Welcome to your ultimate nightmare:

"You`re Peter "Pete" O`Brannon, a Private Eye. Sounds faszinating? It isn`t, trust me - unless you find it exciting to hunt down cheating husbands and lost dogs while living of cheap Chinese food in shabby motels. THAT would be what Petes job is all about - but luckily for him, he has a good customer paying his bills. It`s GlobalSecure Inc., one of the biggest insurance companies on the East Coast. More exactely, it`s Samantha "Sam" Miller who runs their investigation departement on insurance fraud. She`s tough, she`s intelligent, she`s better than Pete. By far better. But due to the companies Code of Conduct and some very nasty ethic rules, she`s prevented from taking, erm, "semi-legal" steps to gain essential information and proofs. That`s where Pete steps in - for 500 bucks per day + expenses + a nice 20% share of the money the company saves with whatever Pete finds out.

Into the Dark is a playable B-Movie, a trash Experience composed out of 60% humour, 30% horror and 10% technical flaws. Enjoy!


This game is based upon the winning entry of the scariest game competition on TGC:

The first release on Gamersgate and as boxed retail product was 30th of October 2012, the official Desura Release in April 2013

If you have updated and started Into the Dark on Steam during the last hours, you already know it: Our Halloween Event 2016 has started!


Now, Into the Dark includes not only the old Halloween game from 2015, but als a fully playable teaser level from the upcoming (Fall 2017) Sequel "Into the Ice - Nazis of Neuschwabenland"!

If you start the game from your Steam client or right-click it in your library overview, you will have now plenty of options, enjoy them all!

Ah, yes, and I almost forgot:

The first iteration of Into the Dark "final" patch is also uploaded!

  • More PBR-generated materials
  • Additional tweaked textures and normal maps
  • 3 MB less memory c crashes
  • slightly improved soundmixing
  • New Shaderpipeline
  • Better visibility on lower light settings
  • Includes "grace" savegames from the first 8 levels

Now it looks like that:


Of course, it's not the final patch yet. However, before we nail that down, we still have to do something in the next 72 hours to come.

What?

The Halloween Edition for Father's Island, of course!

It is a okay game I did play better games before if the I don't mind the dark in this game just the really slow walking and blowing up stuff it more the impact of the explosion is to big I stand as far away as I can get but it still hit or killed I can't find the options menu to set the screen or to see the controls the rest of the game is oky some glitches here and there I like the creepy sound it makes it more scary to play at night hope to see some updates on the game it can be improved a lot

I would have prefered giving Feedback to the developers on their page, but the games installer points to IndieDB, so it`s gonna be somehow public: Although I`m pretty proud that this one is from Austria, obviously not far from here, I`ll stick to facts and spare the patriotism influence. I bought this game because of the report on Austrian TV, so I knew what I had to expect - Trash, Zombies, B-Movie-Style. I love that, so I gave it a try. And the game delivers exactly what it promises: Trash, B-Movie…
