Okay man I am knee-deep in the sewers DEEP man. Somehow I managed to get all the way to the bonfire without dying once – all the way past the crazy butcher, past the giant rat at which I took no chances, past the pitfall that led me to a room surrounded by poison gas frogs with half my heath chopped off, and through the labyrinth without so much as getting poisoned. This was after going into the garden and killing the butterfly.

After all this I still somehow feel that I’m only in this game’s equivalent of Act 1.
