Release Me - soporifical

Rule of Rose...

A story too cruel - too beautiful - to go untold...

Since I already kind of posted about it on Giant Bomb, I decided to go with this post first.

 

Once upon a time, Amazon.com put this game on my recommendations list. Reading about it, I was positive it was not my kind of game. Way too violent/scary for someone as sensitive as me. Fortunately-Unfortunately (depending on how you look at it... and I change my mind on a day-to-day basis), something got me hooked enough that I couldn't get it out of my mind. It sort of demented me cruelly. ~_~;

I figured it was one of those things where I couldn't forget about it, because I didn't know what happened. So, in order to free myself, I read the entire game script. And I was done...

 

For about a year and a half. Somehow, I began to think about the game again, and thought... oh, I was just blowing things out of proportion. It wasn't really all that scary... was it? And I thought maybe I could, at least, try watching it via YouTube.
 
However, in my researching of the game, I found an awesome website dedicated to figuring out the mysteries left behind in the game. And I found something in one of the blog posts that traumatized me so much that I had trouble being alone or at night for MONTHS.

 

Funny thing is, for me... watching the game (which I did do) is not nearly as scary as the mystery exploring that goes on at that site. There's some blood and creepy imps,*shivers*, yes, but what you actually see in the game is not nearly as bad as what you can see in your mind... if you really take the time to think about.

 

Anyways, I finally bought the game... and someday I will try to play it, but... it's probably not a good idea. Especially not alone. ~_~; But I do spend lots of time on that site. I've read every post I keep pretty up-to-date with what's being talked about. It really is awesome.


Ah, I'm torn. I want to try playing it... but I get freaked out so easily. It's not like I don't know what's coming, having watched the whole thing,  but I'm sure it's more scary playing it. And at the time when I did watch it, it probably wasn't too bad only in comparision to what my mind was seeing just about constantly. But I'm not seeing that very much anymore.

Someone come play it with me? <3
