Darkness Within is a series of adventure games inspired by famous horror writer H.P. Lovecraft.
In "The Dark Lineage", the second installment of the Darkness Within series, players again take
the role of police detective Howard Loreid, who suffered from the paranormal happenings around
him in the first volume
“In Persuit of Loath Nolder”. Now, Howard discovers that his own horrible past is connected
with the madness that is about to swallow him. This second volume will see the Darkness Within
saga come to its conclusion.
The Dark Lineage will take you to places where the "things" of the past still live, and all the
memories that should be long-forgotten are still remembered; including a drowsy, depressive
town called Arkhamend, a Victorian mansion that hides a lot of horrible secrets, a dilapidated
building inside notorious, snow-clad woods and dim underground buildings and tunnels.
The Dark Lineage is even more frightening and stronger than the previous installment so
prepare yourself for the descending darkness, this time it will be ultimate.
