Go To

Quotes from the Cast & Crew

"The producer Leila kept calling me asking when was I going to be finished with the blackboard song. I had no idea what to write, I was so blocked. I rented a hot rub room for an hour and told myself I had ONE HOUR and I'd better come out of there with something finished. I'm pretty proud of it still. I'm astounded people remember this! You guys made my day."
Jim Owen (Jim of Seattle), a Composer of the series, in reference to "The Mathematics Lesson"

Quotes about Nightmare Ned

"I've played games with creepy music and games with sad music, but never anything that combines those two feelings as masterfully as Nightmare Ned. Almost every piece in its soundtrack sends chills up my spine, speaking of hopelessness and, appropriately, nightmares. The piano is used to an eerie effect, almost simulating the aforementioned chills."
Klagmar, a Youtube user, in reference to the "In the Mouth" track from the game
