Which one was better? No spoilers about Marcy please.

Also, does Marcy have a better rounded up story than Asylum? Does it clear things up that were left open in Asylum? (Answer with only yes and no please. )

Your first question wasn't answerable with yes or no.

Your second question: Yes, it has a better rounded up story than Asylum.
In Asylum, you're not really given a mission, simply:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Fix the temporaul fault

In Marcy, you ACTUALLY get information, which is:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Find Marcy, she looks like this: *picture*


The whole story is better explained and the characters around you seem to talk more instead of some weird nutjobs.

It also adds new elements to the table, which I won't spoil.

Was it better? Perhaps. Both scenarios had some elements that the other one was lacking. But, both are great. I think my group enjoyed Marcy better. But only, ONLY, because we knew what to expect from the game itself. How it works and stuff.

Sounds good! Was the overall playtime comparable?

I liked Asylum slightly more. Theme of neither appealed to me, but Marcy less so. Can't wait for themes I like, because I love the game.

Asylum. Marcy introduced more mechanics. That said I wish they would put in a small "tutorial" scenario for teaching the game.
