With worldwide sales of the independently developed "Scratches" at over 150,000 units, legions of fans, plus brave newcomers, will experience an exciting new chapter, a much rumored alternate ending, over two additional hours of gameplay, new clues, higher supported resolutions, enhanced graphics, plus much more.

In "Scratches: Director's Cut", a careful combination of inventory-based and deductive-style puzzles, integrated with a riveting storyline, non-linear gameplay, intricately detailed graphics, and an entrancing soundtrack, immerse you in an even more haunting gothic atmosphere. As a famed horror writer isolated by a washed out road at the dark and mysterious Blackwood Manor, you search for clues to a long-held mystery. Exploring every dark corner of the mansion and its untended grounds via point-and-click interface, you examine, probe, and hunt your way through musty rooms, an overrun greenhouse, a sinister chapel, and a forbidding crypt. As your investigation deepens, you slowly become aware of one terrifying fact: you are not alone.
In addition to a breathtaking conclusion to the story in a new chapter that will stay in your nightmares for months to come, "Scratches: Director's Cut" also features new, revealing thoughts from the main character in "Michael's Diary", and an alternate control method with fixed mouse, FPS-like movement.
