Storyline seems kind of similar to Edna and Harvey.

Yes! I've been waiting for this release since the Indie GoGo campaign. I love the art and the Stephen King + Tim Burton style. Weird to see it in 5 separated apps tough. A single app with chapters to unlock with IAPs, like Valiant Hearts, would make more sense.

Is there a bundle to buy all 5 chapters with a discount?

How long is each chapter?

You're reading my mind. Thought the exact same thing.

Been waiting so long for this. So glad it's finally here! Such a creepy game. Loving it! Just wish it took up more space on my iPad screen. Feels like a waste of space. It also crashed after the first bit, but has been stable since. So hopefully that was just a one-time thing.

Nope, no iCloud. Separate games on each.

Finished chapter 1 in about 20 minutes. Pretty average game, nothing special.
