From the deepest, long-forgotten passageways to the vaulted eaves of the highest towers – there you will find his creation. For he is the Plague Lord - a monstrous, sentient mass of weeping pustules, proud emanator of an all-encompassing evil. It would be his most perverse pleasure to watch as you slowly succumb to the agonising torment of the Plague... Along with fifteen new castle locations, three new playable prisoners, and a new boss, this expansion for Escape the Dark Castle introduces an entirely new mechanic to the system – Plague! Prisoners will now encounter Carriers - plague-infected lunatics bent on spreading the disease. Prisoners can contract, spread, and even succumb entirely to this rampant atrocity, adding a new dimension and weight to the game’s risk-reward decisions.
