DOS - 1992
Description of Dark Seed
One of the most memorable (and few) science fiction- horror games ever released, Dark Seed is an interesting horror/scifi story based on the haunting artwork of H.R. Giger, creator of Aliens. As writer Mike Dawson, you must travel in both the human and alien dimensions to thwart the aliens' evil plans. Interesting premise and outstanding graphics make for an interesting game that unfortunately gets bogged down with too many illogical (and timed) puzzles. A good first effort from Cyberdreams, and much better than its horrible successor Dark Seed 2.

I've tried EVERYTHING people have mentioned but I still can't get past the 'alien seed implant in the brains or whatever' cutscene... After the scene 'small rainbow dots' appear all over the screen. Any idea? Anyone?

when the game crashes (well in my version) hit enter, type darkseed and enter. I read in other places that you have to write "tos" instead of darkseed.
In the version that I have, there are two exe files in the game directory, start.exe and darkseed.exe

I tried changing the CDLETTER file to C but it still crashes after the alien implant scene. it just gets all scrambled and static covered and just sits there

This doesn't work for me as it is, crashed after the starting scene. The fix is to edit "CDLETTER" and change it from D to C. And also start the game using "ds.bat", not "start.exe". Everything works well so far including speech. Hope this helps if you are having problems running the game.

Wow, I remember seeing this one time in Radio shack and thinking it looked incredible. I've still never really played it, but I still remember it from looking at the box. I should try it someday

Hey Guacho, try running it with the .bat file instead of just writing start.
Type: start.bat and it should'nt freeze! :D
I still have a problem, why is there no speech?

H.R. Giger didn't create ALIENS, he created ALIEN. James Cameron (ALIENS director) didn't involve Giger in ALIENS and the film suffered because of it. (Looked like plastic crappy sets as opposed to the awesome Giger sculpted sets and creature from the first film.)
