HALLOWEEN - Week-day Special
At the start of play, Halloween has just come and gone, with the town folk looking forward to Bonfire Night on the 5th of November (big bonfire on the beach and fireworks!). The Harvest Moon has waned, but there is an air of expectation.
A spooky screenshot of Nigel Denvers in The Last Crown: Blackenrock (announcement of the release date soon to be announced.) I want this game! I want it! Come on, Jonathan Boakes, we’ve been waiting for ages, please give it to us!
I always thought that The Lost Crown was highly overhyped. I always believed that Boakes makes better, more thrilling atmosphere with his 1st person games, like the Darkfall series…
I miss the Lost Crown though…Its smart riddles and the images similar to the one Karlok posted….I have to replay it someday soon…
Boakes is not very good at telling a coherent story that makes sense, but the atmosphere and locations of his games are excellent.
I think The Lost Crown is his best game so far, and simply one of the best adventures of the past decade. Dark Fall series were getting worse with every new game, repeating one tired concept. TLC offered something new and fresh. To me it was that unreleased Gabriel Knight 4 everyone is expecting - at least it was very inspired by Jensen’s works. But it seems like the sequel will take just as much time to develop as GK4.
PC means personal computer
That’s a beautiful screenshot! I especially like the foliage detail and the birds in the background. Again, it’s very fitting for Halloween week.
