July, 1883. Half-Rats is, as he usually seems to be; down on his luck and fretting for the future. One fateful night, he carelessly decides to drown his sorrows with strong libations - and he runs up a tab at a pub he knows he can't pay...Remarkably; Instead of a reproachful speech and coarse removal, he is instead told a tale he can hardly believe. A tale involving great riches, but even greater peril. If he was not so desperate, he wouldn't conceive of embarking on what could be a wild goose chase to locate a forgotten and virtually unknown town. Half-Rats' doubts were abated somewhat when the publican shews his utmost sincerity - albeit in a strange and effusive manner - and draws him a rude map.
"Thank the lord, for he smote that place from the Earth in '81. We lived, but most met their destruction the night that liberating conflagration visited freedom upon us. We're the last of 'em...There was a vault in the bank, large sums of money would have been stole away there, safe. We vowed never to go back, to keep that place a dread secret until tonight."
The seemingly mythical town in question is referred to as "Eminence". With no other hope to speak of, and fearing that this may be treachery after all; Half-Rats is still compelled to begin this peregrination to his "El Dorado" with weapons at the ready. But he'll find much more than gold and banknotes before his journey is through. All is not what it seems, and he'll find a living, livid hell to contend with...And the close of a dilemma he'd all but forgotten.

Half-Rats – A somewhat educated gentleman who fell from grace long ago, but still retains a singular social fluidity and still holds fast to the moral compass of his upbringing, and has been known to rub shoulders with bad company, while also fraternizing with the upper class when he can – where some regard his kinship as a novelty at times. Likes his whiskey. He has a certain amount of mettle, and tends to show levity as a means of dealing with dire situations. He had heard the rumors of Eminence back in Detroit, and decided to embark on an adventure!

Wow, it's been quite a while, eh? You must be asking, "Where were you these past months? What's going on, why no updates?" Well, maybe you're not, but I'll just assume you are anyway and give you three wonderfully horrible explanations!
Reason 1: We had nothing newsworthy to show/tell that wouldn't also potentially spoil the whole thing for you! Creating quite the dilemma as you could imagine
Reason 2: Thanos was trapped on an island for months and we lost communication with him for the most part. It was awful. In short, I had no idea what was going on besides some snippets of decoded transmissions from Thanos' base camp. Those snippets containing information/descriptions of things which fell under the reason 1 category. (See Reason 1)
Reason 3: See Reasons 1 and 2.
SO, things were a little nerve wracking for a while. Yes, you read that right. The team lead had no idea what was going on for a large portion of time.
But things have changed! For the better, of course. I mean to say, WE'RE BACK ON TRACK!
First, I'd like to thank EVERYONE again for helping to get Parasomnia Greenlit!
The steam release is already set up and ready to go for Trick or Treat time! So get ready for it! Halloween is a time known for its demons, vampires, ghosts, goblins, ghouls, gangstas, and other "G" things, so of course we HAD to make sure to add our own to the world on the 31st! Plus, it's tradition, dammit!
Now for some things to make your life less Hellish!
Half-Cat isn't the only one to follow fish-treats now!
The barrel indicators for the shotgun are NOW located near the cross-hair! Now, Isn't THAT cool?
NOW, for something that WILL make your life more Hellish...totally negating all the above! Check out this (Failed) early test by Shepard!
The Cindermen throw fire now. How lovely! Welcome to the BBQ!
Other Wondrous Things:
1. Longer overall playing time - more parts and puzzles have been added to the game!
2. Weapons re-balancing - it's real, we're doing it right now!
3. Pigs now have a special ability...
3. Steam version will feature...at some point...ACHIEVEMENTS!
The Beta testers are back in action, making sure your gaming experience will be a good one!
So, at this point, we'd like to hear from YOU! We here at Heath Games would like to know:
What are YOUR Halloween plans?
Pics of the day:
That crazy Zikshadow!
Alrighty! Thank you all! We love you! See you this HA-HA-HA-Halloweeeen!
