Haarlem, The Netherlands – 25 November 2009 – Leading videogame publisher Iceberg Interactive is proud to announce that Darkling Room’s newest and highly anticipated PC adventure game Dark Fall: Lost Souls has gone Gold!
Darkling Room's creator of the game Jonathan Boakes said: "Gold! Lost Souls, the third Dark Fall game, has finally 'gone gold', which means it is ready for stores. This last stage seems to have taken quite a bit of time, to finalize, but with a new OS (Windows 7), it is always best to test, test and test some more. The extra time has allowed for me to tweak a few elements, as well as augment others (a lot more scary sounds!). It means I have been spending quite a lot of time, inside The Station Hotel, exploring the darkest world I am likely to create. If my previous game, The Lost Crown, boasted "the most 'realistic' ghost-hunting adventure", then Lost Souls will definitely be the creepiest adventure. Don't play it alone, or at night, and NEVER play it in the dark. The Dark Fall is waiting... your hotel room awaits. I can't guarantee rest and relaxation, but I can promise you'll have nightmares."
Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder said: “We are extremely pleased that Dark Fall: Lost Souls has now reached gold status. I think it stands a good chance of becoming the most scary game of the year. The boxed version will be available a little later than planned at December 11th 2009 in the UK, various European countries that use English boxed versions and in the Iceberg webshop (free shipping on pre-order now). We will endeavor to assure that the electronic download version will be available by December 4th on various portals to be disclosed.”
Iceberg Interactive also releases 6 new screenshots from the game with this pressrelease, including a short description of them by Jonathan Boakes. They can be downloaded via THIS LINK.
About Lost Souls
The dead are waiting. They have stories to tell. Tales of darkness, loneliness and despair. Be careful you do not join them, as it could be an eternity until the next curious visitor opens that old, rotten door, to find you within. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. What tale would you tell? Would you know how to explain what happened, that dark night when your curiosity got the better of you? Would you be able to speak its name... the ancient name... or would you simply warn the new arrival to beware... to beware the Dark Fall.
