Iceberg Interactive and developer Shadow Tor Studios have excellent news for fans of point and click adventure games! Both Barrow Hill: Curse of the Ancient Circle, (which will be released on its 10th year anniversary) and the riveting sequel, Barrow Hill: The Dark Path will be releasing on Steam within the next few days.
The Dark Path features a melding of two distinct worlds with Celtic myth intermingling with the use of modern technology. An ancient Bronze age deity is let loose upon the Cornish landscape. Baibin, a shamanic, mythical creature has been angered that archaeologists have disturbed her tomb and removed her precious belongings that were treated as artifacts.
The Equinox is upon the world, day and night are equal, and Baibin is restless, stalking the world for what’s rightfully hers, willing to get it back at any cost, including human lives.
Lead developer Matt Clark says: “It’s the 10 year anniversary of the first launch of Barrow Hill, my first game, so I thought it was time for a dedicated sequel, back in the original setting for this year’s Autumn Equinox. The old Service Station and Motel have been slowly dragged back into the woods, as nature reclaims the old site. No-one dares to visit Barrow Hill since the original ‘event’, or do they? There has been talk of ‘rituals’ and ceremonies at the derelict motor garage, but the locals are afraid to look further. Maybe you are up for the task?”
Barrow Hill: Curse of the Ancient Circle, including its soundtrack as free DLC will release at $7.99 and the all new The Dark Path at $14.99.
