Overhauled main game + free horror shooter game included!

Into the Dark, the ubertrashy Austrian / Czech / Romanian playable B-Movie experience, has an all-new, updated, improved, expanded and - honestly - even worse Halloween Edition live on Steam!

A huge load of work has been spent on a new post-processing pipeline and new segment / environment textures, introducing for the first time PBR materials into a Homegrown Games production.

Here is a detailed changelist:

  • 84 new textures, 62 of them PBR materials
  • 2 new postprocessing routines
  • 1 new puzzle
  • 1 new item
  • 2 new, really bad jokes
  • 1 new propaganda poster
  • 1 new voice over recording
  • 15% less memory usage
  • 47% less crashes compared to previous version
  • New free Halloween Minigame "Into the Asylum":

The first Beta of the Minigame is already enclosed in the Steam Version of Into the Dark, the full version of the free "Into the Asylum" will be pushed live during Halloween night!

Please also support our "serious" interfaith development project "Antinomy" !

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.

Highest Rated (15 agree) 9/10

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…
