"When I finished episode four, I felt sick to my stomach. For a game that plays with so many clichés, it never ceases to amaze me how each episode still manages to surprise and draw me in further. ‘Dark Room’ pulls at your heartstrings from the very beginning and doesn’t hesitate to kick you when your guard is down. It’s a feeling I’ve only ever experienced while playing The Walking Dead, and now I sit here anxiously writing as I begin the wait for the finale. Things that used to bother me about earlier episodes don’t anymore, and it’s rewarding to see solid continuity across the series. It’s still quirky at its core, but I’ve crossed all barriers of disbelief to immerse myself. There’s no stoping now!"
