Dark Eye, The Inscape / Expert Software 1995

This is an interactive adventure based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe featuring the voice of William S. Burroughs and the music of Thomas Dolby. While experiencing an original Poesque adventure, the player is transported into several of Poe's most famous works including "The Cask of Amontillado" and "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "Berenice". All of the stories are surrealistically rendered with claymation figures and haunting music. You go through each story twice - first as the victim, and again as the perpetrator. As if that's not creepy enough, the game also uses as a framing device an original story that is a very intriguing pastiche of Poe mythos. Burrough's reading of "The Masque of the Red Death" is not to be missed. Gameplay involves clicking on various objects and people to trigger events to advance the story. Despite this limited click-and-watch, the game's haunting atmosphere and style (with unique claymation actors) make it a must-have for horror fans.
