Join ghost-hunters Nigel Danvers and Lucy Reubans as they investigate a tale of horror and haunting. Wielding the tools of the modern-day ghost-hunter in a cinematic, richly detailed interactive world of wind-swept coastlines and crumbling crypts, you will be captivated, taunted and teased by mind-bending puzzles and interactions with the town 'locals'.

But, be warned, there are those who will stop at nothing to prevent Nigel discovering "that which should stay hidden". With nerves of steel and wits to match, in your search for The Lost Crown you will soon discover long lost secrets previously known only to the dead!

Nigel Danvers: “The figures...nothing but shadows...they won't let me go back”.

Two shadowy agents, Mr.Hare and Mr.Crow, have pursued Nigel across ol' London Town, to retrieve 'top secret documents' stolen that very afternoon. Escaping to the lonely seaside town of Saxton, on England’s east coast, Nigel hopes to hide from his pursuers, as well as his own guilt. Saxton is no ordinary harbour town; it seems to echo with past events, legends and characters. Fascinated, and inspired, by local tales of lost treasure, Nigel makes it his mission to locate Anglia’s last Anglo-Saxon Crown, hidden in the ancient landscape, which surrounds the town. From the misty Fen Land, to the dark avenues of The Carrion Wood, Nigel will leave no stone unturned in his quest to find The Lost Crown.

Lucy Reubans: “I don’t know what I saw..., that night, at the museum...but it was strange…unexplainable…”

Lucy is a 26-yerar-old psychology student, who lives in Saxton during breaks from university. It is in town that Lucy meets Nigel Danvers; the pair instantly get off on the wrong foot.

Nigel’s playful, spooky, nature eventually wins Lucy over, and the two set out to solve crimes and mysteries using their very different methods. Nigel believes in ghosts and supernatural activity, whereas Lucy puts her faith in science, explanation and logic. Beneath her outward, jovial, existence Lucy feels damaged by an event in her past. Her adventures with Nigel will bring that secret to the surface.

"To give it to you in a nutshell, The Lost Crown may actually go down in history as the best horror adventure game ever written...REALLY disturbing...The Lost Crown is as close to perfection as any adventure game I have played in the last few years."  A+   Just Adventure+
