Hmmm… This just in from RYM Games:

RYM Games announced today that their videogame formerly known as The Conjuring House has a new name – The Dark Occult. RYM Games’ psychologically-driven horror title has driven players to ear-piercing screams as they run terrified away from the disfigured residents that creep within the walls of the house. The game’s new name was chosen because it effectively conveys the game’s sinister themes and demonic denizens.

The name change was already announced on October 30th, so I suppose we should all be clear that the name of this game is now The Dark Occult.

Now… RYM Games goes on to say:

Additionally, to help players that may not have the, ahem, guts to play through the game, RYM Games has now added Dread Mode to the game. The new default game mode will give players a few more tools to help them through the haunted halls of The Dark Occult, such as higher player endurance, less difficulty, and a map that highlights important areas in the game. For players willing to take a risk and battle the demons head on, Terror Mode will fit their gameplay needs.

According to RYM Games, this is a Dread Mode trailer:


I’ve located developer updates on Steam dated October 26th  and October 30th concerning Dread Mode, which can be patched into versions of the game that are already being played. Please visit the two updates for specific info about this mode. The bad news is that apparently, in order to switch to Dread Mode, The Dark Occult must be started over.

The game is currently available for Windows on Steam .

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.
