Literally in love

I love this show so much, it makes me feel like I’m actually Arthur in a way. It’s so beautiful!!

AJLFX ,

Exceptionally well produced & performed

I was looking for a dark production to scratch that itch, which wasn’t cheesy, something smart, without cheap scares written for kids.

This show delivers in spades, with a solid, original conceit, and a really fantastic vocal performance.
If LitRPG is a thing, this might best be described as a PodRPG? It succeeds far better than that.

The sound design fades in and out when it needs to be more expansive, and shrinks when it needs to feel more intimate. It has its moments of truly terrifying suspense, the supernatural, dread, and an adroitly handled sense of cosmic dread, which few get so right.

If you’re looking for your Eldritch horrors, your Lovecraftian tales, then this is what you’ve been looking for.

Just push “play.”
