So Chilly...


Just arrived in Scoggins, Minnesota. Population, 754. Temperature...it's cold. And not much to look at. According to the Agency, there's some kind of situ-- incide-- THING going on at the local eraser factory. The whole plant has shut down.

There's a weird man staring at me.

Hopefully this won't be a big waste of time.

Tonight, we take a break from the imminent horror of Lone Survivor for the suspicion, doubts and uncertain trepidation of Puzzle Agent! Top FBI puzzle-solver Nelson Tethers is sent to Scoggins, Minnesota, to investigate the mysterious shutdown of a factory vital to the nation's well-being...but finds much more than he bargained for. With art by Graham Annable, and a story reminiscent of Twin Peaks and Fargo, Puzzle Agent feels at once welcoming and frightening.

Join us in this frozen, puzzle-solving mystery tonight at 6pm ET!

Lone Survivor - Session 1


Dear diary,

Since the outbreak started, I've tried to look after myself. A little better each day...the trouble is...

I don't know what's real anymore.

Lone Survivor is a retro-style survival horror game, and one of the standout titles in the genre from the last few years. After a zombie outbreak, the titular lone survivor grasps desperately at life and reality. Will he find a reason to struggle on? Or is his only solace in his own head?

Tune in tonight at 6pm ET as John, Melissa, Daniel and I begin this second game in our Halloween series!

Thomas Was Home Alone

Hello again, Internet! Sorry for missing last week's episode; I was sick, and didn't even have it in me to prop myself upright and play a game on air. (Really, probably more the fault of the prescription cough syrup. Knocked me out all weekend, pretty much.) But now I'm back, feeling mostly better, Brendan and Mabry are coming over, and we're going to beat two games tonight!

First up, the thrilling/inspiring conclusion to Thomas Was Alone — we picked this one up last time, thinking we could get through it in a single session, but fell just a little short. What lies in store for Jo, Sam, Paul and Team Jump? What could Grey be plotting? What about everybody else?

Next, we begin our Halloween programming with Home, a short but, by all accounts, tense and mysterious game. Awakened by a thunderstorm, you find yourself in a house that is not your own. Home adapts to its player and their choices, making no two plays quite the same. What sort of a story will we weave tonight?

Tune in tonight at 6pm ET and learn the answers to all these questions! Be ready to be moved, and to be scared. Probably in that order.
