Dark Fall: Lost Souls, the third title in the adventure game series which will complete paranormal game trilogy. 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.

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. The old buildings have deteriorated since your last perilous adventure, so you must watch your step, and never turn your back on the darkness...for something hides there; Something evil, unknowable and hungry. 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.

Dark Fall: Lost Souls will now be published worldwide by Iceberg Interactive rather than just in Europe. That being said, no retail version is planned for North-America, but the many oversees fans of the Boakes games will be able to purchase Lost Souls via the Iceberg Shop (gone live yesterday, open for pre-order) or via electronic download.

Parties also agreed that Iceberg will publish the Lost Souls predecessor Dark Fall: Lights Out The Director’s Cut worldwide instead of just in the UK. The same goes for Adventures in Terror – British Horror Collection, in conjunction with Shadow Tor Studios. Adventures in Terror is a deluxe re-mastered collection consisting of Barrow Hill, Dark Fall: The Journal and Lights Out, as well as the original soundtrack CD of all games.

Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to sell the Dark Fall games worldwide and look forward to launching them before the year ends.”

On the release date of Lost Souls he also shared the following information: “Jonathan is currently still finishing up the game. He intends for Lost Souls to be the final Dark Fall game in the series and wants to tie up all loose ends, hence why it is taking slightly longer to conclude. Rest assured that it will come this year though.”
