The Last Crown: Blackenrock officially announced with new trailer here.

Check out the screenshots here.

Quote:
Haarlem, The Netherlands - 8 May 2014 – Creator Jonathan Boakes has announced that his horror adventure ‘Crown’ franchise has now become a quadrilogy, with three games in simultaneous development.The newest game, titled The Last Crown: Blackenrock, set to release in 2014, takes place after the heralded first installment ‘The Lost Crown’, originally released back in 2008 and often listed as one of the scariest games ever made.

Blackenrock will take place before the events unfolding in The Last Crown: Haunting of Hallowed Isle, announced earlier by publisher Iceberg Interactive and currently also in development. The quadrilogy will be concluded with The First Crown.

Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: “We often get questions when the next Crown game will be released, as does the developer. First of all we are thrilled that there is still a big following out there looking forward to the new Crown games.

However, because of a synchronization of certain efforts, the developer has opted to develop the now three remaining games simultaneously, which means it absorbs a lot of time and planning is difficult, Darkling Room being a tiny studio. With this gameplay video we wish to reassure everyone that games ARE in production and progress is being made.”

He continues: “All ‘Crown’ games will be coming to Steam as well, and we’re currently very busy with putting The Lost Crown onto the platform as soon as possible - and aim to announce a launchdate for it in the near future.”

Darkling Room has released a six minute gameplay video for Blackenrock to show off some actual footage. The video is now streaming on the Iceberg Interactive Youtube Channel. Nine new screenshots have also been released.

About The Last Crown: Blackenrock
Nigel Danvers is haunted. Ever since Halloween, after that brief but disturbing experiment with the Spiritboard, he has felt someone, or something, calling to him. What is the significance of the word 'Blackenrock'? Is it a name, an item, an event, a place? Joining Nigel on his mysterious mission is fellow ghost-hunter Lucy Reubans. Together, they must delve deep into Saxton's murky past, to learn secrets long since buried by those that fear 'The Return'. Armed with upgraded ghost gadgets, they must seek answers from the dead and uncover a century old murder mystery. All the clues regarding Blackenrock lead out to sea, through the dense fog, away from the safety of Saxton. A trip into the unknown! The scattered rocky remnants of old Ulcombe make for treacherous waters, as the claw-like rocks seem to stand guard, preventing all but the most brave from discovering what hides beyond.




Happy Gaming!

Thanks, Ana. Three games in development at the same time is certainly ambitious and a lot of hard work. I'm really looking forward to the next installment. wave

With the effort Jonathan puts into the games he's used to being busy. I'd love a "real" release to fit into my Barrow Hill/Dark Fall/Last Crown collection as well. Perhaps like a Pins and Needles edition.

That was just a small teaser that has grown into a larger full game. Halloween Haunting was the original name for the Blackenrock.

Thank You, Ana..

I must say I am not overly enthusiastic about the game at this point in time. Until I see a definite release date... Its a lot of "Who Shot John"

I am so disappointed with the Halloween version. smirk That never made it to our computers.

So , My Opinion is "Don't shout it out, Unless its Out... wink

Also What ever happen to Bracken Thor? headscratch
