    Very interesting! I tried the official Night Journey site, but Google say it has been suspended. Does anyone know if the game was ever released? There is an intriguing video on YouTube…

    The Viola piece I really want to see, tho, is Catherine’s Room:

    Hey Peter! I mailed the people of the Night Journey because I didn’t find release info either. I am still awaiting a reply.
