WHISPERER IN THE DARK
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.
