À propos du jeu

Il y a plusieurs années, l’Inspecteur n’a pu résoudre le mystère de la disparition d’Amy Haven et a été accusé de falsification de preuves, ce qui a permis à M. Bones, le kidnappeur présumé, d’être relâché. L’heure de la retraite ayant sonné, l’Inspecteur est de retour à Dowerton, pour tenter d’élucider le mystère de la disparition de la petite Amy...

Autrefois petit village calme et pittoresque, caché dans la campagne anglaise, Dowerton a été contaminé par la modernité et la faillite économique. Des jeunes gens blafards se cachent dans la pénombre, perdant l'esprit dans le dépôt de produits chimiques, tandis que d'autres disparaissent à jamais dans les bois. Les anciens du village restent terrés chez eux, bien trop conscients des ténèbres qui rôdent à l'extérieur. Jadis, la sublime Gare Ferroviaire était le coeur de la communauté mais aujourd'hui, seuls les plus courageux, ou les plus stupides, s'en approchent tandis qu'elle tombe
chaque jour un peu plus dans l'abandon. L'hôtel victorien,attenant à la gare, autrefois véritable havre de paix pour les voyageurs fatigués et les amants adultères, est désormais en ruines. Qu'est-il arrivé à Dowerton ?

L’Inspecteur revient dernière fois dans l'ancien hôtel de Dowerton afin d’y découvrir un terrible secret… Parviendrez-vous à l’aider à éclaircir ce mystère ? Ne tournez jamais le dos dans l'obscurité, au risque qu’une chose diabolique, indéfinissable et affamée ne se jette sur vous ! Son seul désir est de s’emparer de votre âme pour la dévorer et la torturer. Parviendrez-vous à lutter contre les ténèbres de cet endroit tombé dans l'oubli ?

Caractéristiques :

  • Explorez une gare et un hôtel délabrés, laissés à l'abandon depuis la Seconde Guerre mondiale.
  • Un nouveau moteur de jeu permet une exploration totale et une entière liberté de mouvement.
  • Communiquez physiquement avec le cadre angoissant pour véritablement « ressentir » l'endroit.
  • Utilisez la lumière en tant qu'arme et alliée pour combattre les ténèbres.
  • Un environnement musical obsédant et donnant la chair de poule pour frissonner et horrifier.
  • Explorez les souvenirs des défunts, dans leurs propres cauchemars.
  • Découvrez la véritable identité de Dark Fall et le pouvoir qui se cache derrière.

Genre: Point and Click Adventure

Back in the day when adventure gaming was king, I resented the FPS for slowly and systematically killing off the genre that helped define my childhood (Sierra and LucasArts adventure games were amongst my favorite back then) but if this is the sorry state of point and click adventure gaming today then pass me the club whilst I bash its head in.

Whilst I don't play much point and click adventures these days having somewhat moved passed them (although I still do love a good one when it comes around), Dark Fall: Lost Souls has got to rank as one of the worst I have played. This ghost story is something I would expect to have read out to me in some classroom by some over enthusiastic grade scholar with aspiring dreams to be the next Stephen King - except when you hear the story you realize in your heart of hearts that it's never going to happen. You play the game as an Inspector who is trying to solve the case of a young missing girl. Having tampered with the evidence to get a certain suspect convicted you find yourself out of work and desperate to solve the actual case and redeem yourself. Your investigations begin to uncover some paranormal connection and things begin to take a decidedly darker turn.

Graphically the game is serviceable but the voice acting is so ear-splittingly awful I wanted to vomit every time the inspector opened his mouth to say something. This is one game you'll be wiser to just turn the volume right down. I got this on one of the sales so I don't feel cheated as I think I paid $2 but I wouldn't seriously think about going any higher than that price wise unless you are in it just for the laughs because if this was supposed to be scary or chilling or even clever it missed the mark completely.

I played this game before the other two and I loved it...so I bought those and will be playing this again. This game is a nonlinear horror that had me tense all the time and scared a lot of the time. Though the game is nonlinear, there are some things that need done before you can move on. Sometimes, what needs to be done is not obvious so you pretty much have to go around and try different things until you can move on. There is a quite wonderful guide on Steam (I'm sorry I don't remember the name of the one who made it, but qudos to you). This is definately not a game for children. The game has two endings and several very interesting easter eggs about hauntings and weird happenings around the area of the game. I really liked that and looked to collect them all. Some of the mechanics of the game are a little hard to work with (like moving things), but keep trying and some of the puzzles (like "conversations with...") were downright frustrating. All in all, even though I needed some help, I had a great time. Thanks to the devs and all for a great scare, and another and another....

what can I say? the game has a very good and scary atmosphere, and this is what made me to decide to give thumb up.
voice acing is poor and the gameplay is not so funny (i endd myself sometimes bored) but visuals and the overall atmosphere is very very very well conceived.
so thumb up, consider buying only if you find this game under 5€

A bit of a 'meh' game, really. If Steam had the option for a middle spot between recommend and don't recommend, I'd choose it. It had its moments, some of the puzzles were good and much of the story was okay as well, but nothing really shone. Some confusing UI. Some horrible voice acting (and some okay). Some cheesy horror aspects. No ability to skip repetitive dialog or animations. Quite linear, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but there are some obtuse prerequisites to move the story along at times. For instance, you're in a room, do everything you can...and move on. Explore some other area, do all you can...then get stuck. Well if you then go back to the first area, something will have changed for some reason...triggered by something else you did but for no apparent reason.

But overall, it just didn't grip me enough to make me want to work through things...or I would just assume something illogical was going on even if in the end it just might have just taken a little more scrutiny...but time I didn't feel like spending on it.

In the end, it was good enough that I at least was willing to finish it. I got it on a 75% Steam sale, so I can't complain. If you like horror/spooky and maybe have an interest in the occult, it might grip you more than it did me and you can overlook some of its flaws.

Excellent and challenging old school adventure game. Though the sound effects and the vocals are not very good, the atmosphere is rather creepy. The gameplay is very simple: point and click in order to use items, solve riddles or do some chatting with ghosts. The riddles are not very easy and sometimes you might need a little help. To sum up i'd say that iits a great value for money, and a must for all the fans of horror adventure games.

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.
