Penumbra Questionnaire

Just for Overture for now. I’ll add questions for Black Plague and Requiem as I play them. Though if anyone wants to go ahead and do that, be my guest. Wink

Spoiler below!

At any time during play did you...

...call Phillip an idiot for a) going to Greenland in the first place, b) wandering the wilderness with no shelter but that convenient mineshaft, or c) not bailing as soon as things started to get weird?
A) Yes
B) Yes
C) Yes

... cuss out the auto save when it saved at the worst possible moment?

... have to go back to an earlier save because you forgot something important?

... shout out loud for Red to shut up whenever he started yammering on at the wrong time?
Yes, I enjoyed his banter but sometimes he spoke crucial information when I was running from the wolves etc.

... go from being annoyed by Red’s jaw flapping to welcoming it because it was the only friendly thing in the whole area?
I was never annoyed by Red's banter but I did welcome it as the only friendly presence.

... get stuck on a puzzle, consult an internet walkthrough, and then feel like an idiot because the answer was so damned obvious?
No, often the answer wasn't pretty left-field (not obvious at all).

... wish you hadn’t turned the generator on?

... wonder if the dogs regained their health whenever they ran off screen because the one you were trying to kill just wouldn’t die?
No. Just thought they took a lot to kill.

... crouch on top of a crate or barrel with pickaxe in hand and get weird looks from family/friends/roommates as you called “Here puppy, puppy, puppy...”?

... say out loud “Hey mutt, I’m right here!” to a dog that you were hoping to kill as it walked right past you without even seeing you?
No, but I would sometimes jump up and down loudly to get their attention. Most of the time they saw me quickly though.

... got weird looks (and the occasional concerned sounding “Are you alright?”) from friends/family/roommates when you fell off the barrel or crate and were shouting and cussing at Phillip because he just wouldn’t jump back up there?
No, but I scared myself quite a few times in those situations.

... wonder after running from a giant worm “What the hell am I doing here?”?

... feel physically ill and try to stop the incinerator?
No, but it was definitely one of the most disturbing moments I've experienced within a game. A real moral conundrum.

... feel sorry for Red when you learn just how long he had been down there?
Yes, absolutely.

... feel even more sorry for Red once you learned that he had been a child when he was stranded down there?

... get steamed at least a half dozen times in the Refinery?
Yes, and then some. Hated that part. So annoying.

... try to flee from a dog and end up running right smack into it instead?

...accidentally set yourself on fire during the spider chase?

(If you played Amnesia: The Dark Descent first...)
... walk into the Refinery and think: “This isn’t the Refinery.”?

... deliberately blow yourself up with the explosive just for laughs?

... jump down in those large crevices towards the end just for kicks?
