Post: RE: What do you think of the game's length?

I wish the game was longer, but for 20 bucks, it was unquestionably a good deal. In fact, with the length that it was, I would consider 30 bucks a fair price.

I edited my OP regarding what Alexander actually is, since I decided it's going to be left deliberately and permanently ambiguous by Frictional, and so probably isn't worth debating. However, I think...

I suspect this bit of commentary was simply recorded before some content was cut, and Frictional overlooked it. Perhaps at one point in the development cycle there were other encounter-able NPCs Dani...

The only reason I'm playing this game is because of a review I read. Would have never heard of it, otherwise. Game Informer is a major magazine with a larger reader-base (they're GameStop's partner)...
