    CONS: Can’t fail the investigation. Menu options on the bottom of the screen are too small.

    CONS: The overall story is unfinished. Marketed as a horror despite not being scary. Mysteries are too easy because the answers are overly telegraphed. Comedy is too esoteric for non Penny Arcade fans.
