Thanks for playing!


  1. I played both Withermoore and Thornegrave and I really enjoyed them. I thought Thornegrave made a little more sense than Withermoore since it explained things a little better (like why Finlay knew what Graham was dreaming in the last game, what her story was, etc). The only "bug" that I found in this game was SPOILER

    ...after I got done axing John's wife to death, I went back to the manor and when I clicked on the food in the dining room it still had Finlay remarking on what a good cook she is! I found that more hilarious than anything, although that might just be my morbid sense of humor talking. By the way, I know that this one just came out, but are there any plans for other games in the future? Thanks!

  2. Hi, terribly sorry to keep you waiting for so long, but better late than never I guess!

    That bug is indeed as hilarious as it is morbid - maybe Finlay should do a clever quip on Margaret's poor taste in meat instead!

    I started work on a sequel almost as soon as Thornegrave was done, but due to my current job it's currently delayed indefinitely. Time will tell if it will see the light of day ;-)

    In any case, here's a little teaser:

    I don't know if you're even going to read this, but it was really nice to stumble upon some quality feedback after so long - cheers!
