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

0 comments by IvanErtlov on Jun 27th, 2014

100% gaming insanity, death of millions of poor Paypal accounts and wallets, and the time of the year when gamers have a perfect excuse to be exhausted and fall asleep at work: The Steam Summer Sale is really a crazy event, comparable to the black Friday (or fleeing from a horde of mutants).

But it´s the first year that we from Homegrown Games participate, so it´s entirely new to us.  And we have really gone low with our prime rib game "Into the Dark" for that one.

Now you can become Yog-Sothoths Puppetmaster, Hentai-proof and Schrödingers cat expert for less than $6!


However, you don´t have to buy if you own the game already on Desura:

We are handing out free steam keys to people who have bought the game on Desura on request. People who have bought the game via one of the bundle promotions are NOT entitled to claim a free steam key, however, on a case-to-case base, we may still give you a press key. Contact us for details here via PM.
 
We have uploaded a first UNIFIED version into the Desura Client version here. So if you run Into the Dark via client installation, it should already have performed a major update. The first testruns were promising, however, we cannot guarantee that it will work flawless, please report all bugs into our IndieDB Forums. The unified version is the same like the steam version except some ragdolling routines and the Steam achievements (of course).

  •  Irwin ragdolls more beautifully when shot on Steam. (but why would you shoot him?!)

So, to cut it short: If you already own the game, we thank you very much for your support. If not, use the madness of Steams Summer Sale to get it for as low as € / $ 5.99 !

Just bought the game through an indie bundle. Installing and launching works fine...but... where are the options? I have some settings in the launcher, but where are the video settings for resolutions, the audiosettings and most important, where are the keyboard/mouse settings?! I am lefthanded player an i use the cursorkeys. Also i play with invert mouse. This is a real issue for a game where you even cannot change the key layout or mouse sensivity. Really like to play the game, because i paid for it. But in this control condition its unplayable for me.

All settings are confiogurable in the setup.ini file in your game folder. And if you send your desired keys mapping to homegrown@gmx.at, my staff will send you a customized ini with your prefered settings.

Well, we were not 100% happy with the German Boxed version, thats the reason why we created a totally new version for Desura.
However, if you look at the German Boxed version, you will see that the subtitles were rather descriptions of what is happening, and only the context info was given in German. This is because of the fact that many eastereggs and jokes were based on linguistics, therefore not translatable.

If you want, I can have our team make a patch that translates the mission log, this could rather useful.

Yes this could be useful Great Idea, thanks for answering so quickly.
I can understand English but the "German Translation" was funny , cause first I watched the Gametube Lets Play and the Intro was funny when Sam talks about " Insurance Fraud " and the german text said "Abcashen" :-) i hope you know what i mean
Greetings from Germany and lovely game i like weird Nazi Storys ......

Very appreciated, Stephen!

However, you have featured Into the Dark with footage from "Into the Ice", which is the sequel. Both are on the IOTY Top 100, so perhaps you confused something here ;)

you know what ... i've done the audio for Into the Ice thats set to come out later today / tonight... and i think theres been a mix up with teh footage xD funilly enough if i'd left it another day it would have most likely been fine haha but thats rly funny im so sorry about that!!

Atleast i can tell you that both games are really awesome xD We've been crazy having fun looking into both of them and im excited as balls for Into the Ice :x which im sure you'll be pestered by another message like this later on today xD

i do apologise we kinda took upon ourselves a massive task here with the IOTY Top 100. We've had to stop our regular shows lol for this week atleast. And everyone is focusing on playing or looking into these games and getting videos out!

I hope you can forgive us this mistake >.< stupid as it is, and know that fingers crossed the footage should be right for Into the Ice Tonight lol

But thank you again for making the awesome games! And we wish you the best in the last voting!

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…
