    Spines tingle and hairs raise as a ghostly new suspense-adventure game for
    the PC haunts retail shelves this week
    

    WESTON, Conn., March 3 /CNW/ -- Got Game Entertainment LLC today
announced that the "The Lost Crown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure" has shipped to
North American retail. Created by adventure gaming legend Jonathan Boakes
("Dark Fall", "Dark Fall II: Lights Out") and his Darkling Room team, this
highly anticipated suspense-adventure game for the PC combines a dense, rich,
spine-tingling story inspired by classic ghost stories with today's modern
ghost-hunting techniques. With an intuitive interface which allows players to
wield the tools of a paranormal investigator, an impressive cast of 3D
characters, actual E.V.P. (Electronic Voice Phenomena) recordings, and
photographs of unexplained entities captured by Boakes while researching the
game, "The Lost Crown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure" brings a frightening story
to bone-chilling life.

    Inspired by the works of Charles Dickens, M.R. James, Arthur Conan Doyle,
and E.F. Benson, "The Lost Crown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure" finds
ghost-hunters Nigel Danvers and Lucy Reubans investigating a tale of horror
and haunting along England's fog-shrouded coastline, famed for its legends of
smugglers, pirates, and ghosts. In a cinematic, richly detailed interactive
world, part black and white, part vivid color, and against a dramatic backdrop
of wind-swept coastlines and crumbling crypts, players are captivated,
taunted, and teased by mind-bending puzzles and interactions with the town
locals, earthly and otherwise. Skills at ghost-hunting and detecting
paranormal activity directly affect how the game continues. While there are
those who seek to prevent the disturbance of that which is buried, for those
players with nerves of steel, and wits to match, discovery of long lost
secrets, previously known only to the dead, awaits.
    "A classic ghost story, whether old or new, should have us believe that
something 'unexplainable' surrounds and influences us," said creator Jonathan
Boakes. "And, if we are lucky, it should scare us into realizing that there
truly are 'more things in heaven and earth' than the absolute skeptics would
like us to believe."
    "The Lost Crown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure" includes the following
features:
    
    -- Spine-tingling ghost story
    -- Realistic ghost-hunting, featuring actual E.V.P. (Electronic Voice
       Phenomena)

    -- Point and click gameplay with both first and third person interaction
    -- Cast of virtual actors to share your paranormal adventure
    -- Local legends to investigate, interrogate, and observe
