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.”

includes the following features:

  • Spine-tingling ghost story
  • Realistic ghost-hunting, featuring actual
    E.V.P. (Electronic Voice Phenomena)
