Veil of Darkness

Did Darkwood take you back to a great game you played some time ago, or maybe there's a totally unrelated new title coming out that you want to talk about? In any case, feel free to share it here!

Veil of Darkness

Post by JETeran » Tue Jul 29, 2014 7:13 am

A game that, now that I play Darkwood and I have to be real honest, is much more that I was expecting; was Veil of Darkness.

Maybe some of you played it, it was a DOS game for the mid 90', about a guy who's plane crashes in a strange town and he has to collect clues to finish killing Dracula.

Some things that really catches my mind was:
- Each time you pass some part of the game, you receive a line of a scroll that gives you clues to continue your journey
- It's not an action game, is more like a thriller one
- To make things more complicated (and interesting), you have to type the actions you want to do with most of the characters

I had a really great experience with this game. I remember killing Dracula after many and many tries.

Brings me good memories.

Indeed,

Remember playing with my brothers and my neighbor during the night, really got us scared.

Please, give it a try. I have so much time without entering an Abandonware site, but this one looks honest:
