Penumbra: Overture gets horror sequel

Penumbra: Black Plague due in early 2008

A follow-up to horror game Penumbra: Overture will release in early 2008, published by Paradox Interactive.

Developed by Frictional Games, Penumbra: Black Plague "will thrust players into a creepy environment of psychological horror, as they are challenged in this unique action adventure experience", is the word.

Black Plague will mark the end of the Penumbra storyline.

"Penumbra: Black Plague is horrific, life-like, interactive and unique and we are thrilled to be working with Paradox Interactive to introduce this game to a worldwide audience, said Jens Nilsson, co-founder of Frictional Games".

"We've worked with Paradox in the past and their support for our vision and ideas has made it possible for us to keep on developing games that we believe in."
