Soma Games has released an early look at Escape the Gloomer gameplay on its YouTube channel!
Seemingly, you play AS The Gloomer, typing commands to the rat based on textual prompts that appear on the screen.
If a command is successful, a new prompt, read aloud by a narrator, appears and the game continues. Of note, Stormfin is mentioned in the sample game text ... how will he be involved?
The official description is as follows:
- Escape the Gloomer is a modern take on the old-school text adventures but with features like surround sound, voice activation and other modern amenities.
- We're using the term "Conversational Adventure (tm)"
- The intended experience is for something like playing your car, or talking to Alexa or Siri. Imagine the glory days of…

At Plattecon 31 last week in Wisconsin, Clopas LLC, the main developer for Escape the Gloomer, conducted the first public demo of the game in an effort to receive user feedback.
"One really key statistic was that 75% of the people would recommend the game to their friends. This corresponds to the 75% that rated the game 3 or 4 out of a possible 4 points," Clopas stated in a follow-up Facebook post. "Considering the diverse type of players we got this was very good."
Clopas will be holding further testing at Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco later this month, from March 19-23.
Soma Games will also be at GDC, showing off a demo of The Scout, believed to feature the Lilygrove Catacombs.

Asmodeus Poisonteeth in "Redwall" is a giant one of these "calculating" snakes.
Returning champion Lane Flynn, who looks like the only contestant to buzz in, correctly answered "What is an Adder?"
Unfortunately, Lane got the Final Jeopardy question wrong, and finished in second place.

I know it's February, but welcome to 2018 on the Redwall Wiki!
Our first Redwall Collectors Community of the year will be covering three of the Dutch Redwall Trilogies.
Today, we'll be taking a look at De Roodburcht (Redwall), Het Moswoud (Mossflower), and Mariël (Mariel of Redwall).
The few Redwall novels published in the Netherlands are each split into three separate hardcover books; each book consists of around 16-20 chapters, approximately 160-170 pages, and the same chapter icons from the English language publications.
Like the German Redwall Saga, the - very striking - cover artwork is etched onto the physical cover directly.
Additional artwork is found on the spine. When all three books in a trilogy are together, like on a shelf, an image is disp…
