Stone of Graves - Uncanny Valley

I thought it would be different

That I could run away from my problems

How could I be so wrong?

You're a security guard, just hired at some kind of facility in the middle of nowhere. Alone, at night, far away from civilization...nothing creepy could possibly happen, right?

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we begin Uncanny Valley!

An Early Grave - Oxenfree

Everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio

A group of teenagers are going camping on a local island. It's an annual tradition, so no one expects the strange events that unfold...

Join us at 3pm ET as we begin Oxenfree!

Thursday Thanatopsis - Sunless Sea

23rd May, 1898
Screams – dark water – the unforgettable sound of a ship's spine breaking.

Sailing the underground seas surrounding Fallen London yields terrors unknown...much the same as it does on land, actually. Failbetter Games' Victorian Gothic setting is simultaneously dark and vibrant, dead but still breathing. A wonderful fit for the holiday, I think.

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we begin Sunless Sea!

Stone of Graves - Okage, Shadow King

Do you ever wonder what your shadow is thinking?

When Ari finds his sister afflicted with a curse, his only hope of saving her is making a pact with a demon. In exchange, the demon, an ancient lord dispossessed of his power, demands his aid in restoring his strength.

Okage, Shadow King is an RPG from the early-PS2 era. Being a rare breed at the time, it built a legacy somewhat akin to Dark Cloud — popular for a while, but fading into cult status as more widely-acclaimed games came out. That doesn't sound too impressive, admittedly, but hey, since when has mainstream adoption been a measure of quality? Putting aside the technical foibles that come with its age, it's been highly recommended to me, so I am very excited to bring it to the stream for this Halloween season!

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we begin Okage, Shadow King!

Thursday Throne - Assassin's Creed: Revelations - Session 11

We infiltrated Cappadocia...but that left me away from my command post for so long that most of Europe and the Mediterranean were under siege by the Templars before I could do anything about it. But now I'm back, and reexerting Assassin control.

It's October, which means spooky season, buuuut I feel like we're so close to beating this one, I ought to finish it first before we begin Thursday Thanatopsis or whatever.

So join us tonight at 9pm ET as we continue Assassin's Creed: Revelations!

Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon: Another Story - Session 4

Grindy Japanese RPGs with battles that are stupidly long and drawn out if you're not strong enough, yeah! This game has some very visible flaws, but still has charm. Fortunately, its flaws can easily be smoothed over by grinding between streams.

Join us tonight at 9pm ET as we continue Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon: Another Story!
