It’s been a while since we’ve seen an old fashioned adventure game. The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow is that, but it’s also more than a little… strange.
What horror lies under the Barrow
Antiquarian Thomasina Bateman is writing a book on the barrows of England, documenting the treasures she finds buried within. When an intriguing letter summons her to the small village of Bewlay, tucked away in the remote countryside, she sets off by train with her assistant a day behind.
Upon her arrival, however, the mysterious man who summoned her is nowhere to be found. Her assistant never arrives. A stubborn landowner refuses access to the barrow, and the locals are wary of this woman who is traveling alone and (gasp!) wears trousers.
The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow is off to a rocky start. And then Thomasina starts having strange dreams…Wadget Eye Games press release
From Wadget Eye and developer Cloak & Dagger Games, The Excavation of Hob’s Barrow opens the door on terror later this year for the PC.
