About Darkness Within 2
Darkness Within 2: The Dark Lineage is the second adventure game inspired by the famous horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. Just like the first Darkness Within instalment, “In Pursuit of Loath Nolder”, players take on the role of detective Howard Loreid. As he unravels his own horrible past, he discovers that some memories that should have been forgotten are still remembered and some things still live on. The Dark Lineage is even more frightening and stronger than the previous instalment so be prepared for the descending darkness. This second volume will see the Darkness Within saga come to its conclusion.
