Darkness Within Lurks Onto the Steam Platform

Publisher Iceberg Interactive and Turkish development studio Zoetrope Interactive are happy to announce that a revamped version of their H.P. Lovecraft-inspired point-and-click horror adventure Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder (PC, 2007), has been released to the Steam Platform.

With enhanced graphics and Steam achievements,Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder will send shivers up your spine by taking players to a disturbing corner of the human psyche. Meanwhile, developer Zoetrope Interactive is busy preparing a Director’s Cut Edition of the second instalment, Darkness Within 2: The Dark Lineage (PC, 2010) for its Steam release in a few weeks.

Zoetrope Interactive’s Galip Kartoglu says: “We really enjoyed getting back together and updating both games for more recent Operating Systems, adding Steam achievements, improving the games’ graphics as well as adding new puzzles and environments for Part 2. In fact we’re liking it so much, that after years of a focus outside of making games, we’re feeling a strong pull to get back into game development. Who knows, maybe one day there might be a ‘Darkness Within 3’, depending on the reception these two classics are given by the Steam audience. Either way, we’re very excited to see our work debut on Steam today.

The trailer is now also streaming on the Iceberg Youtube channel here.

Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder is now available on Steam at $ 7.99 and will have a 15% launch discount.  http://store.steampowered.com/app/298930/
