Aeriae has announced the release of Leadlight, a free to play survival horror text adventure game coded for the classic 8-bit Apple II computer. The game plays in a browser based emulator for those who don't have access to one of the venerable machines.
In Leadlight you take on the role of 15-year-old Belinda Nettle, a student at Linville Girls High School in Australia's Blue Mountains. After falling asleep in the library one afternoon, you wake from your mundane existence into a nightmare. Your classmates are transformed, nameless terrors seek you out across the schoolgrounds, and traps and tricks threaten your life at every turn.Learn more about the game at the site below.
Can you help Belinda survive this terror-filled night and solve its mysteries? And will there be a new day?
LEADLIGHT is a new game written in 8-bit code for the Apple II computer, but you can play it right here on this website. A virtual Apple II will appear in your browser window and load the game for you. If you use the ActiveGS emulator option and download the plugin, you can save up to four game positions while playing online, and resume from them at any time from the website. You'll need to save the game if you want to explore its dangerous world thoroughly or amass an impressive score! You can also play offline by downloading a Leadlight emulation pack for your system, or disk images for use with a real Apple II computer.
