In Darkseed you are Mike Dawson, a science fiction writer who just purchased a Victorian Home. As you explore your new house, you soon discover that you have bought more than you bargained for.
This game is based upon the artwork of Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger, the artist whose dark vision inspired the intense imagery in Alien, Alien III and Poltergeist II. Giger has revolutionized the look of science fiction forever with his unique "biomechanical" style which depicts the synthesis of technology and biology.
Darkseed is pretty disturbing, not so much as in a slasher-movie horrorfest, but as a story that becomes deeply unpleasant if you allow yourself to be drawn into the story. This is not an "up" title by any means.
