Raise the Dead at Cloud

We’re not going to paraphase this at all, the description from Cloud excites us enough:

“Explore horrific areas. Delve into the depths of your own humanity. A labyrinth of fear and chaos awaits to be traversed. Beyond, in your despair, a graveyard masks other terrors. Is the mad scientist hiding there? An evil gift may be in his hands. Special drinks and more wait to be discovered.”
