AGS Panel Review
"While the author's grasp of comedy and surreal imagery is as reliable as ever, a lack of technical consistency proves detrimental to player enjoyment. Somewhat painful audio may be intentional."
3 people commented on this game (newest first):
Skull successfully weaves a story around intriguing ideas about what else ghosts could be, if not actually the souls of the deceased. However, like with many mysteries the resolution is somewhat cliched and disappointing. Also, the hotspots can be really hard to find and troublesome in general.
