The Excavation of Hob's Barrow is a classic point-and-click mystery adventure with horror elements.
The main character is Tomasina Bateman, an antiquarian from London that moves to the English countryside to conduct a dig of the Hob's Barrow, a burial ground supposedly rich in local lore.
The entire game is narrated as a flashback from her point of view, as she recollects the fateful events of the titular "excavation".
The game uses a low resolution retro style and stays loyal to the common gameplay mechanics (requiring item combinations and puzzle solving).
For most of its development period, the game was called INCANTAMENTUM, and a couple demo versions have been released under this name.
These versions should work with ScummVM, but are untested.
