PAGAN: EMPORIUM — THE DEVIL IS WATCHING
"Sakawa is believed to be a Ghanaian term for illegal practices which combine modern Internet-based fraud with fetish rituals. The rituals, which are mostly in the form of sacrifices, are intended to spiritually manipulate victims so that the scammer's fraud is successful" —WIKIPEDIA
HAVE you ever wanted to TRAVEL ABROAD? Too bad, because you're going to fucking die here. We all are going to fucking die here. This deadLand cactusLand broodingLand cruelestLand hellWorld is going grab us all in it's dirty yellow TEETH and chew us up until all our bodies are smashed into twenty or thirty different pieces. Yes, we are the hex fiends and the witches, and we are going to fucking die here.
This is a twilight game; this is a witching hour curse. This is for the SCIONS who sit in HIGHCHAPEL and await the the great re-ending. This is for the BLACK HEARTS and the NIGHT WRAITHS. This is for the OVERGOERS who do not know how to live.
In plainer terms, this is a short little first person RPG with a secret (ending). It is a semi-squeal to PAGAN: Technopolis. See if you can manage make FRIENDS with the devil.

Just finished playing the PAGAN series so far and I'm a fan. I love art that still has the idolatrous glow of an occult object, though that may be more of an eye of the beholder thing. The experience of playing these games reminds me of David Lynch's work in that the imagery and atmosphere affect me at the level of feeling without exposition or explanation. The intense sense of significance coming from images and events I can't understand or explain at the rational level is uncanny. If I had to scrounge a complaint, it would be that you chose Rider-Waite over the Marseille Tarot for Autogeny, but that's both petty and personal. Looking forward to more of your work, and deeply curious about the occult beliefs behind it.
Also, that weird instrumental version of Northwest Passage at the end of Emporium is great
