They shot ravens with ray guns in The Pit and the Pendulum, didn't they? If not, they should have...

The Pit and the Pendulum was the first story by Poe I ever read. Kinda mreh about it because you're mashing a story with a poem with a game. Yeah, I know, I'm nit-picking xp Either way, it's fun to see the throw-back to the old cartridge artwork, and I get the raven makes it a cleaner reference.

I dig what you're saying. I actually had that same thought process, but decided that an 80s side scroller needed more than just obstacles, so this is more of a collage of Poe elements.
The Pit and the Pendulum was my first Poe story, too, and it freaked me out.

XD Okay, yeah, I'd play that. Especially if there was a stage that had references to The Masque of the Red Death. Ooo, and a reference to Never Bet the Devil Your Head!

I know what you mean about the story o.o I made the mistake of choosing it for a book report of sorts in elementary school (we were studying short stories). That and the Tell Tale Heart was such nightmare fuel.
