A great Lovecraft adaptation within a technically unimpressive game. A must play for horror fans

Fanatical User

Probably the best HP Lovecraft game I've played (atmosphere and storyline). The gameplay is unfortunately not the best and check pcgaming wiki for fixes and patches to get the game running. Once it runs, it drips atmosphere and immersion into its dark storyline. This is not a direct adaptation of a lovecraft book but a combination of 2 stories, "The Shadow over Innsmouth" and "The Shadow out of Time" Gameplay is FPS combined with detective work for solving puzzles. It also features a unique damage system where if you hurt your leg with a high fall, your bone will be broken, You will limp and hear the bones cracking with each step until you heal yourself. Unfortunately some gamebreaking bugs can appear, so save often and backup your save game
