For anyone who's out of the know: Accursed Farms is the vehicle of Ross Scott, who originally rose to modest internet fame for making Half-Life-related videos, most notably the Civil Protection and Freeman's Mind series, and now spends most of his time playing and (sort of) reviewing old, usually obscure and generally quite bizarre video games. Here's his latest video, which I believe very well illustrates his style and the kind of material he covers:

Here are some more videos of his if you want to get more acquainted. They're often quite long but trust me when I say he's good at keeping your attention.

Hell yeah, I love Ross and Accursed Farms. Like many, Freeman's Mind was my introduction and I've since loved Civil Protection and his classic game review series. I'm hoping to see some new projects from him in the future, something akin to CP or FM.

Ah, Ross Scott...I love that man especially with his witty sardonic voice-acting in Freeman's Mind. I actually subscribed to him a while back and suffice to say there isn't a dull moment in his commentary on various games.

It doesn't say anywhere that it's an April Fools joke, so I think it's legit. The joke could be that there is no joke. Or maybe, there was no joke to begin with.

If this turns out to be the truth, I truly hope that he's not just doing this out of some sense of obligation to his fans. He seemed hellbent on finishing the movie he's been working on for years first, so it'd be sad if he'd have to delay that even further.

Oh boy, I'm glad he's gonna go ahead and do Half-Life 2 for Freeman's Mind after all. I hope he's figured out some kind of schedule so it doesn't disturb his work on THE MOVIE and I'm happy as Larry for more of the series. Speaking of fun Ross videos, this is one of my favourites.

Yeah I thought it would be April Fools... but it seemed to... RIGHT to be a joke, so it was a good way to mess with us more psychologically than not. Nice to see we'll be getting it. I would like to see a little of the movie he's working on though...

His comments in the chat video seem to point to the fact that he doesn't actually have fun making Freeman's Mind 2, and that he'd rather focus on getting out more Game Dungeon, but that the demand for it is high enough that he believes it's the right thing to do for the fans. So, as a result, Game Dungeon will be less frequent, but we will also be getting Freeman's Mind 2.

He probably still gets SOME enjoyment out of it, otherwise he wouldn't do it at all. Ross has never struck me as the kind of person who would willingly pander to his audience at the expense of his own investment in a project. I've been following his work for years, and as far as I can tell, he's always done things his way. If it was a cynical, done-for-the-sake-of-it thing for the benefit of fans, he wouldn't have waited 2 years to make episode 1. I'm confident his heart is in it.

Judging by what he said, I imagine that the writing process is a lot of fun and that the recording process is incredibly tedious. I hope the former compensates sufficiently for the latter.

I have a fairly high tolerance for bullshit filler and other nonsense as long as I feel like I'm going to be rewarded for my patience in the end, so that actually looks like something I might play, although the bland voice acting and uncanny valley-character models aren't exactly winning me over.
