It has been 10 years since the 'Barrow Hill Incident', a terrible, unsolved mystery, when several people lost their lives to the force inside the hill. No-one knows what really happened, except you. Something to do with the ancient standing stones, the old Druid Circle. It was built by pagans, millennia ago, for purposes that we can only guess at. Until now.

"You know... you Restored the Balance...Made the offerings... you proved that man has not forgotten the ways of the past."


It is the Autumn Equinox, when day and night are equal, exactly as they were a decade ago. You have returned to the scene of the crime, seeking answers. Could such an event happen again? What trials and offerings await? As you leave the car behind, and step into the dark world of the old woods, you wonder whether you seek the truth, or you are following the Dark Path.


"There is an uncanny atmosphere tonight listeners... But BHR will be your guiding light in the night."


Joining you on your adventure, once again, is kooky amateur late-night DJ Emma Harry. She is worried for her teenage friend, Mia, who has been behaving suspiciously. Emma has heard rumours of rituals, ceremonies and Devil Worship near the old Barrow Hill Service Station. Could Mia be involved? She may have good reason, Mia's brother Ben was among the missing 10 years ago. Is time repeating itself?


"I saw ‘Things’, things that shouldn’t exist in our modern world. An ancient power, disturbed after thousands of years."

The waterfall at St.Nectan's Glen has created a microcosm, a green place teeming with life… and pagans. The rituals and signs of wiccan worship are obvious, with stone cairns, offerings and ribbons everywhere to see. Some are prayers, good will wishes, sad memorials and reminders to others, of their visit. A bit like a pagan pilgrimage.
Trewethet Mill is a wonderfully weird place, and a big influence on the new game - Barrow Hill - The Dark Path. It's an old mill, in utter ruins, perched alongside the stream at Rocky Valley, North Cornwall. High outcrops of slate and volcanic rock loom overhead, creating a microclimate below. The valley is home to 174 types of moss, a few cool ruins and a cave or two.
Golitha Falls - The forest as a place of magic and danger is found among folklore wherever the natural state of wild land is forest: a forest is a location beyond which people normally travel, where strange things might occur, and strange people might live, the home of monsters, witches and fairies.
