I hope they are going to do a series, like with Contradiction, where they play through this entire game. I need this.

Lol i love how all in the actors are going. I love this. Heres hoping we see more!

BTW I know all sensible people understand this, but the waiting 24 hours thing for police to investigate someone as missing is total nonsense. It all entirely depends on the circumstances. If you report your mate missing at 4am on a Saturday night because they got a separate taxi home and you are too drunk to understand, no one is going to be rushing to find them. But if a man reported his two daughters missing in the morning and no one has seen them at all, a massive search would begin almost immediately. I love the idea that the cops just say "nope, we are going to give a 24 hr head start to whoever might have abducted your girls".

It is great to see the return of FMVinny now besides a playthrough of this we need some of the other FMV games that have been released not long ago for example

Interrogation Files: Port Landsend

Dark Nights with Poe and Munro

Role Player: Full Immersion

I Saw Black Clouds

The Complex

At Dead Of Night

Death Come True

She Sees Red

Five Dates

Jessika

On a side note now is a great time to give Contradiction - Spot The Liar a try cause they put out a Legacy update that improves UI and better audio and video quality.

I think my enjoyment of FMV games is inversely proportional to the quality of the video. I just can't come around on HD ones, feels wrong.

Please someone tell me I'm not going crazy, and there's really some window stuck on the right hand side of this video for the entire length! Even during the main menu. How would nobody remark on this yet? It's the aliens' work.

edit: Vinny fixed it, making me look legitimately crazy now for whoever reads this late. :)

@splodge: This is EXACTLY what came to mind.

For anyone ANYWHERE who reads this and is unfortunate enough to be in this situation, you hit the street and ask everyone to look with you immediately. There is NEVER a case in which police will not start a search party ASAP.

@thechris: If you time pressing play on this quick look from right after the GB logo to when everything turns into Technicolor in The Wizard of Oz, it syncs up perfectly mannn
