Description
Release date: Valentine's Day, 2016
Downfall

By Harvester Games (developer of The Cat Lady).

There is nothing Joe wouldn't do for his wife. But as they try to save their marriage with a romantic getaway, things go from bad to worse, and from worse... to insanity. In this tale of love, madness and murder Joe will prove what kind of man he is.

But what kind of man is he exactly? A loving husband? A cold realist? A bitter skeptic? An ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥? That is something YOU will decide, as you join him on his journey for redemption...


Please note: This page features info + material (pictures, trailers) for both the original 2009 release and the upcoming 2015 remake.

Downfall was originally released in 2009 as a point & click adventure. It gained popularity, however it was Michalski's first game and the versions available today are still fraught with unfixable errors. Harvester Games and Screen 7 decided a remake would be the best option for a Steam release, and is now in production and should be ready by Q4 in 2015, halloween time if we're lucky. Michalski is working on it full time but we want to stress we're still indies so these things do sometimes take a little longer than planned :)

The remake is fully voiced, an all new original micAmic soundtrack and other artists, mechanics similar to The Cat Lady and updated dialogues, animations and overall excitement! It will also include text for multiple languages including EFIGS and Russian.

The 2009 edition is now FREEWARE. Please note that we do not offer technical support for it anymore. It CAN be completed but be sure to save often as there are still bugs lurking. If your inventory freezes, you may need to click one of the arrows within it to un-freeze it. You can get the game free from the AGS website[www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk] and soon the official website - http://www.quiethavenhotel.co.uk.

The developers stress this game is not recommended for players under 18.

Demo is spoiler-free. If you've played the original you'll see some familiar characters/settings but nothing too revealing of the game. It shows some game mechanics and looks like a relatively unoptimzed piece (frame rate drops even on a i7 4 core gaming processor). I do hope the finished game will not have this problem.
Otherwise - take a look and see for yourself; the full game will come out in just a few days.

Quadcore processor is recommended. I have an age old PC with dual core and it doesn't run all that smoothly, but it does run... and we know it runs super smooth on Michalski's 8 core computer. The specs will be on the Steam coming soon page (which should be online anytime now)

So excited about this game. What are the specs needed to run it? I dont have a very powerful computer, I can run the cat lady so I hope I can run this.
