After spending a few minutes wandering around Candlelight Studios' The Empty Inn, I was left wondering where all of the idiot townsfolk had gone off to. You know, the guys who say things like "Bandit hideout is to the north.", "Welcome to Cornelia", and the dreaded "Watch me dance!". Nobody was there! And my little candle seemed to be dwindling, but it was all right since someone had scattered matches everywhere. No big deal. But then the matches grew further apart, and the dark crept closer. And closer. And the something started moving out there in the shadows. With a siren on its head. The Empty Inn, while showcasing some neat pixelated creepiness, brings more humor to its horror than you might expect from its screenshots. For anyone looking for a lighter game to enter into the genre, you've found it.
