I have reached today the middle part of the game (i think). I'm done with my first visit to the museum and i must say that this game is the best i have played in months (a lot of them). I love the mystery the story and although i'm soooo scared at some points i also love the ghost haunting lol

One of the ways that I describe to my friends my affection for Adventure games is that it is like being a character in a novel that you are reading for the first time. The Lost Crown was like this for me. I very much liked my fellow characters and enjoyed being in their world. It was creepy and curious with startlingly scary moments. Clues and solutions were logical and I loved the gadgets. ('Cause I like to make things "go") I thought the use of color, and lack there of, was used brilliantly. A good story, well told, and ever-so-fun to play. yes

Hi gaily...Thanks for the reply & Thank You all

What struck my attention to posting about this game..Was not only the game play...

But I want to bring to everyones attention that we don't need blood & gore to get people scared....I was so happy to see that I was scared without all that other stuff... grin

Hi Dar,
You know you're right. shocked I hadn't even thought about it from that perspective. Implied violence, but no gore. To me that says that I am really involved with the story for that to be effective. eek Jaded person that I am. wink

I agree, Darleen. smile And there are a number of great, old scary movies that demonstrate that you don't need blood and guts to be scared. Done right, in some ways this approach (the subtle one) can be more scary. thumbsup

I have to agree with you all on the not needing gore to have a fantastically suspenseful game.

Something I noticed while playing yesterday - I can't remember where I was but I suddenly heard that weird noise that almost sounds somewhat like a spring pinging open that was peppered throughout Dark Fall: The Journal. That's not a completely accurate description of the sound - I have no idea what it is. Maybe it's just because I'm a very auditory person but I recognized it and it suddenly made the game creepier as it brought back those feelings I had of wandering alone through that deserted hotel... Very nice usage of sound!

I have just escaped from the church at night, but the character has woken up again. The church part, especially outside was very scary as I expected something to pop up right infront of the camera.
