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

Interesting game so far...but I'm stuck at a seemingly game-breaking bug.
I'm on Level 3, and seem to be unable to walk through an open doorway. I have gotten two keys, and have both used them; one that lets me start looking for the third weapon...and the other for a supposed book room? For the book room, the animation for the door will open, and vanish, but I can not walk through. I have dragged a box to the doorway, and it's not just me; the door itself still seems to be there, blocking me, but I can see inside.
I've had fun so far, but what am I supposed to do now? I've reloaded my auto-save three times now, to no avail.

Don't you think its very unfair that people have to buy Into the Dark again to get access to Into the Ice? access should be given to every owner of Into the Dark IMO.

You are right, we haven´t thought that through properly.

We will give access to the first alphas to all owners of the Desura version.

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…
