HAVING been endlessly questioned and heavily sedated, Aaron Boone tried to take his own life. Somehow his psychiatrist had concluded that he was responsible for 11 particularly gruesome murders - none of which Boone could recall. As he lept in front of the oncoming truck all Boone could think of were the grotesque pictures Decker had shown him. Anyone who could perform such buthery did not deserve to live - the truck hit.
Boone regained consciousness in a white room. Where was he? Heaven? Hell? No, having been struck by the truck, Boone's body was thrown to the side of the road. He had been rushed to the local hospital with no more than a few serious bruises to show for the suicide attempt.
It was while Aaron Boone convalesced that he encountered a somewhat disturbed character by the name of Narcisse. It was from this strange being that Boone first heard of a place known as Midian, a hidden city where monsters of all demoniations live in peace. Decker, Boone's psychiatrist, had convinced him that he was indeed a monster. Midian seemed the natural place for him to go. That night, Boone escaped from the hospital.
Using Narcisse's somewhat sketchy directions, Boone found his way to an abandoned cemetery. Surely this could not be the place. It was then that Boone felt a sharp pain in his shoulder. Someone or something sank their teeth into his already battered body. Running for his life, Boone managed to escape the clutches of his attacker only to run heading into the hands of Decker and the police. Boone heard a volley of gunfire and fell to the ground, dead.
You play the role of Aaron Boone in search of the wondrous world of Midian. The game follows the film's storyline to the letter and as you progress further into the game you will find yourself in some pretty hairy scrapes. Your ultimate goal is to prove your innocence and reveal the identity of Mak, the real killer, to the world.
In order to succeed you will need to call upon the help of the inhabitants of Midian, the Nightbreed.
The game is controlled via the mouse using a simplistic point and click style method. The action is split into two distinct stages, the road to Midian and the underground city itself. During the game you will be called upon to play various arcade sequences, none of which are too taxing. Ultimately you must win though, otherwise the murders will play on your conscience for ever.
