Lightning Man Media's New PC/Mac Horror Game Coming to Desura

Posted by on

What could be more frightening than becoming stranded in near total darkness, lost and alone? In Nyctophobia, the new PC game developed by Lightning Man Media, you face down your fears and find your way back into the light.

Nyctophobia takes place in Lakeview Woods where players find themselves marooned and plunged into darkness after driving their truck into a boulder. They must then navigate on foot through foreboding environments from an abandoned train station to a skeleton lake. All the while they are pursued by a mysterious man known only as “The Keeper” who scatters cryptic messages along the way. Players follow clues to collect items needed to restore power and bring back the light. But they only have a small flashlight to find their way and must constantly work to keep the batteries charged in order to survive.

Nyctophobia is a 3D first person adventure game that will be available on Desura beginning March 18, 2015. See the trailer on YouTube. Additional screenshots are available through Desura.

“I wanted to recreate the experience of wandering through the woods late at night,” says game developer Chris McGlade. “I grew up in a dense wooded area and it always creeped me out when it started to get dark. I guess this was a way of confronting my own Nyctophobia.”
