I was getting a kick out of this game even though it is largely a theme park game the skill based system and the unusual setting and the discovery quests had me hooked. The voice work was way better than average as well and the dialog wasn't quite as stilted as most games like say SWTOR. Then I hit that magical point, the point where I recognized someone as Jeffrey Combs. The fact they got him to do voices for this game seals the deal for me, I'll gladly buy the future episodes now.

Yeah that was by far one of the cooler moments in Kingsmouth for me. The game already oozes Lovecraftian charm, but then hearing Combs voice in there really hits it home for me...
