Bracken Tor: The Time of Tooth and Claw. New game!

Just a quick post to say how excited I am by Shadow Tor Studios new game, Bracken Tor: The Time Of Tooth And Claw. It looks to be quite a chilly, creepy experience. Graphics-wise, the thing looks the biz! Well done Matt.



Here's some details:

Explore the desolate moorland, searching for evidence.
Travel back in time, to The Bronze Age, to learn its secrets.
A complete interactive world; brought to life on your PC.
Environmental sounds and weather to heighten the experience.
An unnerving and eerie soundtrack, to chill the blood.
Experience virtual archaeology, and uncover the past.
Survive beast attacks using items close at hand. Defend yourself!
Glean clues from newspaper articles and local radio broadcasts.
Solve a bloody murder through investigation and detection.

I had better get back to working on Dark Fall: Lost Souls. Looks like I have stiff competition in Cornwall, when it comes to spooky adventure games. That can never be a bad thing.

See you at Bracken Tor. Bring a thermos of tea, and a sharp tool...looks like we will be digging in the dirt, and possibly defending ourselves from something nasty...with claws...and teeth...and greasy black hair...oh, that's the average Cornish Landowner, isn't it?!

Matt Clark should have a blog, especially given how quickly, and effortlessy, he (seems to) make adventure/horror games.

But, it doesn't look like there is one. Sadly.

I've seen some 'live' scenes from Bracken Tor...and they look the biz...really atmospheric...so, I for one would love to learn some of his secrets. Come on Matt, share some techniques and know-how.

Sounds awesome! Is this game out already or about when is it supposed to be released?

Jonathan Boakes said...

Hmm, not too sure about release date, but it is this year...at some point. I'd expect it around Halloween.

Barrow Hill was so much fun and that nighttime darkness and creepiness made you reluctant to take another step. And I found much comfort in Emma's voice during that long night (pretty smoky and sexy as well). I am really looking forward to Braken Tor and I hope Matt creates a blog as well. I have so enjoyed checking in on what Jonathan has been up to and reading about his descriptions of things. You have a gift in writing as well Jonathan.
