The Strange Disappearance of Eldon Crowe is now live on Armor Games!

The Strange Disappearance of Eldon Crowe, Armor Games

The Strange Disappearance of Eldon Crowe is an old-school, retro 4-bit style horror-themed adventure game, (It’s a point n’ click adventure, but without all the pointing and clicking. All interaction is done purely by walking over items and up to objects).

Your story begins as a journalist investigating a number of mysterious deaths and disappearances at a remote location. You travel to a large country house in the middle of the North Wales countryside to see if you can get to the bottom of all the strange events.

As you begin to explore the house and start to discover the house’s hidden secrets, the dark and disturbing truth begins to unfold as you learn what really happened to Eldon Crowe, and what’s behind the strange events.

You must find and use items to aid your exploration of the house and its grounds. The player can only carry one item at a time, so they must pay close attention to the clues to figure out what items are needed for each puzzle. For this reason, the clues and description of the objects are quite clear to avoid the player having to just guess.
