Here is the final chapter in our graphic exploration of “Escape from Spring Hill Farm and Tallgrass Prairie“… In Part 1, we awoke in a cellar full of meat. In Part 2, we squeezed through a grate in the cellar to emerge from a small door below the stairs, only to run out the front door into the unknown as we heard shuffling footsteps approaching. What future awaits us in:

Part 3: Caught

As you dash out the front door, the hinges glow brighter and become immobile. You can neither open nor close the door now, it hangs like an open mouth alerting those upstairs to your presence. You notice a humanoid form in the distance. It turns to stare at you; its head rotates 180 degrees to peer at you over its back. Something about it seems unnervingly familiar as you recognize The Scarecrow!

You freeze in place like a deer caught in headlights. The Scarecrow stares ominously. It locks eyes with yours and you feel faint and far away.

The Scarecrow locks eyes with you
The Scarecrow… staring…

You black out, only to reawaken in the cellar among the canning jars with no recollection of your previous escape attempt. A pervasive sense of dread fills the air like rotting flesh for all that you cannot actually smell anything…
