Creepy old-school adventure

If you're a follower of classic Lovecraftian horror games like the Lurking Horror or Lighthouse: The Dark Being, then this old-school throwback will be right up your alley. It's a gloriously eight-bit styled point-and-click adventure which is reminiscent of things like Maniac Mansion and which provides a gripping and atmospheric experience. The story here sees you in the shoes of a Victorian gentleman who receives a letter from an old-school chum which hides a mysterious message. He travels to a creepy old mansion where he learns a long buried secret from his past and opens a door which should never have been opened. What follows is a spooky adventure full of the occult and otherworldly horror. The gameplay takes the form of a point-and-click adventure where you explore various environments, solving puzzles and unraveling the mystery of what's going on. The whole thing is split into four episodes which are collected together here, while this Collector's Edition also includes new locations, puzzles, stories and other elements. Although the old-school looks might put off some people, to do so would be a great mistake. The graphics are still full of personality despite their pixel style, and create a great sense of atmosphere. The story is genuinely intriguing, with lots of creepy twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end. The interface is simple to pick up and the puzzles are clever and enjoyable to solve, so overall, if you're looking for a satisfying horror experience, you could do worse than try this.
