Scratches is a new horror game for the PC from Got Game Entertainment. In Scratches you play the role of fame horror author Michael Arthate. As Arthate you explore a haunted old Victorian house called Blackwood Manor. The press release says you probe the creepy house for clues using the mouse.
As famed horror writer, Michael Arthate, you arrive at Blackwood Manor, your newly acquired home, an old Victorian house lost in the outskirts of a small English market town. While the ominous weather bodes of darker days, you are initially charmed by this peaceful and quiet place. The pleasant stillness is soon broken, however, as the rooms of this exquisite, if faded glory, mansion speak of past events, their tales echoing through its walls. As the odd noises in the basement grow ever louder, you set about solving your sanctuary's long-held mystery.
Isolated by a washed out road, and in search of clues, you delve into every dark corner of the mansion and its untended grounds via a point-and -click interface. Examining, probing, and hunting your way through musty rooms, an overrun greenhouse, a sinister chapel, and a forbidding crypt, your investigation deepens, and you slowly become aware of one terrifying fact: you are not alone.
The game sounds like it has a good atmosphere and storyline. It has already garnered a few good reviews. Game Over compared Scratches to Dark Fall and said Dark Fall is the better game. Game Zone gave Scracthes a 7.4 and noted that the low price of $19.99 makes the game an easier risk to try. GameBoomers really liked Scratches and gave it an A+. More about Scratches can be found on the game's official website and on Amazon.com.
