Alan has shut himself in the Dark Place to save his wife, and with only his typewriter and Thomas Zane as a guide, he must fight and write his way back out again with a fitting conclusion that will lock the Darkness away forever.
This is not a Let's Play; it is merely the idea of a Let's Play.
However, this will not be nearly enough to fill out the episode, and all our prior plans for following it have been dashed by technical difficulties. So, dear viewers, we shall be calling upon you to help us decide what we will be playing next. Watch the stream live, join us in IRC here, in your browser, or just in the built-in chat on the Twitch page, and let us know what you want to see! We have a few choices, but not enough time to make a decision we're confident in, which is why we're asking you to pick your poison.
Our (somewhat) prepared selections:
- Psychonauts: an item-collecting 3D platformer (a la Banjo Kazooie) from Double Fine, set in a summer camp for the psychically gifted. Full of great writing, strange humor, and just really fun all around.
- Sonic Generations: what many call a return to form for Sonic the Hedgehog, this game is total fanservice, filled with classic stages reimagined in the style of Sonic Adventure, and vice versa. Gotta go fast!
- Odin Sphere: a 2D beat-em-up RPG set in a Norse mythology-inspired world, with several stories occurring simultaneously in parallel. A quite successful experiment in storytelling, and some of the most beautiful sprite art and animation in any game, before or since.
I'm sure excited about tonight, and I hope you are too! See you all there!
