The Silver Lining (King’s Quest Remake)

The Cave

Dark Fall series

I came across Dark Fall: The Journal for the first time I was basically still a kid and the game scared me stiff. Too terrified to play it alone, I asked my brother for moral support and we were trying to get through Dark Fall together. To no avail though. After hearing a creepy sound of a crying woman behind my back, I stuttered  “n-nope” and gave up. Many years later I’ve returned to this production and I don’t regret it one bit. The game starts with a message on an answering machine from the protagonist’s brother. He begs us to come to the old Doverton train station in Dorset where he was in charge of some redevelopment work. The man sounds genuinely frightened, so we don’t waste any time and go there immediately only to find the decrepit and abandoned train station notorious for people’s disappearance. Our task is obviously to find out what happened to our brother and a few ghosts can become our unlikely allies in that quest. As I said before, that game is truly frightening. The atmosphere is brilliant, the sounds chilling to the bone and the scares are very subtle but can give you nightmares for months to come. Just play it for yourself along with Dark Fall II: Lights Out and Dark Fall: Lost Souls.
