    Default Penumbra: Overture

    Its finally here!


    Scary? Too scary =( But awfully intruiging!




    For those of you not familiar with the game its an adventure/horror survivor game from last years Tech Demo from just a couple college dudes in their basement.

    Id recommend buying the first episode as these guys really deserve it!

    looks interesting enough ... I like games that exercise a brain's right to use common sense in uncommon situations.

    Looks awesome and quite Lovecraftian.

    Darkfall is going to be an FPS, First Person Sworder, which means you're going to sword the first person you meet.

    I played the tech demo, unless they changed the playstyle I discovered something that ruins the atmos-fear.
    Spoiler
    Though they may have fixed that since then, it was just a tech demo.
    Now these points of data make a beautiful line.

    thats part of what made it so suspense. not knowing if something was going to come up around the corner, or if the sounds you heard were just in the dudes head. that and the awesome gameplay and feel of it all.

    the actual game however seems to be a bit more action oriented. if only in the slightest

    I'm sorry that I'm necroing this old thread but I did it instead of creating a new one.

    Anyway, I got the game a few hours ago and I feel something that I've never felt since the Cradle part in Theif: Deadly Shadows, fear.
    I enjoy it and I recommend it to everyone that enjoys puzzles and horror.
    Fuck you.

    And yea..I was playing last night with lights turned off alone in my house.. and I have to say, it was quite creepy.

    Requiem? I don't think it's released yet but it should be this year.
    Gonna play this through and buy Black Plague afterwards.

    Edit: and holy crap, you can really see the H.P. Lovecraft influences
    Fuck you.

    I played through Overture and Black Plague, they're actually good games with a good story, something that's pretty hard to find lately.
