WHIS­PERER IN THE DARK

EDGE - - PLAY -

Your re­la­tion, who wrote that fate­ful let­ter sum­mon­ing you to the fam­ily abode, nar­rates ac­tions and events as you tra­verse the un­der­world, and with­out his in­ter­jec­tions much of the gravitas that ac­com­pa­nies sim­ple de­ci­sions would be lost. Each ob­ser­va­tion is pre­sented in an ap­prox­i­ma­tion of Love­craft’s weighty, sus­pense­ful prose, some­times too con­sciously grandil­o­quent but close enough. Voice ac­tor Wayne June takes credit for much of the im­pact: like the nar­ra­tor of The Rats In The Walls, cracks in his san­ity are sug­gested rather than stated. His nar­ra­tion is au­thor­i­ta­tive but af­flicted by strange pac­ing and stum­bles, a re­flec­tion of the ex­haust­ing dun­geon it­self. It’s a rare de­vel­oper that han­dles Love­craft with such skill.
