We’ve teamed up with political satire site Wonkette to create a card game about the US elections, but early on in the process I couldn’t let the opportunity pass to inject a massive dose of Mythos into the design. After all who doesn’t wish to see Cthulhu for President?
Go insane! I’ve added nine more Lovecraftian-themed video games to the Lovecraft eZine video games list.
We’re giving away FOUR “Black Watchmen” Steam keys (over $30 value) to watchers and listeners of today’s show! The game dedicates “a full set of missions to a Lovecraftian creature, who, in the mission, has escaped out into the real world, requiring that the players intervene.”
I have tried to make some varied selections of items off the beaten path, some enjoyable by anyone and some for the discerning Lovecraftian. Anyway, take this is the spirit of the Cthulhumas holidays!
“Something terrible has begun to awaken within our museum… a something unsatisfied with mere exhibition or human study, writhing with ancient evil and terrible purpose. An entity that must, at all costs, be prevented access to our world…”

I added three more games to the Lovecraftian Video Games page — see the list here!
The worlds are named for, and very loosely inspired by the work of, Shelley, Keats, and Byron. However, the inhospitable wastelands and ruined cities you’re given to explore bear as much resemblance to Lovecraft’s Yuggoth as they do to, for example, the apocalyptic and funereal world of Lord Byron’s Darkness.
For those desiring an incredible game with many inspirations from Lovecraft’s works, as well as a unique story of its own, “Bloodborne” will not disappoint.
Kingsmouth is a sleepy seaside village located on an isolated island in the American North East. I won’t go into the history of the town because playing the game will have you explore that history and the strange cults and secret organizations that have dwelt there since its inception. Strange monstrosities come ashore in Kingsmouth. Hideous and barnacle-encrusted, they are slowly taking over the town…
A story about a man, obsessed with finding the hidden secrets of his old, venerable family estate. Upon spending the family’s entire fortune and unearthing a demonic portal of doom, the estate is crushed and consumed by evil.
“The Last Door” is a pixelated horror adventure game inspired by the works of H.P Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, and a tremblesome assortment of other authors of Gothic horror and weird fiction.
Sandy Petersen’s latest masterpiece CTHULHU WARS just arrived at my house. And yes, it’s awesome. Photos in the post; view at the risk of your sanity!
