I was just reading the adventure companies newsletter and it has a very "weird" scared story concerning how they are packaging the game.
This is one of the quotes from the article:

It seems "things" are happening to Dark Fall: Lights Out Photoshop files. There seems to be an 'extra' designer on this project. "We just shrug our shoulders and accept it. We always change it back to what we had before but "someone" has their own ideas of how the packaging should look", ...

From what I read, it seems that overnight the photoshop has a different design than the editors placed on and the text is different..spooky?

Wonder what Jonathan would say about all of this?

Hmm, ,I thought supernatural activity had been a bit quiet (here at Dark Fall Mansions) of late. This explains what the spooks have been up too! I think The Adventure Company may need the services of Polly White, or one of the other intrepid ghost hunters.

Don't know Tig, didn't think that way when I read it;

what happens when it comes home? happydance
I'm going to be dumb here, who is Polly White?
Is this some one I should have remembered or know about? See, already the gremlins are lurking about, just talking about the game rotfl

I too thought that the phantom marketing gimmick may have been at work, when I read the TAC newsletter, until I started thinking back to the cover image.

I produced the image of the lighthouse, specially, for the packaging. That was a few months ago.

As the software created the image I noticed strange forms appearing within the bitmap, from a screaming face, to a bat like creature amongst the clouds.

Here is an example, from the waves:




Very odd.

Don't have nightmares.

I'll be happy to sacrifice myself and try a copy today before others start having weird experiences because all the strange hauntings surrounding production. I don't normally take such risky chances but in order to save my fellow boomers I'll step up to the plate!

I just don't buy this game, that's for sure. There are many more demons outside who can influence people than you can imagine. It's very popular to put them in a game, but it is also very dangerous. I hope, if this has nothing to do with marketing, that nobody gets hurt or worse

Polly White was in the first Dark Fall Game. She was a ghost hunter of sorts, as I recall -- she came prepared with lots of fancy equipment for seeing extra-sensory stuff.

Is Polly White coming back to Dark Fall Lights Out or is there a new ghost hunter that will be among us? Does she have lots of new techy stuff?
