Loosely based on the famous works of Edgar Allan Poe, the Dark Tales games are always a sure thing. It's always so exciting to discover what story they've selected to base their next game on, although a tiny little part of me wishes they would stick to a more honest rendition of the tale... there's so much great material to work with, couldn't they just add a sliver more of what the original story was about?
Although, I suppose there would be a lot of tragic endings then as Poe wasn't really known for his optimistic and upbeat narratives.
This time, they've selected The Masque of the Red Death to base the game on. The story involves a masked individual murdering the town officials, but instead of a clean cut case of a psychopath on the loose, he's portrayed as more of a liberator of an oppressive and corrupt government. Still, probably doesn't give him free reign to go about murdering folks, but that's up to you to figure out.
