This game is awesome.

Too bad that the sequels were cancelled. I remember that there was a whole bunch of them in planning, one of them being based on At the mountains of madness.

i gotta agree that despite it being basically a non-interactive cutscene, the first encounter with hoover scared the frig outta me

Haven't played this one yet, but Alone in the dark (original) and Sherlock Holmes: Awakened were great Lovecraft games...

I did not make it at all far in this game. However, I did like it. Very spooky.

I loved this game. Truly unsettling and more frantic than I had magined, bnamely when the villagers decide to start attacking you. Goddamn that bit is crazy!

Trust me. The game is nowhere near in the same vein as Doom. The levels are varied in interesting and sometimes infuriating ways (When you get to the level where you have to run from some individuals, you will know EXACTLY what I mean). And the sanity aspect itself is enough to buy the game for. Forget "The Thing" PC game, this is where the real question of sanity comes into play and legimately affects the overall gameplay and whether or not you can proceed.

I always wanted to play this game when it first came out, sadly I never got the chance. I'm also bummed that there will never be any sequels to it.

I never played through that game entirely, but as soon as I saw the first screen, I was like "Ahhh...*relieved*...Insmouth". I donīt know how often I read that story (or many of the other Lovecraft stories) but it was certainly a well made game. Lovecraft just has this certain something in his stories, that makes me want to giggle like a lunatic while staring at the stars.

I loved the running through hotel rooms, turning, bolting doors, pushing cabinets and the like.

Fun game, but my save got wiped when I was about 80-90% done. Never picked it up again. I especially liked the shoggoth and Hydra battles.

Hydra battle? Dude, you weren't 90% done, you were 98% done.

Pick it up again. The game can be beaten in less than 3 1/2 hours when you know what you're doing

I love the whole Cthulhlu concept, but I can't ever seem to find any actual Lovecraft stories.

There was a Lovecraft game planned for the Virtual Boy.

What's a more perfect system to display mind-melting cosmic horrors than a mind-melting system?

No wonder Lovecraft protagonists usually kill themselves in the stories...
