Expect the ultimate B-Movie Trash experience!
Don´t even dare to hope for state-of the art graphics, a proper balancing, professional voice acting or breathtaking script-writing. This here is 100% pure trash, an adventure / shooter hybrid with gazillions of bad jokes, dozens of pop culture references and a hidden, dense net of subversive, intelligent messages related to post-WWII-politics. Oh yes, you need a basic knowledge of pop culture to enjoy the game, and quite some education on politics to really love it, but who cares?

Far more important is:

We got boobies.
We got hookers.
We got Zombies.
We got Nazis.
We got even Nazi-Zombies!

You`re Peter "Pete" O`Brannon, a Private Eye. Sounds fascinating? It isn`t, trust me - unless you find it exciting to hunt down cheating husbands and lost dogs while living of cheap Chinese food in shabby motels. THAT would be what Petes job is all about - but luckily for him, he has a good customer paying his bills. It`s GlobalSecure Inc., one of the biggest insurance companies on the East Coast. More exactly, it`s Samantha "Sam" Miller who runs their investigation department on insurance fraud. She`s tough, she`s intelligent, she`s better than Pete. By far better. But due to the companies Code of Conduct and some very nasty ethic rules, she`s prevented from taking, erm, "semi-legal" steps to gain essential information and proofs. That`s where Pete steps in - for 500 bucks per day + expenses + a nice 20% share of the money the company saves with whatever Pete finds out.

Into the Dark is a playable B-Movie, a trash experience composed out of 60% humor, 30% horror and 10% technical flaws. Enjoy!

Windows 8 users: As Windows 8 treats DarkBasic applications quite strange upon demanding large chunks of memory, we officially don´t support it. We have ran through the game on several Windows 8 systems, we have reports of many players beating the game on Windows 8, but we CANNOT guarantee it works on your side. Buy on own risk and RUN THE INTOTHEDARK EXE AS ADMINISTRATOR WITH COMPATIBILITY MODE WINDOWS 7

Memory Issues:[/b] Into the Dark calls large chunks of your primary 1.85Gig memory block. You may have to turn off FRAPS and Skype to have a proper trash experience, and sometimes you will have to reload an autosave to clear the memory. Refer to the troubleshooting guide for more information!

Into the Dark: Ultimate Trash Edition reviews and comments

So, this Game reminds me very strongly of Postal 2 and as far as this UFO Nazi Thing goes, somehow also of Return To Castle Wolfenstein. The Humour is absolutely awesome and partly borderline (politically absolutely incorrect). The Story is a bit confused and you often have this "WTF? Effect, "because you're absolutely not getting behind right now. Also Ingenious is the Protagnist, who with his Ausi dialect adds one more to the whole Spectacle. Nazis, Zombies, scant Humour, an Austrian and as already described, a Mixture of Postal and RTCW. Negatively, I just noticed that this Game has a Penchant for Crashes and after reloading it, objects are sometimes missing. In the End, however, these are just Faults in beauty that have not really prevented me from Losing the Fun Of Into The Dark in any Way. I enjoyed it a lot And I'm looking forward to Continuing!!!

From a Basic Principle and the Idea, the Game is not bad, quite the contrary, there are not many Games that do not take themselves Seriously and I found that quite funny here too, it just fit everything in, the bad Syncho, the music, the Level design with the Various Posters and Pictures, even the Opponents and Weapons, were suitable. But even if the Game comes across as a Trash Game and at least has a proud Price of €10, you should expect it to run smoothly, but that's almost impossible. Every Time you die and have to neulade or when a new Level starts, the Game crashes, even in Compatibility mode on Windows 7 (I use Windows 10) come up with the same Mistakes. After Installing the Game for the first Time, you still have all The levels in the Speichern/Store menu, maybe so that you can see each Level once. Tested the Game with self-made settings which was also no Problem, but when I checked the Game for Error among the Steam Properties it found a proud 178 Pieces. However, it was exactly the Settings I had made what I personally really surprised, because you change the Brightness and the Controls and it is immediately shown to you as an Error? Even one's own saved Scores Were reset, of course that was also faulty. The Graphics settings themselves are already for howling, the Brightness cannot be changed with a Controller, but there are only 3 Levels to Choose from. The Standard Version that sets the Game is so damn dark that you don't see anything and run 90% against the Walls, the middle Version is so garish that you would think would be there live at Fallout, so I don't want to test the 3rd version in The first Place. In The meantime I no longer have a Mind to test the Game, because unfortunately you can't "play" it and I don't think that the Developers should put out a Patch again for this Product, but at the present Level, at least with me, unplayable ... Sincerely, desused by this Game, Gamer-.-
