The Grey Rainbow, reviews and reflections
The Grey Rainbow, our first game, has been out for 4 months. In that time we received both praise, and some criticism. Since we are evil we don't care either way, and we hate everyone!

Here is a summary of all the reviews and noteworthy publications of The Grey Rainbow, so far.Read More »
