Okay, here’s the latest info from Darkling Room/Iceberg Interactive regarding The Last Crown: Blackenrock. This ghost-hunting adventure is part of a trio of sequels to The Lost Crown.

Ever since a brief but disturbing experiment with a Spiritboard, Nigel Danvers has felt someone or something calling to him. What is the significance of the word “Blackenrock?” Is it a name, an item, an event, a place?

Join Nigel and fellow ghost-hunter Lucy Reubans as they use new, improved ghost-hunting paraphernalia to search for clues to a century-old murder mystery. Accompany them as they delve deeply into a richly-detailed interactive world of ghostly tales, wind-swept coastlines, abandoned buildings and crumbling churchyards.

Erik Schreuder, Iceberg Interactive CEO: Darkling Room have been working on the trio of sequels simultaneously. The first installment Blackenrock is promising to be one of the biggest adventure games ever created, having made huge strides over the course of 2015, we look forward to gamers encountering the ghostly hauntings over the coming months.

Jonathan Boakes of Darkling Room: Ghosts! Who is watching who? The teaser explores an idea I’ve been experimenting with for years:  what if ghosts know we are watching? What if the very gadgets we use to ‘hunt’ ghosts provide a conduit, a portal, to their world, the ghost world?! Imagine an existence that sits alongside ours, invisible, like dark matter, but it occasionally ‘seeps’ into our world, creating ghost sightings and apparitions.

Do we, in turn, appear in their world, the past? Perhaps our appearance generates the very story that we are investigating? Or, we cause some sort of chronological damage? A rip in time, that leaks and distorts the here and now, a connection with all times? Basically, rather than think of ghost sightings as one-off, or occasionally recurring events, think instead that the ghosts are there the entire time, all around us. You just need the right tech, the right place, the right questions, and those connections become stronger.

The Last Crown: Blackenrock will be released on PC/Windows. A release date still hasn’t been announced.

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.
