This was cool. I don't think I have the mental capacity to comment on it further than that.
 
If you use Blender then you should close it before running this game as the sub-games will crash your openGL and close your models FOR ETERNITY.

I think for a lot of us, your project was the most anticipated entry in the jam.  you did not disappoint
 
the first thing I loved right off the bat was the vincent price-esque horror host.  this is another example of your recent trend towards 3d models in your games, which I heartily approve of.  I think that started with the muppetlike creatures in Pleasure Dromes of Kubla Khan and most recently was seen in the thematically similar mini-horror game Horrible Screaming Murderer IV.   I hope you keep it up, because I absolutely adore your 3d animationed figures
 
of course getting into the meat of the game, it becomes clear this is also another instance of your even more recent trend towards whimsical mini flashgames with hand-drawn sprites and backgrounds.  in terms of their content, I think my favorite part was

I dunno anyone who can talk about game play and game design and consistently keep it as entertaining as you do! 
 
I love the helpless/hopeless narration of events transpiring regardless of player input, and the congregation of characters abruptly placed under player control as the games go from screen to screen. so far I've played this and 4-lung boy. 4-lung blew me away wrt it being a jam game, but this bma wrt it being kind of the ideal jam game, how it engagingly an unconventionally explores a theme...but I'm ruining your entire thread. really good submission!

pretty much agree with all of this.  I still need to check out 4-lung boy but mystery channel is my favorite entry so far.
