PARIS - Jan. 25, 2010 - Exploring human consciousness has never been easier or more affordable than with Winter Voices, the evocative and chilling role-playing game (RPG) from independent game developer Beyondthepillars. Beyondthepillars is now offering the first three episodes of Winter Voices as part of a bundle, exclusively available at the game's official website. The Winter Voices bundle, which is $12.00 on PC and Mac, includes three episodes of turn-based psychic role playing: Prologue: Avalanche, Episode One: Those who have no name and Episode Two: Nowhere of me.
