    Hey everyone,

    Anyone who remembers playing Dark Castle or Beyond Dark Castle when they were younger will be excited to know that a sequel has recently been finished. Return to Dark Castle has been in production for over 10 years and is finally almost ready for release. It will be published by Super Happy Fun Fun, who is headed by Mark Stephen Pierce, one of the creators of the original Dark Castle games. (you can see his initials in the corner of many of the original levels of Dark Castle)

    This game will include all the levels from the original 2 games, as well as over 50 new levels. The actual release date is currently unknown, but will probably be out by the end of the month. Here is the website: http://superhappyfunfun.com/games/gam_returntodc.html

    Also, a Dark Castle Forum was created last year to discuss memories of the original Dark Castle games as well as speculate and discuss about the coming release of Return to Dark Castle. Check it out here: http://z6.invisionfree.com/Dark_Castle_Forum/index.php?act=idx

    Hey Strider,

    Have you checked out the Dark Castle Forum? Registration is going crazy there right now as the release of the game gets closer.

    In anticipation of the game's release, the publisher has released a game trailer to watch.

    The new trailer, along with screenshots and info can be found here:

    Man I have such fond memories of the original dark castle - my roomate had a mac at the time and I spent I don't know how many hours trying to beat that game (never did). "cawwww-cawww-cawwww"

    I watched the trailer - very cool. I'll definitely be checking out the game, but somehow it just won't be the same without my 10x12 dorm cubicle experience :p

    just watched the movie on the web site and it looks superb. Very retro remake and fun too. I had to LOL about the scary monsters! heh. I'll get this later in the year for sure, it'd be a waste of time now as i spend most of my potential mac time with our baby :mad: ;-) ;-)

    Thanks, Strider
