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!
Tonight, we’re playing the excellent “Call of Cthulhu” campaign “Horror on the Orient Express”, and you can watch us LIVE. Even if you’ve never played “Call of Cthulhu”, it’s a lot of fun to watch!
Best known for their 2010 hit “Amnesia: The Dark Descent”. Curious to know more about the influence of Lovecraft on “Penumbra”, “Amnesia” and on their upcoming game “SOMA”, I got in touch with Frictional Games’ co-founder and Creative Director, Thomas Grip.
Tonight, we’ll be playing the Lovecraftian video game “The Vanishing of Ethan Carter”! You can watch LIVE and interact with us on the Lovecraft eZine Message Board while you watch, or you can join me in the room to play the game.
