I've stumbled accross some rare background information on the Chinese Room's site.
It explains what Pinchbeck was thinking when he wrote the script for Dear Esther and it's some pretty interesting, in depth insight that really benefit the wiki and help people understand the story, however, I'm unsure as to how we can impliment his notes on parts of the script onto our current transcript.

- I've added things over …
