spiders and birds and walking down dimly lite roads and then to run into a stone creature trying to run back the opposite way from it. Playing in the wee hours in am and the erie sounds coming from different directions. I must say still playing it and really glad I got this game. I tried to get into the green car and the alarm is blaring and lights flashing I jumped bigtime my heart started to pound wonder if creatures hear it, talk about more grey hairs that night. this defintely a winner hope to have more games from Matt and crew. It is nice to see so many good adventure games come out this year. thumbsup

smile This game is, indeed, one of the best Little Games in a long time. Those of you have only played it once, wait until you try it again. The big surprises aren't as big (You'll be ready for that d___ bird), but the clues and the movements change. Those Shadow Tor guys are sneaky.

Hi Nickie wave

No, I didn't notice any others. I'll have to look more carefully on my next play through. I finished on Friday and will probably go back through again soon. Great game, I was sorry to see it end.

Steph smile

You're in for a spooky treat Jean and Sassafras! Housewife, I'm so sorry to hear that yours still hasn't arrived. frown

Steph, I'll bet I missed some - but I counted three. I was really creeped out when I saw the first one... evil
