Finally, a Lovecraftian Point-and-Click Adventure Game

If you’re a fan of the works of H.P. Lovecraft, like me, then you’ve probably been wondering why we don’t have many video games that offer that distinct flavor of horror. The point-and-click horror adventure game The Eldritch Cases: Dagon aims to remedy this by filling that Cthulhu shaped hole in many of our hearts, but in order to do this, its developer needs your help.

The game is currently in the midst of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, where it seeks to raise a modest £20,000. With two weeks to spare, the game is still at less than half of its goal — let’s see if we can’t change that.

I don’t expect you to just throw your hard-earned cash at the game, and neither does its maker. If you need to be sold, there’s plenty of gameplay footage, screens and details to help with that. But first, let’s start with a trailer.

The game features two playable characters, support for Windows, Mac and Linux, as well as two languages, German and English. It’s soundtrack is being scored by Jan Kavan, and I have to say, it sounds fantastic. I may have to add that to my ever-growing library of video game soundtracks.

Perhaps what’s most interesting about this game is the fact that it’s the first in a planned series of Lovecraftian games that will feature the same two protagonists. According to the developer, it’s “a bit like X-Files in Lovecraft-Land.” You had me at X-Files.

The game is planned to be the first in a series of Lovecraft-based games with the same protagonists (a bit like X-Files in Lovecraft-Land).

If you’re craving some Lovecraftian horror, you can support The Eldritch Cases on Kickstarter and on Steam Greenlight.
