The Shade Hallow Manor is a 17th-century mansion in Dark Cloud, which is an isolated town covered in dense fog. Built in 1670 by a legendary author named Shade Hallow, the estate is now an unkempt eyesore. In his day, Mr. Hallow was beloved and treated as royalty, as his literary works were loved by all.
Shade Hallow Manor has elegant architectural features, albeit they have been weathered throughout the years. Weeds have replaced the flowering shrubs and ornamental trees that once adorned the property. The final members of the Hallow lineage passed away in the early 1700’s, leaving Shade's estate in the hands of the townspeople. The people have neglected the place, mostly due to the legend that Shade Hallow’s ghost roams the corridors at night.
A majority of the townspeople have banned together and hope to remodel and reinstate the property as a historical bed and breakfast. They believe the old estate can generate tourism and income for Dark Cloud. Most people stand behind the idea, although a few are adamantly against the pursuit – claiming the manor’s haunted and should be left alone.
Most of the dusty cobwebs have been swept away, and the Halloween bash is underway. You live in Dark Cloud and are on the fence with whether or not you support the idea of hosting an event there. You have been invited to attend, and this is where your story begins…

We did this Dark Cloud mystery party for my birthday! It was fun and detailed. The whole family ebjoyed dressing up and getting into character. I am glad we started a week out because everyone had time to make their character their own. We will be doing this again! Rachael on Sep 6th 2020
My friends and I enjoy a good murder mystery. We all dress up and really get into it. This was a great story and had a lot of us fooled til the very end. It was so easy to order this game online and then download the information for the parts, characters, costumes and narratives. Pretty easy to follow. The company will assist you if you have trouble with part of the story. We didn't need any assistance. But there were lots of fun and laughs! We decorated the house, but you don't have to. I will look to the company again for our next one! Thanks! Deb on Oct 28th 2019
This was the first party that I hosted, and I wanted something that was going to be challenging since our party was older teen and early 20 somethings. Well this was fantastic. I was a main character and had no idea what was going on which I loved. Since it was our first time it was rough around the edges, but it was the best party I've had in a while. It was also more difficult than I was expecting, and yet some of the guests still got it correct. Plenty of red herrings and the black mail notes were so cool. 100% would reccomend.

This is probably the 5th one I've ever hosted and it was a great one. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Even the older guest had a great time! Daisha Garcia on Jan 15th 2017
