The Graveyard

This was by all means a boring game. I understand the underlying messages the game has but still very uneventful. I could not bring myself to pay the five dollars just to see the old woman die.

Inanimate Alice

First off this is one of the most original pieces of literature I have ever seen. The content is captivating and the plot is intriguing.
