They definitely pulled it off, I'd say. They took Blair Witch lore and mixed it with that signature Bloober Team approach and I think it paid off. The Witch is alluded to but not shown and I liked that - keep her forever shrouded in mystery. Carver is a worthy acolyte and a genuinely frustrating antagonist and I could feel Ellis's frustration as if it were my own. I love Bloober Team and their games (Observer 2 please) and hope they keep on keeping on.
Agreed! You could really feel for Ellis and the emotional rollercoaster he was going through.
His own mental state pre-incident coupled with Carver's dragging him through the forest on a goose chase really pushed him over the edge. Both voice actors did a great job, I thought.
