game release date for PC:
Dark Seed is an adventure game on the verge of horror. We play the role of Mike Dawson, who buys an old Victorian estate in Woodland Hills in order to find a suitable place to write a new book. As is usually the case in this type of story, just after crossing its thresholds, a series of unforeseen accidents begins, in which foreign people will be involved, serving people with implants in their brains.
The biggest advantage of the game is its graphic design, especially the background by H.R. Giger, a Swiss artist who gained international fame mainly thanks to the alien character project for Ridley Scott's film. Although none of the pictures were prepared especially for the game (Giger simply browsed through his old works and chose the ones that will fit the most), they simply look great. The character of the main character is already digitalized and does not raise any major objections either. It is worth noting that one of the designers of Dark Seed in the company Cyberdreams took part in it. Mike Dawson is also his real name.
To solve the mystery of a mysterious dream, which begins a real nightmare, our hero has three days. It is significant that the decisive factor in the development of accidents is the passage of time. Generally, in order to move the action forward, you not only need to find out how to use the items and who to talk to, but also when exactly you need to do it. This causes a lot of stressful situations, all the more so because the program does not signal in any way that the necessary steps have not been taken for further development. In addition, in Dark Seed, items often disappear. For example, if you don't buy a bottle of whiskey the first time you appear in the store, then it will no longer be available. It would be less frustrating if it were not for the fact that this alcohol is necessary to complete the game. It's a pity that the player learns about it too late.
