The retail release of Darkness Within 2: The Dark Lineage is now only a day away, and to herald the occasion, a demo for the haunting mystery sequel has just been released.
The follow-up to 2007's In Pursuit of Loath Nolder puts players back in the shoes of the tormented Howard E. Loreid. No longer chasing a fugitive murder suspect this time around, now it's his own past that Howard is investigating, as he probes deeper and deeper, both literally and figuratively, to discover how his dark family history is connected to his current psychological affliction.
The demo does not take place at the start of the game, but rather in a (seemingly) remote abandoned building in the woods, where Howard must discover what tragic events transpired before his arrival. The 267 MB sampler can be downloaded from WorthPlaying.
