The Excavation of Hob's Barrow is point-and-click horror of the pixel-perfect kind



The term "pixel perfection" gets thrown around a bit sometimes, but in the case of The Excavation of Hob's Barrow (pc) it feels justified. Looks fantastic! The adventure is about antiquarian Thomasina Bateman who, via a mysterious letter, ends up in a sleepy small town with buried secrets. Maybe you're not trying to prevent people from getting in, but something from getting out ?

Well, this is an adventure with underlying horror, with a so-called pagan horror ("folk horror").

The Excavation of Hob's Barrow is being developed by the skilled Cloak and Dagger Games, but a perhaps greater stamp of quality is that Wadjet Eye acts as publisher. The modern champions of point-and-click adventures have brought us Blackwell, Gemini Rue, Technobabylon, and Unavowed, among others .
