In celebration of its 10-year anniversary, Barrow Hill: Curse of the Ancient Circle and its brand-new sequel Barrow Hill: The Dark Path have released this week on Steam.
The Barrow Hill games are point-and-click adventure titles. Barrow Hill: Curse of the Ancient Circle, includes its soundtrack as free DLC and is priced at $ 7.99. The Dark Path is priced at $ 14.99. Both games are currently running a special promotion of a 20%-off discount until September 29.
“It’s the 10 year anniversary of the first launch of Barrow Hill, my first game, so I thought it was time for a dedicated sequel, back in the original setting for this year’s Autumn Equinox,” lead developer Matt Clark said in a press release.
“The old Service Station and Motel have been slowly dragged back into the woods, as nature reclaims the old site. No-one dares to visit Barrow Hill since the original ‘event’, or do they? There has been talk of ‘rituals’ and ceremonies at the derelict motor garage, but the locals are afraid to look further. Maybe you are up for the task?”
“Follow the Dark Path into a world of Druidic lore and Celtic myths. It is the Autumn Equinox on Barrow Hill, a time of great power, when the ancient standing stones are at their most powerful and dangerous. You have one night to make the offerings, follow the Dark Path and escape Barrow Hill,” The game’s Steam description reads.
