Can't wait to hear more about it! :)
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

I know I'm jumping the gun here, but what the heck...

Is it safe to assume C9 will have a Telltale style pricing model? In other words, buy individual episodes or buy the whole pack and get a bit of a discount?
Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says "Treatment is simple. Great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says "But Doctor...I am Pagliacci." Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.

I want it to turn out that the main character is paranoid and nothing is going on.

I just think it'd be silly, and I'd enjoy that. :P (Maybe just as an alternate ending if you replay it and get enough points... or replay it and fail to get enough points? :\)

Corridor 9 is a story I feel very passionate about, and it's a very personal one.

It's probably the deepest story I've ever written. Its themes centers around a battle between Religion vs Science, Life vs Death, Man vs Machine... It's extremely atmospheric and you could say it's a sci-fi spiritual drama with hints of horror.

You'll have to wait more to hear about it. Maybe we'll release some concept art soon if you guys make enough noise ;)

*Makes Noise!*

Honestly, this sounds like a rather compelling story just from the brief.
So, how can I help?

I have a question. From the plot summary I'm reminded a bit of Shutter Island, the end of which reveals that
Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

It makes you really think about everything that happened and provokes a lot of discussion. Is C9 going to get into your head like that?  You say it has hints of horror, and I can only assume from the setting that it can definitely make you feel a bit uneasy, but is it going to be any of a psychological thriller-type game?

Somewhat reminds me of Shivers...

Anyone remember that game by Sierra?

Is it weird that I imagined that going to the tune of "Boys Boys Boys" by Lady Gaga?

Anyway...

I'm uncomfortable with the amount of Lady Gaga in this forum as of late.

Also, I fail to see how more noise can be made than from this!

Yeah, there was that whole "the suffers are singing Bad Romance" thing...

I think that much noise deserves some concept art.
