Another helping of archaeological adventuring from the fellas behind Barrow Hill.


London, England, June 9th 2009

Shadow Tor Studios announce the production of their second horror/adventure, Bracken Tor: The Time of Tooth And Claw. To coincide with the announcement, the British game development studio has also launched the official website, which features four brand new screenshots, from the title, as well as details of the plot and the real-life inspiration behind the game.

Screenshots and Info:

"More and more hikers, park rangers and explorers are seeing unexplainable creatures, in the landscape. No-one knows where they come from, why they are here and where they go. For unlike sightings of big cats, and others carnivores, the lesser known moorland beasts seem to vanish, into thin air, after they have been sighted" says game author, Matt Clark, "I've often found wild animals, ripped to ribbons, in the forests of Cornwall, and seen inexplicable scratch marks on standing stones and other ancient monuments.

Bracken Tor will explore several possible theories behind the strange occurrences".
