The Dark Half

Symtus, 1992

Based on one of the most thrilling novels ever written, The Dark Half brings horror writer Stephen King's most frightening vision to the PC screen. You play Thad, a gentle and mild-mannered author who writes horror novels under a pen name in order to protect his privacy. But when a blackmailer threatens to expose you to the public eye, your fictional alter-ego emerges and takes revenge. Worse still, he happily leaves you to take the fall, as you are the prime suspect in the murder. Your job as Thad is to prove yourself innocent and destroy your evil alter-ego before he can kill again. In game graphics and music are reasonably good and bring life in the scene while making the game worth playing.
