Barrow Hill

The Barrow Hill Website heralds development of an upcoming adventure game from developer Shadow Tor Studios. The site offers screenshots along with background material more focused on the story than the game, which is set in the rural areas of South West England surrounding a set of ancient Stonehenge-style monuments. Target platforms are not listed anywhere, but following-up we were told it will appear on PCs first, with a Mac version to follow. Here's a bit on the story:
A thrilling storyline will explore the bloody and mysterious history of the ancient stone circle, based atop of the dense wooded hill. From neo-paganism to new archaeological methods, gamers will have the opportunity to take part in the excavation, and unravel the mystery of who (or what) is buried deep inside the ancient barrow. You will not be alone on this adventure, as something nasty is stalking you through the woods…

I seem to remember hearing that due to poor sales there wouldn't be a sequel...I also seem to recall the team being laid off, but might (probably) have that wrong.

I'm with you on liking the game, it was top and really pushed what the Unreal engine could do at the time (think it used the first version after the visual basic editor = crash city!) The only thing that marred the game for me was the end of game 'vagina' you had to fight
