The name’s Davenport. I review games.
So the other day I answer a knock at the door, and I see… something. Whatever it was, it had green scales, a beak, four purple eyes, and three legs.
“Hello!” it says.
“Uh… hi,” I says. “What are you supposed to be? Or do I want to know?”
“What do you mean by that?” he says, gettin’ all huffy. “I’m a human being, same as you!”
I raise an eyebrow.
“Well, okay, not quite like you,” he confesses. “Mom… wasn’t from around here.”
“You don’t say,” I says. “So what can I do for you?”
“Oh!” he says. “I’m here with a review copy of Black Void, a game of dark fantasy and Lovecraftian horror. In Earth’s distant past, a supernatural calamity casts humanity adrift across an alien-filled universe in which they’re the lowest of the low.”
“Well, that sounds real cheery,” I says.
“I did say that it’s dark fantasy,” he points out.
“Fair point,” I admit. “Fine, I’ll give it a go. I’ll let you know when the review’s done.”
“Great!” he says. “I’ll keep three eyes out for it.”
