Dowerton; a once picturesque rural village, hidden away in the English countryside. Like many villages, it has been tainted by modernity and economic failure; sallow youths hide in the shadows, losing their minds to chemical slime, while others simply disappear into the woods, never to be seen again. The elders of the village hide indoors, all too aware of the darkness that lurks outside.
The once grand Train Station was the heart of the community, but only the very brave, or the very stupid, now approach the place. Adjoining the station is the Victorian Station Hotel. Once a haven for weary travelers and adulterous lovers, the hotel is now in ruins. Rot, decay and time are tearing this place to pieces. This, is where the Dark Fall flourishes.
You, The Inspector, have been trying to solve the case of the eerie abduction of young Amy Haven for several years, but were suspended for tampering with evidence to get the primary suspect convicted, the vagabond known as “Mr. Bones”. Now, you return to Dowerton for a last, paranormal search to find Amy Haven, and to learn the secret of the Dark Fall.
You must watch your step, and never turn your back on the darkness.... Something evil, unknowable and hungry is hiding in the darkness of these old buildings. It wants your soul; to feed upon, devour and torture. Can you make the ghosts your ally so you can battle against the darkness that lurks in that long forgotten, abandoned Hotel?

For someone who's not that big into adventure games, Dark Fall: Lost Souls still left a good impact on me. From well-detailed scenes to awesome interactability with objects, this small game packs quite a punch.
The story is very well-written, and the game itself is nice and long because of it, but never drags once anywhere. Using the light to fight the darkness is an awesome addition, and is something not seen in very many other titles. The music ties in nicely, and adds to the sense of foreboding that permeates much of the game - sudden increases in danger are always signaled by it, and are moments of relative safety.
The game controls well, and looks great. The set pieces are fantastic in their detail, and some are unbelievably gory. There's plenty to look at in each scene, even after you've finished gathering evidence and sorting out your suspicions.
Definitely an adventure game not to be missed, especially if you're a fan of particularly dark and murky ones.
Too scary.ruready12 | April 15, 2012 | See all ruready12's reviews »
This game scared the heck out of me. All throughout the game you will be on the edge of your seat screaming and hiding your head in a blanket hoping something scary does not pop up at that exact moment. Buy this game horror fans, you won't regret it!
