Well, it’s about bloody time!!!

OMG, actual content on Scary-Crayon?!? You're not dreaming! 😀

Okay, so first we have another quick comic in Dusty Plastic HELLside #19 -- nothing fancy there, but hopefully you'll find it a bit amusing. The more substantial offering, however, is a review of The White Chamber, a freeware game from Studio Trophis. I first played this delightfully creepy gem (and took most of the screencaps for this review, incidentally) back in 2005, and it's still as enjoyable today as it was back then (though admittedly much of it seemed new to me, since I'd forgotten the solutions to the bulk of the puzzles). The current version even has German speech -- something the older one didn't -- so listening to the foreign voices made the experience even more fresh!

Anyway, the review is largely spoiler free (despite how wicked cool they look, I avoided including screencaps of the really freaky sequences so you won't be any less horrified when you encounter them in the game), so feel free to read it before you download the game... which you definitely should. It's not a long game (unless you really get stuck -- in which case Google is your friend; there are a number of walkthroughs on the web -- you'll almost certainly finish in under two hours), but it is a very fun one. Be warned, however, as The White Chamber is not for the faint of heart or the squeamish of stomach.

In other news, I've always got more content on Articulated Discussion -- recently I posted reviews of Masters of the Universe Classics She-Ra and the BioShock 2 Young Eleanor & Little Sister 2-pack over there, and I'm still doing Bootleg Tuesday (almost) every week. I'm also going to be covering a certain convention for AD soon... which should result in quite a bit of content over there and maybe a little for SC as well. We'll see!

Okay, that's all for now; hopefully I'll be back sooner rather than later! Ja --
