THE STORY

15-year-old Belinda Nettle is studying at Linville Girls High School in Australia's Blue Mountains. After falling asleep in the library one afternoon, she wakes from her mundane existence into a nightmare. Her classmates are transformed, nameless terrors seek her out across the schoolgrounds, and traps and tricks threaten her life at every turn.

Can you help Belinda survive this terror-filled night and solve its mysteries? And will there be a new day?

ABOUT LEADLIGHT GAMMA

Leadlight Gamma is a brand new version of my 2010 survival horror / interactive fiction / retrocoded combat RPG adventure Leadlight. Leadlight Gamma brings the game to modern platforms with new features, content and accessibility.

At the core of Leadlight Gamma is a faithful port of the 8-bit Apple II version of Leadlight. The prose, game mechanics and parser have been painstakingly reproduced, meaning a game played in one version can be compared to a game played in the other.

Leadlight Gamma enhances the experience of Leadlight with the following additions:

GAME RATING

Each time the game is launched, it displays the advice that it is suitable for mature gamers only due to violent and potentially disturbing content. I would categorise it as an MA(15+) game by Australian standards. I encourage parents to help their children make appropriate gaming choices.
