I really liked it, too! If you play it alone, when it's quiet in the house, it's even better!

If you are of a squeamish disposition, Don't play at night with the lights out, it will give you nightmares!! Subtle ones, tap tap tap.....

Need I say More??

Hi smile

I AM alone and I DO play at night but I usually keep a soft light on when I'm here in my little computer den.

And after all your warnings, I now have a spare bulb for it right on the shelf above me - not two feet away lol lol

EDIT :
If I could maintain correct spellings, THAT would be helpful too wave

Mad, Agustin (Nucleosys developer) has announced they are working on a new adventure and it will be point and click. They haven't told much about the game yet, just these tidbits:

* It will be a horror first-person adventure
* It will take place in a single location, over the course of one night
* There will be several characters to interact with, as well as many others appearing in various cutscenes
* Your memories will play a very important role in this game

Agustin has promised to come forward with new information over the next few months, so we should hear from them soon!

I liked Scratches too. Can't wait to see what they come up with. One location is okay as long as they have lots of areas to explore.

I'm interested to see what the Nucleosys folks come up with! If they've solved some of the irritation factors from Scratches, it should be stellar!

I realize this is an older thread but I don't want to start a new one since this one exists.

I just finished "Scratches" about ten minutes ago and I'm STILL feeling a bit shaky. I even used a terrific walk-through for quite a bit of it and it was still a very spooky game. Not for the faint of heart. I really had to talk myself into finishing it. smile

Are you waiting for the Director's Cut? I played the original version. I won't be getting the DC as I could barely bring myself to finish the original. Such a chicken! I was in a big hurry to finish it during the daylight hours today. And after going out this evening, I just had to walk from my car back to my apartment all alone in the dark. I'll admit to a few peeks over my shoulder... lol

Let us know how you like it, Butcher.

I like your signature Celtic! And welcome to Gameboomers!
Have you played Dark Fall and The Last Half of Darkness yet? And of course Barrow Hill and Delaware... evil

Edit: Just saw on the Nancy thread that you've played half of those anyway! grin

Thanks for the welcome, Nickie. smile I must admit, I nicked my sig off of a friend from a music forum. I quite like your sig as well!

I've totally mucked up the Nancy thread. It's turned into my welcome thread! And here I am, posting unrelated stuff on the "Scratches" thread. I'm just bopping all over the place, wreaking havoc.

Haven't heard of The Last Half of Darkness. I will have to check it out. Delaware is next on my list.

Dark Fall series is my favorite so far. Can't wait for "The Lost Crown". Jonathan Boakes just amazes me. smile

Perhaps you'll be forgiven just this once. wink lol For info on Last Half of Darkness, you can click on "Independent Games" at the top of the page. It is so thrilling that you have so many great games to play!

Nickie - Thank you for your forgiveness. It is greatly appreciated. grin

Butcher - If I can finish the game, anyone can. LOL Love to know your thoughts afterwards.

Bouv - I know - I keep putting things aside that I really *should* be doing to play games. But since it was Memorial Day, I figured I could take a day to play. smile

If you do a search for Scratches here in Discussions - some time back there was a fantastic thread talking about the game and what was what, who was who, etc. etc. etc. - I think it ran about thirteen pages of dialogue and conferring among those of us who played it......see if you can find it and enjoy the read, BUT only if you have finished the game. Welcome all to this "spook house". grin
