Informace o hře

Some say the old train station and hotel are a 'haunted hotspot', hidden away in the woods, forgotten by some, feared by others. The old hallways and train platforms echo with the ghosts of many eras, all trapped within the very fabric of the place, each hoping for salvation. The dusty old rooms seem possessed, exhibiting 'time slips' as the past becomes the present. You must tread very carefully, or you too many join the Lost Souls forever. So, why are you here?

Amy Haven went missing 5 Years ago. On the anniversary of the child's disappearance you, the Police Inspector who failed to find her, has returned to the Train Station and Hotel one last time. As you attempt to solve the mystery of Amy's disappearance you must face the horrors of your past. Someone, or something, does not want you to solve the mystery, that much is clear. Never turn your back on the darkness....for something hides there; something evil, unknowable and hungry.

Key features:

  • A stand-alone Dark Fall horror adventure.
  • Explore a derelict train station & hotel, abandoned since World War 2.
  • Experience 'timeslips' as the past becomes the present.
  • Communicate with ghosts, the Lost Souls, and attempt to free them from purgatory.
  • A hauntingly creepy score, to chill, alarm and horrify.
  • Explore the memories of the dead, in their own ‘nightmares’.
  • Discover the true identity, and power behind, the Dark Fall itself.
  • Play twisted 'Party Games' including Blind Man's Buff and Statues.
  • Solve a modern urban mystery, 'What Happened To Amy Haven?'
  • Use a Ouijaboard to meet and communicate with ghosts.
  • Survive the night in a realistic, abandoned location full of danger!

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you fused Dark Fall and Silent Hill together? I'll tell you what happens: you get Lost Souls, the creepiest game by far in the Dark Fall series. What a game. What a finish.

Where do I even begin, since it's all great? I love the look of this game. You can tell Jonathan Boakes definitely had a bigger budget to play with since this game moves away from the Myst like feel, and more towards 360 degree surroundings, in which your character turns, sweeping the surroundings around him, instead of slide images. Time has not been kind to the Dowerton Station and Hotel. In Dark Fall 1, the train station is unsettling, but still just an empty, abandoned train station. In DF: LS, Dowerton has turned into a hell hole - a place where vandalism, illicit activity, and even satanic activity have become commonplace. The train station and hotel is beautifully rendered, yet is visually disturbing. This game does not bank on jump scares, though I was suprised a couple times. The scares come from knowing that you are exploring an evil place.

The story is fairly simple and very reminiscent of a Silent Hill kind of story. You are an Inspector who failed to apprehend the kidnapper/murderer of a young girl named Amy. She was last seen at the train station. Your guilt and shame lead you to return to the station and hopefully find her and bring about closure. As you explore, you meet other ghosts who for some reason or other are also trapped in the hotel. Because you are such a nice inspector, you help these lost souls find their way so they can move on. Each ghost you help gives you a key that will be useful. What I love about this section is that you are able to jump back in time to 1947, seeing the hotel at its peak. It makes returning to the present all the more horrifying as you see the decay of the place.

Just like the previous Dark Fall games, the use of sound is great. With visuals and sound creating an eerie, disturbing world, this is a game that would definitely be one to play in the dark with a good set of headphones.

So, good basic story, good visuals and sound, what about the puzzles? They are by far the easiest puzzles in the Dark Fall series. Yes, you will still read a lot and you will need to take notes, but I feel that the puzzles are a lot more intuitive than the previous games. There are three floors to the Hotel, and each one serves as a kind of level. The Train Station itself serves as a level. Within each level, there are puzzles that are meant for just that area. To me, that makes this game a lot easier, unlike Dark Fall: The Journal where you just jump in and have no idea what the first objective is.

Speaking of learning objectives, your character has a cell phone! Throughout the game, you will receive texts that will give hints to where you should go, and the next mission. It will also serve as filling in parts of the story.

This game was a fitting conclusion to the Dark Fall series. I enjoyed revisiting the Dowerton Station and Hotel. It has really made me curious and excited to look at other games made by Jonathan Boakes. If you like ghost stories, you owe it to yourself to try the Dark Fall series.

Dark Fall, Lost Souls is the third game in the Dark Fall series by Jonathan Boakes of Darkling Room. It is not necessary to have played the earlier games (The Journal, Lights Out) but I'm sure that once you've played Lost Souls you will want to see what else Darkling Room has to offer. This game is creepy as all hell!

You play as The Inspector - an ex police inspector who, several years before, investigated the disappearance of a young girl called Amy in the town of Dowerton. She was never found. You are back at Dowerton Railway Station and the Station Hotel, which are now in total disrepair due to them being abandoned shortly after Amy's disappearance. It is bonfire night and fireworks light up the sky above the eerie night-time setting. It soon becomes clear that some bad things have happened here. There are many lost souls - some good, some evil, lurking in the shadows. Some want to harm you but others need your help. You will be transported to times past in order to understand all the events that have taken place and to finally find your own fate. This is no ordinary place though. Jonathan Boakes, the creator, has surpassed himself in creating a world which is familiar enough to make you feel at home, yet weird enough to make it a very unsettling and scary place indeed.

I cannot praise Lost Souls enough. The graphics, navigation, music, sound effects, gameplay, puzzles - all are of an excellent quality and take 'point and click' adventures on to a whole new level.

First off, only get this game on sale. Even though I recommend it, I don't for $13. It's more of a under $5 game. Also if you are looking for a really creepy game that keeps you on your toes, and/or have balls of steel, then this game might not be for you. This game has a few good jump scares but for the most part you end up losing the fear until the jump scare puts you back into it. And if you are pretty comfy with most horror games then the jump scares will make you jump a bit then be like "Meh." Finally, if you want a 'simple' game that is easy to play, then this isn't for you either. The puzzles are hard and for most of the game me and my friend had a guide we would go to every time we couldn't figure what to do.

With all the said, Me and my friend enjoyed the game. The surroundings were spooking, the story was interesting. Hell the main reason we didn't want to stop was because we wanted to figure things out. Why was he there? What were those statue? The Voice acting is pretty bad though, I remember asking my friend if they just pulled some guy off the coding crew to voice the main character. I think that might be my biggest complaint, that the voice acting was horrible. It really pulled you out of the game whenever they spoke, especially the main character. But I've dealt with worse.

If you are easily creeped out and good at puzzle games, I recommend the game. If you are more into being chased and always having to be on your toes, then maybe you should go look somewhere else.

Definitely if you like point and click adventure puzzle games, this is a great title to get. It's pretty spooky and has a fairly interesting storyline. Happy to have played this for sure
