Haunting At Cliffhouse Update

Postby Ghostlady » Thu May 07, 2009 6:26 pm

I seem to have lost the last post about Cliffhouse, so I am reposting...

You play as Sarah, a recent widow who has received a mysterious brochure for a B&B called Cliffhouse on the coast of Washington State, where some of the most dangerous and evil waters exist. In Sarah's grief and despair she decides to get away from it all and drives to the B&B. She arrives early morning.

Image

She enters the house and meets numerous characters, the owners and the visitors.

Image

As Sarah explores the house, she begins to unveil a dark and mysterious story of the people who originally owned the house in the 1800's, the sea captain and his wife. Sarah also thinks she hears music playing at night and sees ghostly images in mirrors.

Image

I think you get the picture. ;)

Music sample Listen to Music

The lighting in the above image is for early morning. Here is the night version:

Image

The story is about the house and the original owners. How it came be built, the tragic events of the people who lived there and the spirits who still inhabit the house. The cross over from present to past. Through flashbacks, the player learns secrets and yet is protected by events happening in the present, since someone or something is trying to scare the player away.

Here is latest image. Click on it to see it full size.

Wow! The pictures are beautiful, GL.
I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process.
It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance? :shock:

It seems it is taking me so long this time. I am working on making it dreamy, and spooky, and lush, and puzzley, and entertaining.

Anything new yet on the "Haunting at Cliff House"? I like the name as my son is named Cliff House. I'm anxious to see the finished product as the last two games were very nice. This one looks like it will be as good or even better!
