I had to replay Barrow Hill as well and I still got that sense of something lurking in the shadows, watching me! Really liked Emma, would've loved to talk to her more and it definetly got me curious about the old British legends.

Hi Mystery Lover, try the Barrow hill web site, it will give you the present area and links to local legends. If you come to Britian why not visit as you will get a warm welcome. We even have an American and a Canadian living here and loving ever minute wave

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)
Hi everyone.

Agree completely on Barrow Hill. Scary, quality, gaming for grown-ups. In terms of pure playability, it seemed like the game my partner and I were waiting for. Moreover from our POV, that game was the tipping-point for the formation of the company I work for, Arberth Studios, and playing it kicked off development of our current project in a similar genre. So we owe Barrow Hill a debt of gratitude.

Cheers

Noel

Good luck with it, btw!

Hi catbelly smile Totally agree with you about Barrow Hill! It's one of my favorite games ever.

Noel, thanks so much for posting about your game. The screenshots look wonderful & the story fascinating. And the sound clips for how to pronounce the Welsh names are great! Just added myself to your mailing list. laugh

The location was to confined. I was totally bored with the game.
Also I have no sense of direction when I am in wooded areas and I seem to always go around in circles. lol
