Poe knows Photo Hunts

Did you know publisher MumboJumbo turned Edgar Allen Poe‘s eternally emo tales into a Find the Crap photo hunt on the DS? And did you know Midnight Mysteries: The Edgar Allen Poe Conspiracy has been out for so long that I just now stumbled across these screens from the upcoming German release? It’s all true… but I kinda wish it weren’t.

Tastefully turning The Great Gatsby into an NES styled platformer is one thing. Cobbling together scenes of assorted junk and slapping some Poe lines in between is another. I’d love to yell nevermore at these guys but they already kinda went ahead and made the game. If it weren’t so terribly generic it’d almost be worth pointing out to Tiny Cartridge.
