Hi everyone. I just finished Barrow Hill and I'm just sitting here feeling like "wow" as I stare at my monitor. This game was SO good and I'm just stunned by it. For one thing it scared the heck out of me and I felt this constant sense of urgency as I played, like either that sentry-thing was going to get ME or Emma. Either way, I was feeling almost frantic and it was really awesome! (scary but awesome! lol)

The sounds and the music were just creepy as h*ll and they really added to that sense of this whole experience being "real". Amazing.

I'm going to have to write to the guys who did the game (and the one who did the sounds and music) and let them know just what a wonderful job they all did with this game. Whew!

I just had to write and let everyone know who hasn't played this yet that it's terrific and should be played now, instantly! LOL LOL

PS Thank you to MaG for the wonderful walkthrough---I never would've gotten through this without it! smile

Cat, feeling shaky and tired and a bit hungry but also feeling that wonderful satisfaction that comes with finishing a great game. smile

I agree, Cat. How about that crow?

This game is a wonderfully done game by Matt with collaboration with Jonathan.

We are awaiting more games from Matt and Jonathan.

Check here for the sounds-music done by Jan Kavan.

Jan is making his own game too - check here and music.

Glad to be of help, Cat.

Hi Cat
Just a little question, when you were exploring the area around the church ruins (swamp near the radio caravan)did you or anyone else notice a man's face imprinted on one of the stone walls?, am dying to know who this is, looks like a younger version of Jonathan. think

I noticed that face too, but have no idea who it is. I spotted several "faces in the walls" during the game, but that was the most photo-like one.

I replayed Barrow Hill recently and thought I'd be ready for that crow. But no, it got me again. lol

I haven't played a game that I've enjoyed as much as that one in a long time. The whole feeling of the game was great. thumbsup Didnt have to use a hint the whole game.Really liked the ending with the radio person fading out saying so long. Nice touch. Dunn. Glad you had a good experience,thats a well done game when that happens.

I guess I am in the minority here. I hated the game. I sold it as soon as I was finished with it.
