Where Is That Sound Coming From?
Scratches is an atmospheric mystery adventure game for the PC, brimming with
eerie twists and terrifying surprises. Set in and around a solitary Victorian
mansion concealing a terrible secret, a long since forgotten story from the
past emerges to haunt the present. A careful combination of inventory-based and
deductive-style puzzles, integrated with a riveting storyline, non-linear
gameplay, intricately detailed graphics, and an entrancing soundtrack, immerse
you in a haunting Gothic atmosphere until the final shocking revelation.
As famed horror writer Michael Arthate, you arrive at Blackwood Manor, your
newly acquired home, an old Victorian house lost in the outskirts of a small
English market town. While the ominous weather bodes of darker days, you are
initially charmed by this peaceful and quiet place. The pleasant stillness is
soon broken, however, as the rooms of this exquisite, if faded glory, mansion
speak of past events, their tales echoing through its walls. As the odd noises
in the basement grow ever louder, you set about solving your sanctuarys
Isolated by a washed out road, and in search of clues, you delve into every
dark corner of the mansion and its untended grounds via a point-and -click
interface. Examining, probing, and hunting your way through musty rooms, an
overrun greenhouse, a sinister chapel, and a forbidding crypt, your
investigation deepens, and you slowly become aware of one terrifying fact: you
are not alone!
