    Nice. I'm keen to see how this turns out.
    I played a few campaigns of the old rpg back in the late 80's/early 90's, and I've grown to appreciate Lovecraft more and more ever since.

    Oh so this is based on the pen and paper RPG? Didn't know that.
    Always interested in good Lovecraftian games, it's a shame there are so few.

    Looking good. I love that game too.

    Call of Cthulhu Dark Corners of the Earth was one of the best terror\horror games.
    Yep, or maybe the other way around...

    The facial animation is.. well, improvable? Takes me right out of the experience, sadly. Everything else seems very interesting.

    I'll skip this one, but if supergreatfriend plays it, I'll watch the whole damn thing. I'm just no good at this type of game, and I know I miss out on some cool stories because of that. Thank god for youtubers.

    Before I saw this trailer, I was afraid it would be yet another "Amnesia" type of game... I am more hopeful now :) GIVE ME ANCIENT ONES!!!

    The voice acting is a bit subpar in comparison with the xbox game.

    It should be on the Switch because the Gamecube had Eternal Darkness and Nintendo owners never got their sequel...

    ...this looks like it would do nicely!

    Thankfully I got a PC or 12 too, so I will not be denied!
