Keeper’s Cottage hides on the westerly edge of Blackenrock Island. It’s your first ‘port of call’ when exploring the islands of Ulcombe Bay. It is a ragged, rocky, wave beaten place, which few care to visit. Some say it’s haunted, others say it’s cursed. Only the lonely, ignorant sheep dwell there now, many of which fall from the cliffs, into the sea, where they slowly drown in the briny waters.

“That sounds like the perfect place for a haunting!” says Nigel Danvers.

A hundred years ago, on the night of Samhain, the Cottage was the scene of a terrible tragedy; a respected Victorian family was found dead. Mostly. I say mostly, as two of the inhabitants of Keeper’s Cottage disappeared without trace!

Father was found hanging from the rafters. Mother was discovered in the bath, an apparent suicide, death by laudanum overdose. One of the twins, Edward, was found smothered in his bed. But, no one knows what happened to Peter; he vanished, never to be seen again. So too did the resident maid, Anne Whittle, who was rumoured to be a witch!

The mystery surrounding Keeper’s Cottage was thought to be ‘unsolvable,’ but not anymore. As Halloween approaches, Nigel realises that he and Lucy Reubans (his ghost-hunting partner) may have the perfect opportunity to crack the case, and learn what dark power dwells within the walls of the abandoned coastal house.

This spooky Halloween adventure game will be available shortly as a digital download.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
