Cthulhu rises in a week when Lovecraft's Untold Stories arrives

More On: Lovecraft's Untold Stories

Blini Games offers a word of warning: after 6 successful months in early access, their action roguelite Lovecraft's Untold Stories is set to launch on January 31st, and no one can predict the consequences! Great Cthulhu lies slumbering in R'lyeh, but a group of five characters--a detective, a professor, a ghoul, a thief and a witch--just will not leave well enough alone. They keep busting into randomly generated strongholds and shooting the minions of the Great Old Ones, and an eldritch god can only take so much before he crankily drags himself out of bed and lays waste to humanity, capisce?

Seriously though, this one looks incredibly promising. There are numerous faithfully-recreated monsters from the Cthulhu Mythos, murder investigations, RPG elements, and a sanity system with some real gravity. If your characters don't stave off madness (by doing things like eating chocolate) they will kill themselves to escape the horror. Those are some serious stakes, the kind H.P. Lovecraft actually wrote about. It's a refreshing change from the glut of Lovecraft-inspired games on Steam right now, many of which amount to mildly spooky point-and-click adventures or linear walking simulators.

Check out the trailer below to get a better idea of the game, and mark your calendars! It won't be long until Great Cthulhu awakens from his slumber.

 

ONE WEEK TO GO UNTIL GREAT CTHULHU AWAKES IN R'LYEH AND SUBJUGATES EARTH


Lovecraft's Untold Stories releases on January 31st. What will you do to foil the plans of the Great Old Ones?


Welcome, investigators. Please, come inside -- the night is full of omens and the wind brings strange whispers. As you know by now, the signals are clear. Great Cthulhu is about to awake, for it is written that "it is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die". We've got but one week to foil His plans and those of the Great Old Ones, or it will be the end of mankind. Lovecraft's Untold Stories will be launched on January 31st for €14.99 / $14.99 / £ 11.39 in English, Russian, and Spanish; other languages will be added in the near future. Besides, the Chinese version published by Surefire Games can be found here.

LLC Blini Games is disturbed to announce that after a successful period of 6 months in Early Access, Lovecraft's Untold Stories is now complete and ready for its full release. Follow the path of five different characters (the Detective, the Professor, the Ghoul, the Thief, and the Witch) in their adventures against the Great Old Ones, their minions, and their worshippers. Explore their different storylines inspired by Lovecraft's stories that cross randomly generated levels such as the hospital, the jungle or the port city, and look for the clues you need to face terrible foes like Dagon, Shub-Niggurath, Azathoth, Nyarlathotep, and Great Cthulhu.
