Developer Zoetrope Interactive’s Darkness Within series is truly a game saga that will send shivers up your spine by taking players to a disturbing corner of the human psyche; exploring nightmares, the occult, and a frightening psychological world.

Expect things to get scary, dark and bizarre and don’t keep your hopes up for that rosy ending.”
