Wow 10 years already?! I"m not good with sentimental words, but I’ll give it a try. Scratches surely deserves it! :nod:
I remember walking into my local Best Buy and browsing the computer game section and finding nothing of interest when all of a sudden, I come across a black and red box with the title “Scratches”. Thinking to myself this sounds like something I would play, I bought it and it forever changed me (in a good deranged sort of way ;)) I immediately fell in love with the decrepit Blackwood manor, lonely isolated atmosphere and beautifully eerie music that accompanied me on my adventure throughout the game. I am super picky when it comes to games like this and I searched high and low for a game that would captivate the dark twisted corners of my mind and Scratches did just that. I became obsessed with the game from the house down to the immersive story line and I STILL find myself thinking of the game and comparing it to others (most of which never even measure up)
With that said, thank you Agustin! You’ve unleashed a Scratches monster in me that was hiding somewhere deep in the dank basement with Robin. So here’s to Scratches! A game that truly has stuck with me and forever will.
