S2E4 – Anchorhead (Part 1)

Continuing in the spirit of Halloween, today we delve into the Lovecraftian world of Anchorhead. Join us as we tackle this eerie text-based adventure game, discovering the secrets of a rain-soaked New England town as we break into buildings, get lost up dead-end streets, and find that there are apparently no serious consequences to throwing an adventure game heroine off a bridge. Twice.

This is a bit of a departure from our usual episode style, but one we think you’ll enjoy. Adventure games are a unique take on storytelling, and Anchorhead in particular is well-written and atmospheric. If you’d like to try it for yourself, you can find the game here.

If you’d like to hear us continue our Anchorhead adventures, or you have other text-based games to recommend, send us a message on Twitter to @wahpodcast, or an email to wahpodcast@gmail.com. You can also find all our individual social media accounts from the About page, above. Finally, we have a brand new Facebook group, where you can stop by to chat with all our hosts and let us know what you think of our recent episodes. We hope you’ll join us there!
