Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Dark Legends surround the old abandoned Blackwood house, secluded far away in the northern wastelands.

For writer Michael Arthate, this cold, solitary atmosphere is fodder for his restless imagination. But Michael soon becomes distracted by the mysteries offered up, as he follows a trail exploring and delving into the secrets of the past. As he is drawn deeper into the story, his sleep is shattered by mysterious noises, and he is plagued by nightmares that cross into reality.

Whose shadows lurk in the dark corners? Is that lonely house inhabited by restless spirits of the past or something more sinister? What is that sound that chills to the very bone...scratching?

Join Michael in a suspenseful adventure, as you explore beautiful and chilling environments. Prowl dark corners and solve puzzles leading to the solution of a tale begun with obsession, and ending with madness and murder.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value, Enjoyable, but Challenging June 8, 2011
    By Mabel

    This review does consider the price at the time of purchase ($5.00). Overall, I thought the game was well crafted and enjoyable after I got used to the game play, but it's challenging. Also, I'm not sure about the replay value. The story is compelling the first time around, but some of the gameplay (examining all areas possible) gets tedious.

    I had no technical issues with the downloading, installing, or running the game; it loaded quickly and ran well.

    The graphics are quite good, especially considering the low screen resolution. The hues and saturation match the story very well. There is little animation, but those moments were fairly well done. However, I had a difficult time adjusting to the game play. The cursor is always anchored in the center of the screen, which means the entire screen moves when you move your mouse, even slightly. It's probably just a personal issue, but I got nauseous the first time I played, and it really wasn't until my third attempt that I got used to it. There are still moments where I get disoriented (when I move the mouse too much), but it's much better now.

    The music was sparingly used but very effective. Like the graphics, it matched and enhanced the tone of the game very well. There were key moments where the music alone made me want to exit the room as quickly as possible. The sound effects were fine, unobtrusive.

    The story was really interesting, and I really enjoyed how the player had the opportunity to collect and put together the pieces himself/herself. There were no flashbacks or explanatory cut scenes.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing October 27, 2013
    Verified Purchase
    This game was much better than I was anticipating. I thought for $2.50 I would take the risk that it would be bad, but I was pleasantly surprised with how great it was. The story kept me interested and the ending had me thinking long after the game was over. The game is rather short though. I believe I finished it in about 3 hours or so. It may not compare to most games now, but for the cheap price it is well worth it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Creepy! November 22, 2012
    Verified Purchase
    The other night I had a dream that my sons and I were in the mansion from Scratches and they had a huge wrench (ah, the ubiquitous wrench) and were trying to open the secret door in the fireplace. I knew there was a monster down there and I was trying to stop my sons from going and didn’t know what to do, so I woke up! That is how profoundly affected I’ve been from this game which I’ve played twice. It is truly suspenseful and I have the clenched jaw to prove it.
    With the exception of the 360 degree effect (that sometimes makes people dizzy) everything else is wonderful. The game takes place inside and outside the mansion, so it is never tedious. I really like the main character’s voice, the graphics (although some may feel that they are too dark), the story line (what a surprise toward the end), the additional story that continues a few years later, and everything else about the game including the tasks that are quite do-able for the not-so-experienced Adventure gamer
    It is well worth the money and time. I’m Romani (Gypsy) and my gran always told me to look out the window after waking from a bad dream and you will not remember it . I forgot to do that but if you dream of the game, don’t forget!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Delicious Mystery October 3, 2012
    A Delicious Mystery from beginning to end. A blend of detective work, horror & sadness. A choice of 3D or static. The music by "Cellar of Rats" is perfect & the Graphics are beautiful.

    A tragic family trying to ward off a terror they created out of greed. Definitely a long game with twists & turns. The mansion's architecture is the key to solving the mystery. If you like being scared, this game delivers. Make sure your lights are on when you enter the Chapel!!!

    I purchased this game via retail years ago & it still remains my favorite by far. Difficult though it may be, a walkthrough would be helpful for some players. I cannot believe this game received such a low rating, therefore, I had to add my personal rating of 5 STARS.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Scratched My Eyes Out in Frustration! May 24, 2012
    I bought this game a couple of years ago and just now got around to playing it. At first I enjoyed it and found it entertaining enough. But I soon tired of opening and closing doors and traversing from room to room and outbuilding to outbuilding. On my pc it took a count of about 17 to complete the door opening process. I quickly hated the prospect of going through another door only to engage in another pixel hunt. It is a short game and I found I was almost finished after consulting a walkthrough because I just so badly wanted the game to be over. And because I am an OCD kind of person I felt compelled to finish the game. Aarrggh! Also, one, maybe two, puzzles in the game were not logical. Anyway, I finished. I'd say the game is worth about $5. You'd be wasting your money if you paid any more than that.
