Dark Legends surround the old abandoned Blackwood house, secluded far away in the northern wastelands. For writer Michael Arthate, this cold, solitary atmosphere is fodder for his restless imagination. But Michael soon becomes distracted by the mysteries offered up, as he follows a trail exploring and delving into the secrets of the past. As he is drawn deeper into the story, his sleep is shattered by mysterious noises, and he is plagued by nightmares that cross into reality. Whose shadows lurk in the dark corners? Is that lonely house inhabited by restless spirits of the past or something more sinister? What is that sound that chills to the very bone...scratching? Join Michael in a suspenseful adventure, as you explore beautiful and chilling environments. Prowl dark corners and solve puzzles leading to the solution of a tale begun with obsession, and ending with madness and murder.Features Eerie and immersive story Haunting soundtrack Full 360 degree panoramic viewing Puzzles and challenges throughout Numerous hours of gameplay Explore a Victorian mansion, sinister chapel, forbidding crypt, musty rooms, greenhouse… Director’s Cut includes: An alternate ending that might be more shocking than the original A new chapter: “The Last Visit” will have you back at the house 10 years after the events of the original game Michael’s diary with more clues and thoughts from the main character Upgraded graphics and an eerier soundtrack

Scratches - Director's Cut reviews and comments

So, let's have a little Review for Scratches. It's supposed to be a spooky adventure, but I didn't even feel like getting to the creepy Part. The Mouse Sensitivity is quite high, you feel like you're steering a pretty Drunk man. Points that can be interacted with are sometimes also misplaced. For example, I clicked on a Drawer and the Text "I don't want to sleep yet." The Bed was behind me. At some Points the Game always crashes and so I don't know if I can ever finish playing it. 4/10. Thank You for the Attention:)!

A happy simple per bundle as a charity get, not because the game is bad, but because team once again means to be somewhat awkward and absent in small ones. The game is here in English although there is the 1 to 1 version in German. And should I translate it legally per nice in German he tells me to insert a cd. no-cd crack (which is also legal, by the way) back or forth. Unfortunately, over several ways I just couldn't find a solution to this coding problem by team. Habense just don't pay attention and don't get around it. ;) GG WP and well done < 3 otherwise the game offers a good atmosphere. So much has to be said. I really have to say that it is a secret tip and I really regret the heavy voice-over (due to the very good voice actors and the British accent) not being able to enjoy one hundred percent. Thank you for the freedom team to be able to play my game the way I deserve it. ;D MfG:P

Once upon a time after a rather praise review in the magazine "Iglimania" immediately bought a disc with this game and gladly passed it. Then the standard of the monitor and TV was 4:3, and chic resolution was considered 1024:768. And even in those days the game looked like a delish from perfection in technical terms. However, everything worked perfectly, and I got a great pleasure from this detective story with elements of mysticism, despite the occasional stupor: about every hour of the game came a moment when to understand what the game requires you, did not appear Possible, and I was loitering over all available locations in search of objects available for interaction (yes, the pixel-hunting of this game is not alien). Now, running it, I realized how long it was. 4:3 The format cannot be changed, as is the 800:600 resolution. Graphics Imperfection makes it even more difficult to immerse into the atmosphere of what is happening. But The main thing-there were bugs with management. Periodically, the cursor changes to active when you hover over a static object that you can't interact with, and when you press it, it turns out that I'm interacting with something else on the opposite end of the room. Apparently, due to lack of optimization under modern monitors the script, responsible for changing the cursor in certain "active" places, has ceased to work. To Play this game today-you decide, but be prepared to face a number of problems.
