Beyond the Spirit's Eye

Even though I never played William R. Fisher's original Last Half of Darkness horror adventure, something tells me (coldly whispers) I'll be one of the first gnomes to get my short hairy hands on the forthcoming Last Half of Darkness: Beyond the Spirit's Eye. I mean, the early demo that's just been made available -despite being appropriately ...uhm... early and rough around the edges- is so enthralling and atmospheric, I'm sold. Yes, sold for a node-based, slightly Myst-styled, point and click adventure. And I really hate Myst. Uru too.

Anyway, till BtSE gets a proper release date, you could do worse than having a look at the game's official site and giving the demo a try. I'm pretty sure the spooky atmosphere and the interesting ambient sounds will appeal to most. Except people hating spooky atmospheres and interesting ambient sounds, that is...
