Get the Midnight Horror here.

Quote:
Haarlem, The Netherlands – 29 October 2015 – Get spooked with Midnight Horror (PC), a new adventure by Jonathan Boakes (Dark Fall, The Lost Crown). Midnight Horror is released today on Steam and is set between the The Lost Crown (2008) and The Last Crown: Blackenrock (soon to be released).

Midnight Horror comes with all the trappings a fan of the ‘Crown’ series would expect. Set on Halloween, a new Saxton village mystery will be uncovered, with the help of ghost-hunting gadgets, a séance and use of the Dark Arts. Collect your ghostly evidence and find out who or what is haunting the local harbour pub. Test your detective skills to uncover this brand new paranormal mystery.

“Midnight Horror is a standalone ghost story, a celebration of Halloween, but also acts as a re-introduction to the ‘Crown’ universe, and the people of Saxton,” says Darkling Room’s Jonathan Boakes. He continues: “I hope you enjoy the game! It's been a blast to make and it acts as a super Prologue for Blackenrock, as well as a seasonal title in its own right.”

Various assets have been created for the release of Midnight Horror, to show a first eerie glimpse of the game. The gameplay trailer is now streaming on Iceberg’s Youtube channel HERE. Download the complete press kit, containing screenshots and the gameplay trailer HERE.

Development of the new Crown game The Last Crown: Blackenrock is wrapping up and the release date will shortly be announced by publisher Iceberg Interactive. Meanwhile, Midnight Horror is now available on Steam with an attractive SRP of just $4.99/€4,99 / £3.99. http://store.steampowered.com/app/291770

About Midnight Horror
Halloween: when the veil between our world and the 'other side' is at its weakest. Witches celebrate Samhain, a Celtic festival from the old religion, conjuring the dead and communing with the spirits. Nigel Danvers, ghost-hunter, knows all about the ghosts that dwell in the darkness, he has seen plenty to convince him there are dark forces at work. So, why is Halloween so different? Something is haunting the guest rooms above the local harbour-side pub, The Bear. Who or what hides in the shadowy corners of the old Inn? What is the presence at the end of the Harbour Wall? Dusting down his old ghost-hunting gadgets, Nigel gets to work. He has one night to find out, before the veil returns to full strength, and the Halloween Horror is gone, for another year.


Features:
• A classic point and click adventure.
• An intermezzo between The Lost Crown and The Last Crown: Blackenrock.
• Story driven plot by Jonathan Boakes (Dark Fall, The Lost Crown).
• Test your detective skills to uncover a paranormal mystery.
• Utilise an array of ghost-hunting gadgets to see and hear the spirit world.
• Interact with the Saxton locals, in your pursuit of the truth.
• Dabble in the Dark Arts, on Samhain, like the witches of old.
• Collect ghostly evidence, to scrutinise for clues.
• Play several Halloween Party games, many with a supernatural twist.
• Practise your Psychometry skills, with local White Wicca, Nanny Noah.
• Full cast audio and music, plus atmospheric sound effects.

I read an interesting comment on Jonathan's blog about this game.

"The game will be available online, Steam, but also from me, directly, DRM free in the near future. I also want to make a lower res version for laptops and smaller desktop resolutions."

That is good news on many levels. You can check his blog for the totality of remarks with this link.

Great news, thanks Ana! woot And thanks for the additional news, oldmariner! Glad he's also making a DRM free version. thumbsup I went ahead and bought the Steam version because I'm in a hurry. lol I'll purchase the DRM free version as well, probably as soon as it's out, since it doesn't cost very much.

Looking forward to the fuller upcoming game as well. thumbsup

This is not the one from a year ago. This is an entirely different one.

Can it be a question of resolution (which actually is a part of requirements)? If not something is definitely amiss. eek

Gosh what a lovely surprise, 'course I couldn't wait and am now downloading from Steam but a bit of surprise that it will take about 4 hours to download and that is with fibre optic at 35 Mb, but I just know it will be well worth it, can't wait for the evening when I will have time to explore. dance taz
