Game Debate
31 July 2010
  • Excerpt: My God did The Whispered World drive me mad initially. After the first few hours, I didn't have a good thing to say about it and would rant about it to anyone who would listen. Even if they weren't listening. Actually, I'd rant on even if there was nobody there.
