Cursed Mountain is both the first survival horror game and the first Nintendo Wii game from Deep Silver, the company that gave us the 2006 Runner Up for Adventure Game of the Year and PC Game of the Year in Secret Files: Tunguska. Fellow DHGF staffers Aileen Coe and Chris Bowen had some nice things to say about it when they attended a Deep Silver Hand’s-On showcase in mid August of this year.
In Cursed Mountain, players will take on the role of Frank Simmons as he tracks down his brother, who went missing on a trek into the Himalayas to find an ancient Buddhist artifact. A sensible man, when Frank first encounters the angry spirits of the dead, he dismisses them as hallucinations caused by altitude sickness. But as he ascends the mountain, it becomes clear that something is very wrong… A curse has been placed on the mountain; the dead spirits of the local monks and villagers are trapped in the realm of the afterlife or bardo, unable to reach Nirvana or start a new life cycle. Stuck in limbo, the restless spirits are very angry…
