In 2003, The Adventure Company released the critically-acclaimed Dark Fall: The Journal, an one-man project by UK developer Jonathan Boakes. The original game in the series played like a creepier Myst.

An entertaning, original and detailed adventure setting to explore, but there weren't enough puzzles, narrative twists or scary sequences. Lights Out is a worthy follow-up to 2002's Dark Fall, and I look forward to the new games being produced by the one-man development team.

The game is okay, however it's rather short and the puzzles are way to easy. There is too much information which you don't use for the puzzles. so if you are interested in a lot of reading instead of a lot of thinking then this is your game... The whole game has an atmosphere which is very creepy. Unfortunatly it doens't live up to the first dark fall.
Nice try though...
