The site is going through a bit of a slow-down at the moment. And the reason for this, is that I haven’t played much new stuff lately, so I got nothing to write about. Another reason is that I have to do some studying for an upcoming exam. Yes, I took a university course this summer, mostly for fun. Who knew you have to study for it?

Dreams in the Witch House is a point & click/RPG made by the Finnish developer Atom Brain Games. It’s based on the Lovecraft mythos, and in my personal opinion, they absolutely nail the feeling from the stories – which of course has the effect of enteral suffering on me since I now have to wait patiently for the full release.
