Since I heard about this game, I've been deeply into it.

However, am I the only one to be somewhat befuddled by the names of many of the monsters? They're evocative, sure, but they're not very grammatically correct, amd illogical, too. Why would a group of scientists call an unknown creature "substance"? Bathophobia? Blind?

I mean, they're cool, but they seem like they're all missing a word or two.

Literally my only complaint.

The better question is do the monsters actually exist?

Do they not at all, or do they only exist in the minds of the characters? To me they tend to be very harmful and dangerous hallucinations. Not physical but so dangerous that they may as well be.

This all leads to the theme that none of the monsters are "named" but rather are labeled only by the psychological and hallucinogenic elements in your mind.

Hm. I can dig that. Especially for the more abstract ones.
