Welcome Back to Quiet Haven Hotel, Where You Will Surely Meet Your Downfall – November 21, 2014  

In 2009, a point-and-click horror game called Downfall was released. Then, in 2012, there was The Cat Lady.

Now, from Harvester Games and Screen 7, comes a remake of Downfall. It will feature several different improvements as well as the same mechanics and gameplay as The Cat Lady.

The original Downfall is a pretty gruesome game. It includes gore, murder, suicide, foul language, dead bodies and crazy people — you get the idea. This isn’t a game for children. (Neither, for that matter, is The Cat Lady.)

For those unfamiliar with Downfall‘s story, it goes something like this…

Joe’s wife Ivy has started acting…well…sort of nuts. Joe decides to take her to a doctor. En route, they encounter a fierce storm and end up checking into the Quiet Haven Hotel for the night.

Things go rapidly downhill from there. Ivy disappears and the hotel changes into a grotesque version of itself, with blood-splattered walls, carnage and scenes of atrociousness everywhere. Joe becomes trapped between reality and nightmare. I’ll leave it to you to discover the rest. 

The remake of Downfall will include all new graphics, detailed animation and a full soundtrack by micAmic. The characters will be voiced (the original game was text-only), with Jesse Gunn as Joe Davis.

So get ready to be grossed out at the Quiet Haven Hotel with Joe and Ivy when the remake of Downfall is released for PC sometime in 2016.

Meanwhile, if you’d like to play the 2009 version of the game, it can be downloaded free from this page (yes, it’s legal). Please be aware, however, that it might not work on later versions of Windows (Vista is the last one officially listed), and no tech support will be offered.

And now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go replay The Cat Lady.

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.
