Returning from work you listen to a frightened and cryptic voice message from your brother, a talented architect redeveloping the old Dowerton station in Dorset, England. Boarding a train to meet him, you travel to Dowerton alone, wondering what adventure you may be embarking on...
When you arrive, the train is empty and the station is deserted. You begin to explore - the train tunnels, the station, the adjoining hotel, and the grounds - and discover that although no one is there, you are not alone. Finding artifacts, ancient documents and a valuable journal, you realize that the area holds a history of disappearances and hauntings dating back centuries. [DreamCatcher Interactive]… Expand
JeffT.Sep 7, 2003Beautifully woven narrative, evocative sound and atmosphere combine to make this a true adventure gamers feast. Made by ONE person, pure genius.
BradG.Apr 20, 2005Really... well... lame. Sorry, but this is nothing but a jumble of good ideas wrapped into laughingly lame package. I love a good avdenture game but this is not it. The sound is the real let down. The lack of consistant ambient effects and the harsh cutoffs at the end of each "creepy" sound bit are a joke. The imaginative environments are destroyed by grainy 640x480 renders and the whole mess starts to get really repeditive. The voice acting is solid and the puzzles are quite unique but neither make this game enjoyable. If you want an atmospheric adventure game that will leave its mark on you, pick up Myst Uru: The Complete Chronicles. Dark Fall was made by one person and it really shows. It may have made a good freeware title in the late 90's but its honestly a joke as a "boxed and shelved" product, even at $19.99 or so.… Collapse
