The first season did a great job of bringing the characters together, and that final episode was epic. Halfway through the first episode of Dead Light and already can't wait for the next one to get posted. Brilliant work my dudes.

Hi. What are your episode/content plans moving forward? Once per week/month etc? I can see 11 episodes. Am I missing some? My personal Cthulhu podcast Innsmouth gold standard is, Into The Darkness, but you guys have set off well. Keep up the good work. I thought Cantstanyerbits was an eye roller at first, but had me chuckling every time. The humour - roleplay - keeping - production balance works well.

Great listen. The production is put together really well. Love the intro and character voices. I’m not a gamer so it took a minute to understand the concept of the game and how it all worked. I was sucked in after the second or third episode. Very comical yet suspenseful.
