Vernon's Legacy is an horror adventure with an enigmatic story that takes place nearly a century ago.

You learned of the sudden death of your uncle two days ago. When you reach the estate of your deceased relative, you find it deserted. Why is Alois the butler not here to receive you?
Something is not right.

You explore the rooms of Dunkenhof Manor in the first person view.
Do not expect this to be a hitch-free stroll—there are puzzles to solve, secrets to unravel, and hidden doors to open.
You can add items to your inventory and use them to interact with your environment.

You keep coming across the effects of the former inhabitants of the place. Their letters and notes reveal to you the events of the past few years.

When you finally enter the centuries-old vaults beneath the house, you realize that a force beyond any imagination lurks here and your life is in mortal danger.Features

Vernon's Legacy reviews and comments

Early Access Review The Short Version: Early Access-agrees (hopefully) Indie-agrees adventure-well, hard to say, but if not a whole Lot changes here yet, rather not Epic-certainly not (good Graphics alone don't make a Game epic, because Is there more to This) horror-not really The slightly longer version: The Beginning (lvl 1) makes a very good Impression, at least in terms of Graphics and Ambience. The "Story" is rather lukewarm-there would certainly be more possible. Why Gears end in tetxrelerless "Nothing" have to come to mind (despite Early Access), however. The biggest Minus Point: I always had the Feeling of playing Pineview Drive. Playing Completely past with Fun And Motivation, it's then from Level 2: Storry or Action zero. The Game seems more like a Version of a 3-D Pac-Man. Just to escape from a "Monster," collecting things that allow you to Advance to The next "Level ..." Now, as already written above, what is supposed to be "epic" about it? ... No idea. Could anything else come of this Game? Well, in a short Period of time probably not. However, the fact that Setting and Initial Storry basically have Potential is undisputed-only unfortunately too little for a Buy Recommendation in the current State.

Vernon's Legacy http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1120399133 POSITIVES + great Graphics (Unreal Engine 4) + chummy Lighting effects + good Sound effects (own steps, Thunder, Rain and other creaky noises) + oppressive horror atmosphere + Puzzles (but a little too light) + Happenings in the estate can be read in various surrounding Letters (in German) + since it is a German Estate are of course also old Newspapers, Book Spins and Maps all provided With German TEXTS http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1120399515 NEGATIVES-control not rezable-diashow-like intro-too many empty drawers (about 90%)-advertised survival elements one searches in vain-super annoying "being" in the Basement that the harmonious Atmosphere Interrupts and destroys-a CTDT in the 2nd Bottom shot-very low Playing Time of ABOUT 3-4 Hours-no Replay value Http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1120399641 FAZIT In the First-person horror adventure "Vernon's Legacy" one visits in 1920 At Metz the Dunkenhof Manor estate of the suddenly deceased Uncle Vernon. More than once I got a real Goosebump While Playing and was frightened by falling Doors or other Events. Items from the Inventory can be used with your Surroundings in order to advance further in the Property. The Legacies of the Staff and uncle, in the Form of letters or Notes, explain Piece by Piece what has happened in recent Years. But There are few Options for interaction and you never have more than two Things in the Inventory at the Same time. Nor do any of the Items need to be combined. They are mainly keys or things like Screwdrivers and Crowbars and the like. Despite the annoying "Being" underground that has harmed rather than served the Atmosphere, the entertaining Game was Fun for me and entertaining me. For the fact that I expected something much worse, I was positively Surprised-especially by the great Graphics. If you are interested in further Reviews of me, follow my Group.
