Delve Into Lovecraftian Horror With ‘Conarium’

H.P. Lovecraft is a goldmine for video game properties, whether as inspiration or a direct basis. Add another one to the lineup with Zeotrope Interactive’s new adventure game, Conarium.

Releasing today on Steam and published by Iceberg Interactive, the game takes inspiration from Lovecraft’s famous “At The Mountains of Madness” novella, and follows four scientists and their endeavour to “challenge what we normally consider to be the ‘absolute’ limits of nature.” You play as Frank Gilman, a man who finds himself in Upuaut, an Antarctic base located near the South Pole. The base is deserted, but you soon find out that something has gone very wrong.

Powered by the Unreal Engine 4, Conarium features a deep and suspense-filled story, with tons of secrets and Easter eggs, and a chilling atmospheric soundtrack. Obviously, if you’re keen on learning more about the game, you can check out its website, or visit its Steam page to grab a copy.

  • This looks very promising. Lovecraft’s tales are always less is more in terms of monsters and final solution of the mystery. I hope the game maintains the same level of ambiguity while delivering some genuine thrills!
