Mmmm loads of fun, scary, not too difficult but certainly a lights out game!! Have taken to getting up at 4am so I get some quiet gaming time, whilst it is still dark!! Non-linear but there are triggers to certain events.

Play, enjoy and continue the adventure!!!!

I just started Barrow Hill and I love this game. It is spooky and when walking around you never know what you may bump into. It is a game that keeps you to play more each time. I too find that I was up to wee hours in the morning playing this game. I jumped a couple times into this game I knew it would then for some reason you tend to forget then your heart gets to pounding. If you like mysteries this is it. thumbsup

It's very well done, isn't it? I've been playing it in the dark with my headphones on. Not that far into it yet, but already jumped out of my chair... praise

I too played the game in the early hours. There must be something about the story that inspires nocturnal adventuring.

I think so too, for those of you who play the game again --- don't be so sure that some of the clues will remain the same. ---- They won't. Well done, Mr Clark.

Hi all,

It's lovely to follow your routes through the game, and the progress so far. I thought I'd pop by to let you know that the website will be re-launching on Monday (24th) and will feature a lot of new extras, including an interactive map of the 'real' Barrow Hill, a full demo and gameplay trailer. Along with some other goodies, and fun oddments.

Thanks,

Matt

Hi JB,

Yes, this is an indie game. You can order it from Matt's website here . I think you will have to wait until Monday to be able to order it though. It's a great game!

Steph smile
