?Dark Fall II: Lights Out Ships With Stunning Strata Images

Action adventure game takes realism to a dark, new place (October 06, 2004)

Strata, the company dedicated to adding a new dimension to the designers toolset, is pleased to announce that Dark Fall II the hot new action adventure game was created using Strata 3D.

Strata 3D has a long history with action adventure games, including being the tool used to create the all-time best selling game MYST. Dark Fall II: Lights Out takes this scary history to a dark, new realm of photo-realism. The game offers more than 50 realistic pre-rendered locations to explore in an unnerving ghost story weaved with multiple subplots. Players encounter a virtual cast of characters and observe and interact with spectral beings in this adventure thriller.

According to Jonathan Boakes, the creative genius behind the game, Strata 3D was a critical part of the development process. ?Strata 3D continues to be a key part of my toolset. The software has allowed me to work from my studio here in Scotland to bring my vision to life and to reach a worldwide audience.

The Reviewers Agree:
?Beautifully done with much loving care? A tightly integrated game, well thought out and brilliantly executed.

?Lights Out offers adventure game fans something that is not only incredibly immersing and graphically beautiful, but at the same time has managed to scare a lot of players with the dark environments.

?Boakes has given us a beautiful, involving and completely original game at a time when ?involving and ?original are scarcities. If you are a fan of ?darker adventure games, Lights Out might be the best $20 you spend this year. MysteryManor.Net

?Lights Out is a worthy follow up to the first Dark Fall. Mr Boakes has created another rich and well paced ghostly tale? Listen to the sounds and embrace the dark. It's a many layered experience.

?Visually, I thought the game was stunning. The gadgets were cool, the ghosts were phenomenally spooky? Jonathan Boakes is reinventing the genre of horror puzzle adventure games, right before our very eyes. A Players Perspective by Brent Blackburn

?Dark Fall: Lights Out is one devilishly delicious game and a serious contender for Adventure Game of the Year. All I can say is keep them coming, spooky man, keep them coming.
