Dark Visions

leave a comment »

Dark Visions is part Laura Bow, part Alone in the Dark, and part Clock Tower. Strange things are afoot at Dr Mahler’s Manor House/Sanitarium, where you are newly employed. Where is your uncle? Why are the party guests locked in the dining room? Where are the bathrooms? You should probably find this stuff out.

Things are fishy from the start when you arrive at your uncle’s manor. Dr Mahler is nowhere in sight, you’re greeted by an assistant who’s eager to hustle you out of the way into your room, and there’s a strange party going on behind closed doors. It doesn’t take long to decide that you had better search the house for your uncle.

Dark Visions’ 3D graphics are impressive and unusual for a browser game. The length of the game, and size of the house to explore make for a satisfying and immersive experience without dragging on too long. Gameplay is pretty standard for a point-and-click adventure, the three interaction buttons (look, action, walk) are at the bottom of the screen, choose one and click the object or place you want to walk to. The inventory is located at the very bottom, below the text box. There are times when quick action will be required, but you’ll have time to react if you think on your feet.

Dark Visions is a great little game for the browser that feels like a bigger download game. I definitely recommend it if you are a fan of atmospheric gothic horror games.
