Got Game Entertainment Ships “The Lost Crown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure” to Stores Across North America
Spines tingle and hairs raise as a ghostly new suspense-adventure game for the PC haunts retail shelves this week
Got Game Entertainment LLC today announced that the “The Lost Crown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure” has shipped to North American retail. Created by adventure gaming legend Jonathan Boakes (“Dark Fall”, “Dark Fall II: Lights Out”) and his Darkling Room team, this highly anticipated suspense-adventure game for the PC combines a dense, rich, spine-tingling story inspired by classic ghost stories with today’s modern ghost-hunting techniques. With an intuitive interface which allows players to wield the tools of a paranormal investigator, an impressive cast of 3D characters, actual E.V.P. (Electronic Voice Phenomena) recordings, and photographs of unexplained entities captured by Boakes while researching the game, “The Lost Crown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure” brings a frightening story to bone-chilling life.
Inspired by the works of Charles Dickens, M.R. James, Arthur Conan Doyle, and E.F. Benson, “The Lost Crown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure” finds ghost-hunters Nigel Danvers and Lucy Reubans investigating a tale of horror and haunting along England's fog-shrouded coastline, famed for its legends of smugglers, pirates, and ghosts. In a cinematic, richly detailed interactive world, part black and white, part vivid color, and against a dramatic backdrop of wind-swept coastlines and crumbling crypts, players are captivated, taunted, and teased by mind-bending puzzles and interactions with the town locals, earthly and otherwise. Skills at ghost-hunting and detecting paranormal activity directly affect how the game continues. While there are those who seek to prevent the disturbance of that which is buried, for those players with nerves of steel, and wits to match, discovery of long lost secrets, previously known only to the dead, awaits.
“A classic ghost story, whether old or new, should have us believe that something ‘unexplainable’ surrounds and influences us,” said creator Jonathan Boakes. “And, if we are lucky, it should scare us into realizing that there truly are ‘more things in heaven and earth’ than the absolute skeptics would like us to believe.”
“The Lost Crown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure” includes the following features:
- Spine-tingling ghost story
- Realistic ghost-hunting, featuring actual E.V.P. (Electronic Voice Phenomena)
- Photographs of unexplained entities captured by creator Jonathan Boakes while researching the game
