So if you're looking for a game that challenges your brain AND your courage, I strongly suggest Last Half of Darkness: Beyond the Spirit's Eye. The puzzles are fantastic, the storyline is solid, and I really want to see WRF Studios continue with more entries in this series.

While the debate in the gaming world rages on about what defines a good adventure game, WRF Studios settles the argument with the release of Last Half of Darkness: Beyond the Spirit’s Eye. This game wraps a decrepit and decaying town around an intriguing story and minaciously spooky characters. It tosses in tension-inducing music and ambient sounds, and (most malevolently of all), tense silences. Intelligently clued challenges whose solutions deliver a sense of accomplishment are woven throughout.

Despite the name, this isn't a big studio production. WRF is William R Fisher, who, according to the credits, is responsible for everything apart from the music and additional voices. So Last Half of Darkness: Beyond the Spirit's Eye, is pretty much a one person show. And as I said at the beginning, it's a pretty good show at that.

Ecco un gioco da brividi per gli appassionati dell'horror puro. Enigmi del tutto accessibili, grande atmosfera, ore di divertimento assicurato.

Basically, if you like the previous Last Half of Darkness games, the Stauf series, or even the Shivers games, this is going to be enjoyed by you. I wholeheartedly recommend it. I give this game a B taking into account the problems that niggled in my mind. Other people may well rate this higher.

Adventure-Treff (Oct 31, 2009)
Knarrende Bretter, quietschende Türen, Gemurmel und leidgeplagtes Geschrei. Krähen, die aus dem Nichts auf den Spieler zuschießen, unheimliche Gestalten, gruselige Bilder und schockierende Videosequenzen. Atmosphärisch macht The Last Half of Darkness - Beyond the Spritit's Eye so ziemlich alles richtig. Kritikpunkte sind die leicht verwirrende Steuerung und die etwas unlogisch eingeflochtenen Rätsel. Insgesamt ist dies durchaus ein lohnender Titel für Fans von Gruselabenteuern. Die Spielzeit wird nicht künstlich gestreckt, dürfte aber trotzdem bei mindestens 10 Stunden liegen. Eine deutsche Version ist leider bisher nicht erschienen, die englische Version kann direkt beim Hersteller online bezogen werden.

Adventure Gamers (Sep 26, 2007)
I thoroughly enjoyed exploring every inch of the town and graveyard, and with just enough of the story to start you out, it was fun to find the small pieces of the story and put them together as I went along. The game kept me on edge constantly with its creepy environments, and scared me outright occasionally without resorting to gore or relying too heavily on cheap thrills to induce fear. I rarely got stuck in the game, and even when I did, further exploring often resolved it quickly enough. The game is not perfect, of course, and it succeeds as much because its ambitions are fairly modest, so anyone looking for innovation, rich plot progression, or many bells and whistles won't find them here. But what it does, it does quite well, so if you're in the mood for a very traditional, first-person horror adventure that doesn't try to overreach its grasp, I can certainly recommend this game.

Last Half of Darkness: Beyond the Spirit’s Eye is a game that can be recommenced if you like to be scared, if you are not too hard to be scared, or if you enjoy a bit of nostalgia from old-time adventure gameplay. Otherwise, you may end up judging this indie production as a game that has been lost in time from the 90’s and is released more than a decade too late.
