Darkest Fear for iPhone summer 2009

It's confirmed we started development of an iPhone version of Darkest fear and we should have it released by mid-august.

We are going to revisit Darkest Fear one from our java series but with greatly enhanced graphics for the iPhone and new controls.

Any thoughts on what you the public would like in the game will be noted, please get in touch with your thoughts.....

What your Darkest Fear?

So DF is going 2D or 3D?

I said this in the other thread before:

Finally, get the lighting effects down perfect, but that's no problem for Rovio!
My darkest fear?
Having better eerie sounds and music will help give the game's atmosphere now. Also the screen could come up with interference so you can't see the action for a while, and show something pop up later...

Great news! Please, pay particular attention to comfortable controls and test this on at least one non-gamer. Some very promising titles have stumbled by making the controls non-intuitive and the difficulty too hardcore. Better nail the first and have options for the second from the start.

BTW, does DF series have a substantial story component?

The game is going to be nice 2d graphics, we looked at free roaming but decided to stick with moving by squares because the puzzles wouldn't be as good in free roaming.

The game is going to have all new sound components to create a creeper atmosphere.

The easter eggs "might" not be in the game at release, but we could put them out as a later update.

We're trying out a few different ways to control the characters and we'll definitely get some non gamers to test out the feel. Also the game does have a substantial story component

Thanks for all the feedback keep it coming we really appreciate it

What exactly is Darkest Fear? I've never heard of it, but from what you guys are saying, seems like a horror game.

About Darkest Fear:

The mystery begins with an eerie phone call from the wife of Dr. Thomas Warden. She is working in an old hospital mansion and begs him to come and save their child. Darkest Fear defines an entirely new category of mobile games, inviting the player deep into a haunting story of hidden mystery and bitter despair. As Thomas moves deeper into the mansion, he needs to solve several puzzles and rescue patients from the bloodthirsty creatures lurking in the dark. Only light, reflected realistically from walls and mirrors, can save him and his family from a grisly end in the dark.
