Another upcoming title that a trailer was released for during E3 2016, we have for you a trailer for a video game that’s based on a pen and paper role-playing game that’s based on the Cthulhu mythology crafted by H.P. Lovecraft and others.
The game is titled Call of Cthulhu, and it is an investigative RPG in which you play as a private investigator looking into the mysterious death of an artist. You can read more about the game and check out the trailer below.
The Cthulhu Mythos has grown to become one of the largest shared universes ever envisioned, giving birth to countless stories, novels, and even movies ever since the original publication of Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu.
The game will take players to Darkwater Island, a grim, disturbing place and let them control Edward Pierce, a former war veteran and private investigator in 1920s Boston. He will be investigating the tragic and mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins, an acclaimed artist who has moved with her husband and their family to Darkwater Island.
Call of Cthulhu will offer a dark and oppressive ambiance that shall pay tribute to Lovecraft’s work and universe. This banal investigation might indeed lead you to more sinister forces and darker secrets buried deep within Darkwater Island.
Call of Cthulhu, the official video game adaptation of Chaosium’s emblematic pen & paper RPG developed by Cyanide Studios, is a RPG-Investigation title, packed with psychological horror and stealth mechanics.
Looking forward to it!
