Arkham Private Investigator, Arthur Lester, wakes up with no memory of who he is, with a strange, eerie voice guiding him through the darkness. Blind, terrified, and confused, his journey begins with a series of mysteries in the hopes of understanding what has happened.

As cosmic horrors begin to seep into the world around, Arthur must ask himself whether this creature truly wants to help him or are its intentions more… Malevolent?

Guided by the Voice.

Excellent narration, made even more enjoyable by respective skin effects. The story is dark, a little car fetched but very intriguing.


Very vivid and entrancing!

Got to love the Lovecraft


Great, very good sound and the story is immersive, I’m going for the second chapter


This is such an amazing story i am hooked

Very interesting narrative perspective. Let’s see where this is going. Get it? “See” where this is going? Haha

so far amazing!! can wait to catch up!

This is awesome.

Well written, amazingly acted, great soundscape!

Like a horror/mystery radio play. The main character’s condition is perfect for the format and can really pull the listener in. The sometimes subtle background sounds are amazingly woven for each scene. The actors at Soundbooth Theatre are always top notch, and this work is no exception.

Great 👍



it doesn’t quite feel like horror but it makes me curious about more. I am definitely hooked to the story.
