Haarlem, The Netherlands– July 10, 2007– Leading Publisher Lighthouse Interactive today released the second playable demo to their investigative/horror adventure game Delaware St. John Volume 3: The Seacliff Tragedy for Windows®. This eerie point-and-click PC CD-ROM game will be hitting retail shelves across the U.S. and Canada beginning July 23, 2007.
Players are in for a treat. In this second demo, they will have the opportunity to play Kelly Bradford, Delaware St. John’s partner in crime. In the first demo, players took on the role of Delaware himself, but it is important to know that in The Seacliff Tragedy, players need to take on both roles to solve the dark mystery behind the tragedy that occured at the eerie abandoned amusement park.
Kelly is tech savvy, outgoing, quick witted, and a bit of a geek… but in a cute way. She loves a good mystery and enjoys helping solve them. In previous episodes of the Delaware St. John series, Kelly is left behind in the office as Delaware embarks on adventures. This time, Kelly stows away in the back of Delaware’s pickup truck to ensure she’s in the field with Delaware taking an active role. Kelly relies on science and has hi-tech ghosthunting tools at her disposal.
The sound of a hundred voices leads our hero to the site of a decrepit amusement park– a site closed four years earlier after the tragic accident occurred. More than a hundred people were killed. Playing as both Delaware St. John using your psychic abilities, and his partner Kelly Bradford who relies on science and special equipment to track paranormal activity, you discover this is only the beginning of a series of dark events occurring in this condemned amusement park. Demons known as Shadow People are the evil gatekeepers, guarding the desolate park from trespassers.
Armed with your psychic visions and high-tech equipment, you find yourselves trapped in the haunted amusement park. To survive the night, you must fend off these soul-stealing ghouls. Together you must solve the mystery behind a baffling accident known as The Seacliff Tragedy and unlock its dark secrets.
