Dark Fall: Lost Souls

You have unfinished business with the dead. Return to the Train Station and Hotel at Dowerton for a second time, there is a new mystery to solve, and new horrors to face.

  • From the pen of Jonathan Boakes, author of The Lost Crown.
  • Explore a derelict train station & hotel, abandoned since World War 2.
  • A new game engine allows full exploration and movement.
  • Physically interact with the eerie setting, to really ‘feel’ the place.
  • Use light as your weapon and ally, to fight the darkness.
  • A hauntingly creepy stereo score, to chill, alarm and horrify.
  • Explore the memories of the dead, in their own ‘nightmares’.
  • Discover the true identity, and power behind, the Dark Fall itself.

Continuing projects and commitment:

As well as advancing with new, and exciting, interactive material, Darkling Room will continue to provide continuous support and loyalty to our previous clients, such as the prolific and widely read "Anorak Zone". This collection of web portals, devoted to classic and cult television and film, is rapidly becoming the number one source for interviews, new fiction and listings concerning many popular shows, including BBC's hugely popular Doctor Who, and Sapphire & Steel. The latter was recently re-launched with a brand new cast including veteran actor 'David Warner' as Steel, and Ultraviolet's 'Susannah Harker' as Sapphire. Check the Sapphire and Steel portal for news of up and coming interviews with cast and crew.

Darkling Room are also now the proud hosts of This Haunted Land and the sister site Mysterious Coast. The latter will be launched in the high summer, and offer guides, reviews and recommendations for holidays and work breaks around the Cornwall area, in the UK. Whereas, This Haunted Land continues to explore the realm of the supernatural, paranormal and downright scary. With casefiles, audio clips and spooky video, this site is a must for ghost fans. Darkling Room is thrilled to host the site, and provide space for this rapidly expanding collection.


Older projects and retired domains:

XXv Productions were the original hosts of the "Dark Fall" games, and the websites which accompanied them. When traffic to these sites eventually subsides, some form of archiving is essential for them to survive intact. Darkling Room will be happy to store these excellent websites indefinitely for others to enjoy. Both Dark Fall titles are available to buy in stores, and across the net. Enter either the Dark Fall or Dark Fall 2 website to find details on purchasing. A new archive/scrapbook of XXv Production's previous projects, and 'oddments' can be found here. Rare and unusual items include never seen before Dark Fall box covers, technical experiments for Dark Fall 2, short films and unabridged screenplays for games.
