The Dark Eye

Adventure Classic Gaming
7 February 2008
  • Excerpt: There are many kinds of horror fiction. There are numerous subgenres, each with a specific set of narrative devices and a certain amount of well-tried clichés. The scares are evoked by showing flashes of horrible monsters, playing with light and darkness, or having terrifying danger to suddenly appear around the corner.

  • Conclusion: The game's developer, iNSCAPE, is unfortunately now defunct and finding a copy might take some doing. I found mine in a bargain bin at a computer show and considered myself lucky to have done so. Despite its problems, fans of unique gaming experiences and Poe alike will find the well-told narrative and haunting atmosphere of The Dark Eye make it well-worth seeking out.

The Dark Eye Review

GameSpot
1 May 1996
  • Excerpt: The Dark Eye is without a doubt one of the most original computer games ever created. Missing are all attempts to re-create interfaces or settings from earlier games, which, in the end, both harms and benefits the overall game. In its attempt to redefine the computer entertainment experience, The Dark Eye never adequately explains the on-screen action as it skips from one point of view to another, and from story to story.
  • Pros: N/A

  • Excerpt: Rien de tel qu'un bon bouquin assis au coin du feu n'est ce pas ? Alors pourquoi pas un jeu vidéo au coin du feu, pour vos nuits d'hiver? Je vous propose The Dark Eye, un jeu vidéo tiré des contes de Edgar Allan Poe, qui vous transportera dans son univers inquiétant. ******** * Le jeu * ******** Le jeu s'apparente à un Myst like basique, c'est-à-dire qu'on se déplace tableau par tableau, grâce à la souris qui nous permet de passer de l'un à l'autre.
