Teaser Trailer

The Eerie World of Dark Fall: Welcome to Dowerton; a once picturesque rural village, hidden away in the English countryside. Like many villages, Dowerton has been tainted by modernity and failure; sallow youths hide in the shadows, loosing there minds to chemical slime, others simply disappear into the woods, never to be seen again, while the elders of the village hide indoors, all too aware of the darkness that lurks outside.

What has happened to Dowerton? The once grand Train Station was the heart of the community, but only the very brave, or the very stupid, now approach the place, which slips further into dereliction with each passing day. Adjoining the Station, is the Victorian-era Station Hotel.

Once a haven for weary travellers and adulterous lovers, the hotel is now in ruins. Rot, decay and time are tearing the place to pieces...leaving you very little time. For you will be entering the old Hotel at Dowerton, one last time, to learn the secret of the Dark Fall.

Official Soundtrack CD: Experience the atmosphere of 'Lost Souls', from crackling gramophone recordings, to deep psychological horror, the soundtrack is not to be listened to in the dark, or alone. It is an uncomfortable and creepy score, matched only by the game itself. Taking inspiration from abandoned, haunted locations, and featuring sounds recorded in the real world, the OST is an unusual representation of fear, loneliness and despair. If purgatory had a jukebox, this CD would be the popular choice amongst spooks. View the Track Listing - Buy Now


The Inspector: Once a highly respected Police Officer, The Inspector was thrown from his beloved job following the disappearance of Amy Haven. He thought he 'had his man', and broke the rules to prove it. The newspapers destroyed the old man, who has felt haunted by Amy ever since. This Bonfire Night he is determined to find out what really happened to her.

Amy Haven: The young girl disappeared on her 11th Birthday, after being expelled from school. The Head Mistress of Saint Swithin's School for Girls thought her a bad influence on the other girls, and she frightened her teachers with macabre drawings and an unhealthy interest in the dead! Amy then vanished, never to be seen again...until Bonfire Night, when The Inspector goes looking for her.

Echo: This eerie character communicates with you through mobile phone text messages (SMS). They appear to be helping you uncover the mystery behind the Dark Fall, but may have an agenda all of their own. Leading you from one dark experience to the next may suggest that Echo is not as friendly as they first seem.

Mr.Bones: No-one knows the real identity of this dark minded vagrant. Mr.Bones is so named after his appalling habit of collecting road kill, skinning the rotten carcass and them boiling the flesh from the bones. Mr.Bones believes he can communicate with the dead, using bones for divination, an ancient art thought to have perished with the 'Old Ones'. Amy shared Mr.Bones fascination for the paranormal, so joined his practise shortly before she disappeared.

Life Leech: A vile, stinking creature that lives off souls in torment. Like a parasite, it is utterly dependent on a host, a ghost trapped in purgatory. The leech feeds and lives by consuming the negative energy created when somebody dies prematurely, and is unable to 'move on'. Only by successfully calling up a spirit, or ghost, will you be able to see the Life Leech itself. It is a precious moment, and all too brief, given that you must vanquish the leech to 'free' the ghost and communicate with them.

The Forgotten: A ghost of someone unable to 'pass on', and enter the afterlife. A member of the 'Forgotten' have usually made some terrible decision, at the last moments of their life, which causes a disturbance in time. Be warned, some ghosts may be confused or not recognise where they are, due to being trapped in purgatory for decades. They may even forget who they are, or what it was that they did that brought about their demise.

Shadowkin: Half-formed ghosts and spirits who are cursed to wander the earth seeking the warmth and light of the living. Never, ever, stay in a darkened space if you suspect the Shadowkin are present, as they will gather around you and drain away your life. Shadowkin are especially prevalent near Life Leeches, as the two species consume the same matter, that being the lost and wasted lives of the living.

Regrets: A regret is a place in time and space where somebody made the 'wrong' decision. It is something they would always regret, possibly leading to their own demise. You will have a chance to enter the 'regrets', of The Forgotten, and change the outcome of the wretched souls. Learning as much as possible, you will gain the trust of The Forgotten, and help them move on, into the afterlife.

The dead of Dowerton are the least of your problems, as you are stalked from one derelict room to the next, by the Dark Fall itself. It wants your soul; to feed upon, devour and torture. You must make the ghosts of the hotel your ally, through any means you can. For it is only through successful exorcisms that you will gain the strength to battle the darkness that lurks in that long forgotten, abandoned place.
