Creepygrim Horror: Downfall Remake Released

With a demo!

Say, how do you like horror adventure games full of love and death and murder and insanity and red blood splattered on black-and-white scenes? I ask because The Cat Lady developer Remigiusz Michalski has released a remake of his earlier point-and-cower game Downfall [official site]. It's the tale of a man and his wife on a romantic getaway to rekindle their struggling marriage when things turn all dark and unpleasant and, I'd guess, possibly-all-in-your-head. It has a demo so you can see if it's your bag.

I've not played the original release, but have heard pretty good things about it (and The Cat Lady) from folks who like grim grim bloodygrim horror starring people who've probably gone super-murdermad. You know the sort. This remake brings full voice acting, updated dialogue, a new soundtrack, improved art, and a few mechanical bits inspired by The Cat Lady, while removing combat and a few tricky puzzles.

You can download the Downfall demo over here or through Steam.

Downfall is about £9 from GOG and Steam. A Linux version is due to follow later. If pennies are in short supply, hey, the original Downfall is free.
