The Moving Pixels Podcast Spends Halloween with 'The Music Machine'

The Music Machine tells a story about evil, both of an intentional nature and of more awful, more accidental kind.

Our resident horror game aficionado recommended this game for discussion this Halloween week.

David Szymanski's horror titles, like The Moon Sliver and Fingerbones, seem to be gaining a bit of a cult following among horror fans, and at least some of those games seem to be sketching out the basis for a larger mythos that Szymanski is developing. As part of this mythos, The Music Machine is presented through a high contrast aesthetic and within the context of a Lovecraftian universe. The game tells a story about evil, both of an intentional nature and of a more awful, more accidental kind.

This podcast is also available via Soundcloud.
