It’s terrifying, as you can see in the video below.

A: No matter. As you have probably noticed, we’ve now passed through the kitchen window and are currently chewing on your leg with our razor-like teeth.
The concept and the art style tickle just the right parts of my brain, but I’ll be damned if I can work out how it’s going to play. Jim will be sharing some impressions shortly so all shall be revealed. He’s probably playing it right now, which makes me exceedingly jealous. I want to be hunted by haunts in my own home!
