Dark screenshots and and super-generous minimum PC specs released today

More On: DARK
What does a vampire need stealth for?  They're generally portrayed in popular culture as being stronger, faster, and generally better than baseline humans.  A vampire should be able to take what it wants with no regard for consequences or its own personal safety beyond the typical vamp concerns of sunlight, garlic, holy water, and silver.

Such is not the case in Kalyso's upcoming stealth-action-vampire game called Dark.  Dark is set for release this summer for the PC and Xbox 360 and features vampires that must rely on the shadows to survive.  Today's new batch of screenshots shows off the game's quasi-cell shaded look.  I'm assuming it's thanks to that art style that the just-released minimum specs for Dark are so relaxed and groovy.  They are: Windows XP SP2, a 2.0 GHz Dual Core, 2 GB System RAM, 5 GB free HDD, a DirectX compatible sound card, a Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT/ATI Radeon HD 4670/Intel HD Graphics 4000, 512 MB RAM.  

Even my PC, which was cobbled together for 150 dollars from my neighbor's menagerie of left-over PC components meets that.
