The premise of the episode is simple: When Bob looks outside, he sees a monster. When anyone else looks, they see nothing at all. Its origins are simple, too. Speaking to Marc Scott Zicree for the invaluable book The Twilight Zone Companion, writer Richard Matheson said, “I was on an airplane. I looked out the window and said, ‘Jeez, what if I saw a guy out there?’”

- How a Classic Twilight Zone Episode Became a Recurring 'Nightmare'

This jam is for tabletop games about fucked up guys that look at you. It's inspired by horror series on YouTube like Marble Hornets, EverymanHYBRID, and I Am Sophie; creepypasta monsters like The Rake and Zalgo, and pretty much any horror movie featuring a shadowy entity that likes to stand in corners and be pants-shittingly scary just by standing there looking at you. That isn't to say that your game has to be scary, though - it can be as lighthearted, goofy, or irreverent as you want it to be, as long as it somehow includes a fucked up guy who looks at you.
