If you’re like me who’s in to anything Lovecraftian Horror (from the works of author H.P. Lovecraft), you might want to look into The Innsmouth Case, a new entry for the Nintendo Switch, iOS and Android by publisher Assemble Entertainment.
For those who’s not familiar with the fluff of anything H.P. Lovecraft, his genre focuses mainly on cosmic, unspeakable and unimaginable horrors that instead of taking that “shock factor” that you would normally expect, Lovecraft’s work mostly takes a toll on someone’s mind and mental state if ever you come across or dig too deep with his mythos, the most popular one being Cthulhu himself – that for the longest time became a staple in geekdom.
This time though The Innsmouth Case takes on a different twist as they inject a bit of humor into the mix, here’s what they have to say:
The Innsmouth Case takes players on a truly harrowing, humorous, and fantastical journey where nothing is what it seems. It’s a game of cat-and-mouse with sinister forces in the tenebrous town of Innsmouth, a place packed to the gills with nameless horrors, and it’s your job to stay alert, stay safe, and solve the case of the missing girl. To solve the enigmatic disappearance of little Tabitha Marsh, the most clever detective is not only wanted but desperately needed. Unfortunately, that particular detective is busy, so the case goes to you! Pack your belongings and prepare to head to the remote fishing village of Innsmouth, as The Innsmouth Case awaits!
Crack the Case and Save the Girl…It’s the Only Way to Survive Innsmouth!
The Innsmouth Case features a mix of horror and humor, making it the first scary-comedy-text-adventure of its kind. A game in which every decision counts, and there is far more than one way to successfully solve the case…or fail miserably.
