This short but sweet expansion will give the players some final gritty details on the Penumbra story as well as a concentrated batch of puzzle solving.

    fan-fscking-tastic! Paid for and downloading now. I love these games. I’m still playing Overture, and by the time I finish Black Plague, that expansion will be out. So there will be no delay as I play through each. Like playing 1 big game. Presuming the expansion will be $20 or less, you can’t beat it for <= $60. Same price as some AAA titles. Only this is way better than most of the crap put out these days.
