Welcome to Ghost Vigil

Our aim is to prove the existence of 'ghosts' through paranormal experiments. The venue is Harewood House, boasting a disturbing history, waiting to be experienced, by you. We believe the building is haunted, not by a single unknown entity, but several. The O.P.G have placed several remote live cameras and experiments throughout the building.

Harewood House is now empty as it has been for 4 decades, but you can be the eyes in the dark... watching... waiting. Discover what happened.

The house was built in 1747, as a country home for Lord Harwood, his wife and young son, Edgar. The Harwood estate was modest, stretching to a few dark wooded hills, deep in the Oxfordshire countryside. A tragedy occurred, in 1749, when Lord Harwood lost his son to scarlet fever.

A mixed history then befell Harwood House; it was passed from one owner to another in quick succession. It would appear no-one wanted to stay, for long. In later years the house became a hotel, a maternity hospital and eventually, in 1968, a children's home known as Shangri La.


Your Role:

You are very new to the OPG, the Oxford Paranormal Group, but have to face your first 'all night vigil' at Harwood House. You have been given the Attic, as your designated 'closed door experiment'.

In addition to exploring your designated investigation area, there are also ghost cams available to see other parts of the venue, as well as interactions with your fellow OPG members via messages and walkie talkie.

Your mission is to monitor the equipment and paranormal experiments. Things start off okay, with potential activity; orbs, flashes, temperature drops... until midnight, when things become deeply ‘unexplainable’. Who haunts the attic of Harwood House?

Features:

Explore a detailed and haunting setting, for ghost hunting and exploration.
Full immersive soundtrack in surround sound.
Hear real audio phenomena captured during Ghost Hunts.
Point And Click interface Adventure Game.
Solo gameplay.
Experience flashbacks to the past through Time Slips.
Uncover the secret hauntings at Harwood House.
Conduct experiments into the paranormal.
A cast of ghosts to discover and ghost hunting companions to remotely interact with during your Ghost Hunts.
Written by Jonathan Boakes, creator of the Dark Fall and Lost Crown games.
Utilise a collection of Ghost Hunting gadgets to discover supernatural activity.
Monitor CCTV cameras set up across the location.
Use Dictaphone EVP recordings, Night Vision camera, EMF Detectors and a Thermal cam to help pinpoint phenomena.


Happy Gaming!

Ana

Message from Jonathan via FB:

Hi all, super excited about tomorrow evening. It’s a genuine new Dark Fall game, with a creepy story, several stories really, when ghosts are involved. A lovely big location (creepy attics, echoing Hall, dark tunnels) and lots of nostalgic fun for adventure fans.

💪🏼I’ve worked very hard on this game, which has high production values and thousands of hours of game development work. I really enjoyed it! But do understand that games are hard work. Often long lonely hours, in front of the LCD. But, I did got out a few times this Summer. 🌞

The production and success of this game directly influences the production of Blackenrock and the Crown games. There are several Crown references in Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil, and the character Nigel Danvers actually comes from the Dark Fall games, and will return to them, in time.

I’ve seen a few people commenting WHERE IS BLACKENROCK again, and WHY ARNT YOU MAKING BLACKENROCK??!! Well, dear, a production with 30+ fully acted 3D characters, with animations, is quite different to the production of a Dark Fall game (which has NONE). They are DIFFERENT. I started with the Dark Fall games, and they continue to sell well to this day. My evergreen ghost hunting games. Making a new one has been cool, something I can make on my own, and I’ve learnt new technology at the same time.

It’s good to be back! I love writing ghost stories and creating an atmosphere, so any support is good support. 👍🏼

See you soon ghost hunters! 👻

Thanks, Ana. Since GOG has Jonathan's other Dark Fall games, I am hoping that this one will show up there too.

Thanks Ana! I'm glad to see him responding to the "where is Blackenrock" question. I have often wondered why he works on so many different games at one time instead of just finishing one and then moving on to the other. I told myself (and believe) that inspiration strikes while working on one and gets him thinking and starting on another and the story grows and grows etc., but now I see a totally different side of it also.

I just got a reply on Twitter from Jonathan, saying that he is going to approach GOG next week about releasing the new Dark Fall game there. He said it will also be on itch.io. wave

It's been uploading all day, they were hoping it would be up by midnight (UK). We may still get a chance in the US to play tonight!
