Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Darkling Room have released a teaser trailer today for their highly anticipated ghost-hunting adventure game The Last Crown: Blackenrock. The new game is part of a trio of sequels to the scary first game The Lost Crown, available on Steam since last year.
Iceberg Interactive CEO Erik Schreuder says: “Darkling Room have been working on the trio of sequels simultaneously. The first instalment Blackenrock is promising to be one of the biggest adventure games ever created, having made huge strides over the course of 2015, we look forward to gamers encountering the ghostly hauntings over the coming months.”
Darkling Room’s Jonathan Boakes says: “Ghosts! Who is watching who? The teaser explores an idea I’ve been experimenting with for years: what if ghosts know we are watching? What if the very gadgets we use to ‘hunt’ ghosts provide a conduit, a portal, to their world, the ghost world?! Imagine an existence that sits alongside ours, invisible, like dark matter, but it occasionally ‘seeps’ into our world, creating ghost sightings and apparitions.
Do we, in turn, appear in their world, the past? Perhaps our appearance generates the very story that we are investigating? Or, we cause some sort of chronological damage? A rip in time, that leaks and distorts the here and now, a connection with all times? Basically, rather than think of ghost sightings as one-off, or occasionally recurring events, think instead that the ghosts are there the entire time, all around us. You just need the right tech, the right place, the right questions, and those connections become stronger.”
