The Netherlands, Haarlem, October 6th, 2006 - Lighthouse Interactive announced today that its PC game "Barrow Hill: Curse of the Ancient Circle" is now available in retail in the UK, Scandinavia and Benelux. Fully localized versions of the game will follow by the end of October and early November in France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Russia.
Developed by independent Cornwall-based Shadow Tor Studios, it is no surprise that Barrow Hill delves deep into the folklore of Celtic legends and ancient local myths, in this "adventure meets archaeology" point-and-click horror game. Players follow in the footsteps of famed archaeologist Conrad Morse at the ancient burial ground of Barrow Hill, after being stranded on the night of the Autumn Equinox. Morse and his team have disappeared, and while facing the same threat lurking deep in the Cornish countryside, players will discover that the barrow is more than just a mound of earth and a collection of forgotten standing stones. However, not all archaeology is constructive and some things should better be left buried and undisturbed...
