In todays second update, I’m going to show you how you can become an eternal resident of the Hanwell Mental Institute. We told you how your name can appear in the game depending on the tier you choose, and now it’s time we give you an in-depth preview:

This large register can be browed by the players and will contain all the names of our Permanent Visitors.

Educated Inmates will be featured in the rundown classroom.

Become a Creative Inmate in the workshop! A bizarre item will have your name on it.

Fancy yourself an Artist Inmate? Then give us your picture and we will include it in the game, along with your real signature.

As of this writing, the Educated Inmate tier is all gone but some Creative and Artist Inmate are still available. Better act quickly if you want to be featured in any of these rooms! More examples of Doctors and Inmates tomorrow.

Live Stream Event

Woo! The perfect closure for this awesome Kickstarter campaign. Thanks to the wonders of technology, you will be able to see our ugly faces LIVE and chat with us. We’ll have Pablo Forsolloza, the Lead Artist of the game, Daniel Pharos, our wonder composer, and yours truly. The lovely Say Mistage from Phoenix Online Studios will be moderating the chat.

It will be great to have you there and share the final moments of this Kickstarter together. We’re planning to reveal more details about Asylum: Memories and review the announcements of the past month, in addition to answering all your questions. We’ll be using Google Hangout, so all you have to do is visit our YouTube page tomorrow at 2PM EST or 7PM GMT. You can participate with the YouTube chat system itself so you won’t need any sort of additional software — just login and discuss! Here’s hoping you all can make it!

Talk to you again tomorrow!

      Sweet, I feel a connection to that "soon to be Dagon sculpture" now. I'll be looking out for it furiously. And You don't even want to know what I'll do, if it's not there!

      Aha, I recently saw a Hangout from POStudios itself being moderated by the lovely Say. Seems to be her sort of thing. :-P
      7 PM is dinner time afk in my schedule, so I'll probably will have to rely on the recording afterwards but that's okay.

      Eventho I have an appointment tonight, ill defenitely try to pick a few minutes of the stream.

      I was exciting when i read "Richard Pickman"
      I love Lovecrafts stories absolutely, so i hope there will be a lot of references inside the game.

      And don't forget Delapore who ended up in an asylum. I think he or the rats would fit in the game perfectly.

      "They must know it was the rats; the slithering, scurrying rats whose scampering will never let me sleep; the daemon rats that race behind the padding in this room and beckon me down to greater horrors than I have ever known; the rats they can never hear; the rats, the rats in the walls."

      Great idea. Pity I can't afford the higher tiers right now... I'm a long way off :)

    6. Creator Fate on February 26, 2013

      Thanks for the screenshots! They look very cool!

      Live Stream Event!

    7. Creator Asrai on February 26, 2013

      I'll definitely watch the recording after work. Maybe I'll get one of my headaches and have to take a break around 2 tomorrow. ;)

    8. Creator Agustín Cordes on February 26, 2013

      Not for now, we really tried to choose a timeframe that would work best for our all backers. The event will be recorded, though :)

    9. Creator Asrai on February 26, 2013

      Beautiful screen shots, I can't wait to see all of this in game. :)
      Are there any future plans on a live event after business hours in the US?

    10. Creator Aesgard on February 26, 2013

      I think that Dagon sculpture should had been made by...Agustín Cordes!

      Great screenshots. I wish I could afford the Permanent Visitor tier

    11. Creator Agustín Cordes on February 26, 2013

      Good catch ;)

      Yes, those paintings are veeeery old, we have them since the early stages of development. And, you know, the resemblance to the Dagon logo was pure coincidence. But, now that you mention it, we'll make it look the same :D

    12. Creator Seba on February 26, 2013

      Those are some notable inmates already. Throw in Nyarlathotep and You've got quite a bridge team.

      Isn't that the Dagon logo in sculpture form, on the third screen? And I think I recognize some of the painting on the fourth screen, from the early FaceTheHorror teaser site? Nice touches, 5/5 tentacles!

    13. Creator The Lurker formally known as Mrs. S.D. on February 26, 2013

      Gorgeous screenshots! I'm super excited to see all the folks mentioned in-game!

    14. Creator Adam Gaffney on February 26, 2013

      God bless living in the UK, I should be home by 7PM hopefully, will be good to chat to you guys :)

    15. Creator Serena Nelson - Hero of the AGRM on February 26, 2013

      Damn, those are nice screenshots. Almost makes me want to up to the creative inmate tier. Alas, my current project list forbids me from being higher than a "normal" inmate.

      Darn I will still be in class, everyone enjoy and ask many juicy questions for me!
