Welcome to Ravens Hollow...


A historical adventure game, fraught with spectral enigmas is now under development -- Ravens Hollow by Hidden Sanctum.

Quote:
Independent game developer, Hidden Sanctum, after a successful release of Rune Rescue earlier this week, today announced the start of development for Ravens Hollow for the PC and Mac. Ravens Hollow is a 1st-person point-n-click horror adventure game set in historical New England during the early 1800's.

Rich in history and equally so in mystery, there are some things that are best left unspoken... The War of Independence is but a distant memory to the elders of the village as the people struggle with their feeble existence. Rumors of restless spirits, strange disappearances, and horrific suffering abound. It takes a strong soul to visit Ravens Hollow...or a very foolish one.
For early concept renders from Ravens Hollow, click here. Hmmmm. I like the name of the local brook. And why do I think something awful will happen down that well?

The game will release in late 2007.

For more information, visit the game's website.

Should I chime in with a negative comment, or leave it be? This is definitely not the game for me, sorry about that. However, at the website I clicked on ABOUT and it was quite interesting reading about how Hidden Sanctum came to be. I do wish them (him, her?)well and good sales for all of the games. I do want to encourage all game developers, right?

lol I can see that we all are attracted to other things. I love churches and steeples. They have always fascinated me and every one I've ever been in (old churches) has been haunted. Love it!! Good luck to you all at Hidden Sanctum. Looking forward to hearing more.

I want to go up in the steeple. Nobody has let me do that in Real Life. Well, not in a church steeple anyway.

Very nice shots. I love horror and creepy stories!
Becky, any church steeples around you look familiar to go along with the "Stony Brook"? Or a creepy looking well? lol

OK now I'm officially worried about myself: my first thought on seeing the Shipwright and Harp Inne was, 'Wow! That would make a great Sims 2 house!' lol

Seriously though, it looks an intriguing premise. I'm not a fan of the gore-fest survival horror genre but I adored Dark Fall and have long been a fan of the ghost story genre - MR James, Le Fanu etc. With the author's professed interest in Poe and Hammer films this will definitely be worth a look laugh

Thanks for the heads up, Becky. It looks promising; I've added it to my list of upcoming games.

Mary -- a few church steeples, not unlike this one. I'd probably have to be hired as a church staff member in order to get up into any of them, though.

Hmmm. Now that I think about it, it might be worth it...

As an FYI, that church steeple is heavily influenced by the one in Middlebury Vermont. (http://www.middbiz.org/) Not an exact duplicate, but pretty darned close. I nearly got into an accident there hanging my head out of my window while driving to snap a quick digital picture. eek Not one of my smartest moves, but that church came up real quick after making a turn and I wasn't ready for it!

BettyLou - No mazes! I really don't like them in my games unless the player has an obvious clue as to how to get through it (like a map!). lol

Hi Ivinia,
I envy the people who will be playing your game! I'm sure they will have a great time, but I know that I would not. I don't dig horror, it bores me. A dark creepy scene with dark creepy music doesn't make me want to look over my shoulder. However, I do like reading about such games in the forum posts and learning how others react. Just like your website, I find that interesting and, Eric, you do have a great website.

Thanks Mindy. I understand that horror games don't appeal to everyone, and I have several other AG ideas I want to pursue as well in the future. I'll also be doing some other smaller games before Ravens Hollow is ready to go that might be of interest. I'm trying to keep the website as simple as possible and easy to navigate. Not everyone has time to go through lots of text, so I'm trying to cut to the chase and get to the point. LOL, if you've seen some of my posts and emails, you'd realize it isn't easy for me to keep things short! lol
