Where is the voice?

Nice game, really! But why didn't you voice object descriptions and such like in the Blackwell series? This is somehow truly harming the atmosphere.

In the Blackwell games, the characters themselves are the ones describing things, and so are voiced.

I made the decision to go with a 2nd person text only narrator, both because I often find narrator voices to be awfully done, and because the sheer amount of text in the game would have bloated the file size considerably to have it all recorded.

Well, okay, I understand. But I personally would still appreciate voiced texts. Why don't you let the protagonist read the information? Is the file size really that important nowadays?
