About the Story

The Harrison Mansion is closing after 45 years of delighting its visitors with collections of the weird and recreations of the macabre. The night before, the Fortean Society of New England gathers in the haunt to celebrate its history and investigate its reputation as a real house of horrors. You volunteer to take a shift in the Fly eye, a room with five monitors that watch the most haunted corners within the house. You can't watch all five simultaneously, though, so what exactly will you see?

This is a shortish but heavily replayable game.

You are at a Halloween party in a haunted house. It's your job to watch 5 monitors to look for spooky activity.

There's a death, and the explanation for that death depends on which monitors you were watching.

I found the writing good, the sounds polished, and so on, but the core mechanic just wasn't clicking with me. Sometimes you were supposed to be looking, sometimes listening, sometimes talking; I felt like I would have preferred more segregation between the various activities you can engage in.
