Iceberg Interactive have revealed the pack shot for Darkness Within 2: The Dark Lineage, featuring the haunted Howard Loreid who is tormented by his own inner demon. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s writing, Darkness Within 2: The Dark Lineage is a horror adventure game, promising to be far more terrifying than the original thanks to the use of their upgraded CPAGE engine, Lead Designer Onur explains;
The realism factor is directly connected to a scary atmosphere for a game. We also know a scary atmosphere depends on how you processed the 3D capabilities. Large 3D places to roam cannot be the only solution; you need cutscenes and detail. We tried to find a point where we could best use our options. And we believe The Dark Lineage is even more scary then its predecessor.
If you missed out on our interview with Onur you can check it out here, we’ve been following Darkness Within 2 for a while now on Gamercast, and this pack shot definitely whets the appetite, and also follows on nicely from the original game’s packaging, if only they didn't lay such an emphasis on the eyes!! It's eerie! The game is set for a release May 21st, and will be released with localised versions in June for the rest of Europe.
