Rox1001 ,

This is good.

The chaotic beginning (and end) is also planned out. I hope the actors make more.

I.M. Sirius ,

I'm hooked.

Exceptionally well done...and that's coming from an old school nerd who is hard to please in ways unique to our kind. The voice acting is top notch (and surprisingly nuanced), the audio effects add to the story (rather than distract or annoy), the writing crackles with equal parts humor and horror, and these aspects all work in the service of what's shaping up to be a genuinely creepy plot. I'm hooked and I'm impatiently awaiting the next episode.

Game theory rip off

No need to explain
