Dark Seed

CyberDreams, Inc., 1992

The first of a two part series, Dark Seed tells the tale of Mike Dawson, a journalist and a writer, whose mind has been invaded by an alien presence from the Darkworld dimension. The scenery and creatures of Darkworld were based on designs of Swiss surrealist H. R. Giger, upon whose art the Alien movie series was based. Despite flaws in animation and puzzle design, the haunting beauty of Giger’s surrealist art brings the macabre realm of Darkworld to life.

Sound effects add greatly to the eerie atmosphere and quickly draw the player into the story. This title features full-color, high-resolution graphics and animations and an easy to use point-and-click interface. There are over 75 locations to explore and each one is more interesting than the next. Don’t miss this one!
