GOG release: “Dark Fall: Ghost Vigil”

Darkling Room‘s horror adventure game Dark Fall: Ghost Vigil is now scarily effective on GOG.

It seems that ghost stories and paranormal events with a found footage vibe are still used in games, even though movies have more or less abandoned the concept after the Paranormal Activity series has run out of favor with the audience. While some games, like Outlast II, are more visceral and use body horror in a gruesome fashion, more subtle approaches can still work, as the newest entry of Jonathan Boakes’ Dark Fall series proves.

Dark Fall: Ghost Vigil takes place in the Harwood House where a group of investigators (calling themselves the OPG, the Oxford Paranormal Group) try to solve the mystery of the haunted building at night. As all sorts of cameras have been set up in the vicinity, the horror can naturally come from different places. Of course one doesn’t sit idly by, but explores the rooms with ghost hunting equipment. Staying in contact with the group with text messages and walkie talkies seems to take away some of the isolation, but there’s plenty going on thanks to the creepy sound design. Considering how effective some classic paranormal investigation movies are, like The Conjuring 1+2, this might just be what the horror adventure genre needs.

Dark Fall: Ghost Vigil was released in January this year and is now available DRM-free on GOG with a 10% launch discount that lasts until March 4, 2020, at 2 PM UTC.
