The Darkness Within returns

The Darkness Within 2: The Dark Lineage is the second adventure game inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s work; players will reprise the role of detective Howard Loreid, as he unravels his past, discovering that some memories would be best forgotten. The Dark Lineage promises to be more frightening than it's predecessor with haunting music and fantastic 3D visuals, and will be the last game in the saga.

Darkness Within 2 features a new, more advanced version of the game engine used for the original, players will be able to move anywhere they want while the game casts real-time soft shadows, and with the power of the NVIDIA® PhysX™ engine you can realistically lift up, push, pull or throw objects, in this immersive first-person Lovecraftian story.

Development of Darkness Within 2 at Zoetrope Interactive has taken slightly longer than anticipated, and for this the official release date has been put back to May 14th 2010.
