The Story - many decades ago:

It's an incredible game. Instantly grab it if you are interested in paranormal. I've played many adventure games in my life but this one is the absolute top. It's not filled with cheap jumpscares and gory stuff you see in about a hundred games. What gives you the creeps is the eerie atmosphere, the whole station itself. You are free to "explore" the station and hotel and that's what makes it so brilliant. Dowerton station is an abandoned creepy place. You are alone, but not alone at the same time. As soon as you enter the hotel, it will come to "life", full of people although you are still alone. They are are forgotten souls from the past waiting to be freed. Through your journey you can use gadgedts which is fun. The puzzles are very challenging, but if you are stuck you can get a companion from Darkling Room website. I don't want to tell more about the game, you have to find out yourself, I don't want to spoil it. Those EVPs are still haunting me, it's a game I will never forget. "Dark Fall 2: Lights out" is a different story, but "Dark Fall 3: The lost souls" is the sequel to this story. That game is very horroristic and does justice to the characters. It's a really masterpiece in my opinion, this is art. The game engine is kinda outdated, don't expect wide screen support etc, but it's still worth every penny. It won't appeal for everyone of course, but for me it really does.
