There will be plenty of suspense when players arrive back in Dowerton in Jonathan Boakes' highly anticipated Dark Fall: Lost Souls, but there will be no suspense about whether the game will find a publisher quickly, as Iceberg Interactive announced today that it will be releasing the game throughout Europe later this year.
The third installment of the Dark Fall series sends gamers back to the haunted train station and hotel first seen in the original Dark Fall: The Journal. Time has passed since your first adventure, and has not been kind to the buildings, so you must "watch your step, and never turn your back on the darkness...for something hides there; Something evil, unknowable and hungry. The dead of Dowerton are the least of your problems, as you are stalked from one derelict room to the next, by the Dark Fall itself. It wants your soul; to feed upon, devour and torture. You must make the ghosts of the hotel your ally, through any means you can. For it is only through successful exorcisms that you will gain the strength to battle the darkness that lurks in that long forgotten, abandoned place."
The slight downside to today's announcement is that the projected release date of Lost Souls has slipped a little, as the game is now being targeted for a Halloween release. In the meantime, be sure to check out the Dark Fall website, and stay tuned for an upcoming comprehensive interview with Jonathan Boakes right here at Adventure Gamers.
