Haarlem, The Netherlands– October 8th 2009– Fast expanding videogame publisher Iceberg Interactive and British game developers Darkling Room and Shadow Tor Studios have announced that they will jointly release the bundle “British Horror Pack” throughout UK, Scandinavia and Benelux, starting next month with the UK.
The British Horror Pack will consist of epic UK-developed horror adventure games that have raised the bar for all that followed in its footsteps: Dark Fal l: The Journal Classic Edition and Dark Fall: Lights Out The Director’s Cut Edition and Barrow Hill. The Dark Fall special editions contain many new additional features such as new graphics and effects, new puzzles and an enhanced story, new spooks and thrills with more ghostly encounters, as well as new additional music and sound to bring the game world even more to life. All games will work on modern Windows versions. The Pack will also contain the games’ combined soundtrack CD with a spine chilling eerie score, and will be offered in a luxury slipcase packaging at an attractive price point.
Erik Schreuder, CEO for Iceberg Interactive said:“Barrow Hill and the Dark Fall games have stunned many gamers with their excellent stories that are set in typical British environments, well thought out puzzles and most of all, their eerie atmosphere. Without submitting to gore, these games will scare you by sheer suggestion, which is to be applauded nowadays. These are games all Brits should be proud of, as they were excellent productions from small but extremely talented teams. This is the moment to either start playing these classics or to replay them on modern PC’s, especially since these are special editions that weren’t available before.”
The British Horror Pack is a new addition to the Adventure Classics range that Iceberg Interactive will start releasing, with re-mastered (Windows XP, Vista and 7) versions of famous adventure games such as the Syberia Collection and the Dracula Trilogy launching on October 30th, 2009.
