Welcome to Paradise…Round 2

In case you missed it, last month we received a very ominous and unsettling postcard depicting hula girls dancing with the message “Welcome to Paradise” on the front. On the back, a very different message from “paradise” was written and left me with an uneasy but intrigued feeling.

Well gamers, apparently round 2 has been sent out and we have pictures below. Check them out and see if you can guess what game this is trying to promote….Interesting to say the least… My bet is on Dementium 2?
