  1. Well, we've been working away quietly throughout 2018 but we are pleased to announce that Dance of Death: Du Lac & Fey will be releasing April 5th 2019 on PC. Our story takes place in London, 1888. With Whitechapel’s citizens living in the shadow of Jack the Ripper, Arthurian legends take to the streets in a thrilling quest to stop the killer before he strikes again. Take on the roles of immortal hero Sir Lancelot Du Lac, and cursed sorceress Morgana Le Fey, as you join forces with Whitechapel local, Mary Kelly, to explore the capital’s underbelly and encounter a diverse cast of characters along the way. Wishlist on Steam ➡️ Website ➡️ Here are some new screenshots.

  4. If you're going to do plot exposition then Part 8 is how to do it! From the hypnotic opening of the lights on the dark winding road with the droning audio this episode was mesmeric. As the scene with Mr Cooper and Ray came to an end I found myself thinking, "How are they going to follow that? Is Dougie going to stand around with a coffee cup? Oh, the Nine Inch Nails! I'm not going to get out of this so easily, am I?" The hypnotic, dynamic cameras have been some of my favourite parts of Series 3 so far: the cameras and the dude staring at the box and the box staring back at the dude, the pan to the creepy thing in the jail cell, Dougie's run of luck in the casino. I held out no expectations of Series 3 before it aired but I have to say that reserving watching the episodes for the hours after midnight and waiting to be in the mood for Twin Peaks, allowing it to fill that dream space when I'm a little bit too tired and should really have gone to bed already, has been richly rewarding in general and Part 8 was a real payoff. The work put in by Ruth De Jong in Production Design, Cara Browner for Art Direction, Peter Deming in Cinematography and Duwayne Dunham's editing here are phenomenal. So much of these techniques are rarely seen to such effect in film, let alone TV, with the likes the 2001 and A Clockwork Orange coming to mind. The place - that I like to call Silent-Cinema-on-Sea is like something from Jules Verne. I love it. The confusing, mesmeric nature of Part 8 also made me think of Adam Curtis' Bitter Lake, a documentary I watched at a similar time of the morning and managed to inhabit that dream space just as well... actually now I've gone back to look at it Bitter Lake (link below for anyone interested) also starts with dash cam footage and then indistinct figures performing an odd movement all accompanied by droning music and the line, "Increasingly we live in a world where nothing makes any sense." How appropriate that is for Twin Peaks now, a place that in exposing its workings, seems to have less coherence! A consideration on Silent-Cinema-on-Sea: is this the same "Non Existent" place that Agent Cooper was sent to? In the time that Agent Cooper was there with the No-eyed Woman things seemed much less coherent (until the No-eyed Woman's sacrifice) and much more terrifying, with the banging at the door and the skipping time line. Did something bad happen to Silent-Cinema-on-Sea? Is it in fact the White Lodge? Whatever is happening, it appears that there is a full Civil War raging between the doppelgangers. Either way, I'm happy to let Lynch and Frost take me on that journey as I think it's going to keep paying off.
