Story:

Young man David Norton was attacked by fierce snow strom on his
way to his new job outside the town. He crashed his car and was
lost in middle of nowhere and the storm were getting stronger.
Then David saw an big old manor in front of him.
There seems to be no one there for a long time.
So David thinks but it isn't true.
Now David must fight against the deadly monsters and find out the secrets of the manor
-------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------

some of the comments of Phobia: The Fear of the Darkness(from Youtube):


Quote: "The first few minutes of the game lulled me into a sense of false security. I literally shouted out loud in fear when things changed!"

Quote: "This game is really good

This game is scarier than Fear and Penumbra in my opinion cause this one actually made me jump and im not easily scared
"

Quote: "you're goin' to s**t bricks when you're going to see the zombies. I can't play this game even for 15mins"

The game was not bad, but due some collision errors, i didn't liked it, some of the walls were not seamless, and i think it had too many rooms. altough nice job

What errors? I have testet it in three diffrent computer and everything looks nice.
And the manor dont have too many rooms. It gives more free movement.

Yeah thats your opinion. But this game is no like other FPSC games.
This is investigation and searching in big manor. You spend whole game in the manor and got keys in the diffrent rooms and you have to go in most of the rooms in the game. And the game have a map of up and downstairs so that would be easier. And when you play the game a while you remember the whole manor where are the all the rooms, two stairs to the upstairs, library, kitchen and all.
Remember to check To do list by pressing "O".
Read the manual in games folder.
Thanks for the comment!

@Bloody James:
He created it I guess! It's quiet simple... I've been using it myself on a game that I'm developing. But I've been busy with university, can't do much right now.


@Jonez Games:

Oh man! What a nice game! No shooter style, like all Zombie crappy FPSC games I see around here! I'm bored and tired of those games.
It's good to have someone creating different games!

Thanks! Yeah, i was thinking to do something different. This game really is no like other fpsc games. free movement on the manor and nothing to protect yourself against the monsters.

Hi Jonez!!! I just wanted to get on here and put in my two cents. I haven't finished your game yet but what I've seen so far is great. Nice work with the notes, map, objectives. I feel the layout of the mansion is good. You would have to be very careful in using the Penumbra music though. No use opening yourself up to legal action. I feel you have a great game. Its a very tense play and I have jumped a couple times good stuff. In the first level you have done more with very little lightng that most people do with lots of lighting. Something for all of us developers to think about. I will post on here and let you know what I thought of the overall game. Way to make a game and post it!!!
I love scary games so to impress me you've done well!!

Regards,

KillShadow 3 big frothy ones for you

Stop Drop and Roll works on everything but HELLFIRE!!!!

Yeah thanks! The game is made in 2-3 months not in full time
working trough but it took time. Im really interested hearing how
long it takes to finish. Because its not really long but it have
lot of investigation and avoiding monsters. Waiting for your
review when you have finished.
and i maybe do Phobia 2 later with X10 but i will not use Penumbra
music cause im going to sell it maybe. Its going to be longer with
bigger mansion and maybe i put some guns with low ammo and
diffrent enemies. Now im doing an another game(dont know yet if i
even going to do it. But ill let all know if im going to do it)
Its going to be some kind of action\sneaking game.
Really waiting for your review when you have finished and others reviwes!
Thanks!

Have just downloaded and started playing. So far I'm very impressed. I like searching around the house, it's all very eerie.

I really like your cutscene at the beginning of the game.

My only criticism would be the wall texture not being seemless, it makes it all look a little strange, but maybe that is the effect you were going for?

Looking forward to seeing more games from you

That's fair enough, but if it detracts from peoples experience then you should really consider adding different methods of lighting (like a flashlight?).

There is a fine line between atmosphere and playability - darkness can be creepy, but too dark (as people here are saying) and it's just annoying.

Do you mind emailing me maybe 1 or 2 in-editor screen shots of
the top floor? I've been trying to do a mansion redux for a game
based off a book and I just want to see how you laid yours out.
I'm not trying to take your idea... I would also love to buy a
Phobia 2 if it comes out!

Email me at: astekgames@hotmail.com

Thanks

There is a map in hte game of the top floor.

But the game was awesome! Maby some flashlight in the first level or something like that. But I understand why it is dark, and if you get to the second level it kinda fells right too. And I love the searching and everything. The nightmare sequence was great, teh walking scare thing is over used, but it still got me! And the room, it was too freaky, didn't want to go in there! I love all the nightmare things! I should propably try one too. But I am stuck at the 4th level (the level after the nightmare level), if I press "o", it says to check out the room, I go to the room, but there is nothing. Also the map says there should be a bedroom next to the library place, but there is no door .

I love the retexturing work you've done with this, totally took alot of effort to do that, put that noise effect on everysingle texture. and talking of textures: The one wall texture with the Paint.NET effect, wich name I can't remember, under cloud effect, looks weird and it's undeamless... But it's a very good game! With a little polishing it would definetly be a BOTB game!

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

And the wisdom to know the difference.
