Description

Five years ago Amy Haven disappeared. The Inspector in charge of the case believed her to have been abducted by a local vagrant named Mr. Bones, but he had no proof. So, he took the law into his own hands and created such 'proof'... and the case fell apart, totally discredited; the Inspector became a pariah in the town, hated even by the girl's parents. Amy Haven was never found.

Since that night the town has deteriorated rapidly. Every day the newspapers seem to bring terrible new stories of street gangs, black magic cults. A miasma hangs over the whole of the once quiet rural community of Dowerton.

Most tormenting to the Inspector is the numerous supposed sightings of Amy Haven centred around the old, abandoned Dowerton station and hotel. Could it really be? Play as the Inspector as he returns to the hotel, hoping to finally find Amy Haven, uncover his dark secrets and simultaneously uncover those of the old Station Hotel.

Dark Fall: Lost Souls is the third game in Jonathan Boakes' Dark Fall series. Although it is set in the same abandoned railway station and hotel as the first game (Dark Fall: The Journal), the story is completely standalone and the entire location has been re-imagined graphically.

Like its predecessors, it is a typical first-person point and click adventure game but features a much darker storyline than previous games in the series. The game includes an 'easy mode' for less experienced players.
