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

One of the most unusual, most interesting, most intelligent and for sure most underrated game I ever played. More fun than most AAA games, and for sure more subversive!
Congratulations!

Just to let you know:

There is a discussion about Magrunner on Gamestar, where your game is mentioned :D

It´s a pitty this game is not as famous outside IndieDB as Minecraft & Amnesia, you would for sure deserve it.

Far better trash than Blood Dragon...

Hey there! I made this little mod for anyone who is too stup...I mean who finds it inconvenient to edit the .ini file.
Mediafire.com
It sets the default "use" action to the "f" key and relocates the "deploy silencer" for the pistol to the "x" key.
I wanted to upload it here but Homegrown has no custom Mod support here. Clearly because they are evil nazi mutants from the moon. ;)
Enjoy!

hi, to the dev, i bought the game , this has good graphics and atmosphear but there are some things i don't like at all:
1)UI and mian menu are simply orrible..this need a lot of work and i hope you can do this. Add option to map controls pls...it's absurd i have to press enter to have action, crouch on C is absurd too.Add remap keys and other option asap!
2) i played only a bit..audio is great, but it's to much dark for my taste. and no option to gamma or something else..a flashlight maybe?
3) let the movment a bit more natural

btw i will enjoy this game but only with at least key remap and gamma options

and why not add an option to a separate download for whom already have seen the Movie?

1. Sir, I beg to differ! The style of the UI and Main Manu are PERFECT and LOVELY for our TRASH experience. Especially with Adolf and the tentacles! ;)

2. You can remap the keys to your taste in the setup.ini

3. Well, this sounds like you are playing on a TV or on a monitor with sime boogey "Super Contrast Prozessor". However: In your scriptfolder, you have a pitchzero.fpi and pitchdark.fpi. SImply open it in Notepad and type in whatever ambience value you want!

thanks for the kind answer mr. with UI i mean the main menu outside the game...it's barely clikable..(the little white lunch menu )..doesn't work very well. i'm playing on a IIjama 22" TN lcd...but an in game option for brightness is a must have option for this type of game in my opinin..like the Control mapping..i hope you cana dd this in the near future..not everyopne are cappable of intweract with .ini other stuff..:)

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…
