Lovecraft's Untold Stories out on Steam now, GOG release coming soon

More On: Lovecraft's Untold Stories

Russian indie developer Blini Games has released version 1.0 of their horror roguelite Lovecraft's Untold Stories. The game lets you take control of 5 different characters, and explore a variety of health and sanity-testing dungeons. If you can keep your fragile mind and body together long enough to study the Great Old Ones and defeat their cultist minions, you might stand a chance of defeating Dagon or even Cthulhu...but then again, "that is not dead which can eternal lie."

Lovecraft's Untold Stories is out of early access on Steam and you can pick it up there for $14.99. Unfortunately the GOG release is still technically in development; Blini Games is a pretty small team, and it will take them a little longer to get the final version ready for the GOG platform. You can read their official explanation on the GOG forums over here.

I bought the game on GOG a couple weeks back and I've been really enjoying it. It's tense, it's challenging without being unfair, and Blini Games clearly know their Lovecraft well.

GREAT CTHULHU AWAKES TOMORROW


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


Welcome, investigators. Dire news -- the time has come. There is no mistaking the signs. Tomorrow, Great Cthulhu shall awake and emerge from his watery tomb in R'lyeh. With him, the Great Old Ones shall rise, and they shall reign over the world, for humanity's despair. That is... unless you do something, unless you find a way to thwart their plans. Lovecraft's Untold Stories will be launched tomorrow 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.
