Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder marks the first of an adventure game trilogy released by Zoetrope Interactive in which the developer attempts to crossbreed Lovecraftian horror with modern British police drama.

Great game! Loved every minute of it. Some of the rooms are indeed very dark, but it helps to build up this constant feeling of uneasiness. Can't wait to play Darkness Within 2.

Good game. I like its atmosphere and story.

Wow! This game looks genuinely awful. Is it safe to say that the darkness is a cover up for poor graphics and animation? I can understand a few dark areas in a game, but this sounds truly dreadful.

It's funny that I just finished reading a collection of Lovecraft's stories--I hadn't read him before, though of course knew of his style. I was thinking that many of his stories and themes would make great fodder for adventure games, but apparently it's not that easy to get right.

Looks like most of the latest adventures are pretty disappointing. Any stars on the horizon, I wonder?
