Lovecraftian graphic adventure Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness announced

Today, PsychoDev has announced their Lovecraftian point ’n’ click adventure Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness, which will be published on Steam by late March (final date to be announced). 

Mountains of Madness is the second entry in the Chronicle of Innsmouth franchise and is set 10 years before the events of the first chapter. Written by a Lovecraft expert, the game is based on the eponymous novella, but features many references to other stories. It also includes many easter eggs that only the geekiest of Lovecraft geeks will get (like Lone Carter’s name himself), and gives you the opportunity to play as the Mad Arab Abdul Alhazred, author of the dreaded Necronomicon, and at some point as H.P. Lovecraft himself.

In this adventure, you play as the investigator Lone Carter, who comes back home after an encounter with the Mythos only to find himself in a complex plot that intertwines different characters, places, and even eras. A mystery story involving a series of deaths and disappearances, where your skills as a detective will face the cosmic horror and dread of the Cthulhu Mythos – you need to find the truth, but the truth might be too much to bear.

Key features

  • A mature, horrifying story, combining the thrilling mystery of a detective story with a cosmic horror setting.
  • Inspired by The Mountains of Madness, but with many original elements to surprise you at every corner.
  • Test your wits and deduction skills with clever puzzles, logical but challenging.
  • Interact with many characters, both original and taken from Lovecraft’s works. Play as detective Lone Carter, but also as iconic Lovecraft characters as Abdul Alhazred – and even H.P. Lovecraft himself!
  • Retro art style, inspired by the early ’90s Lucasarts classics.
  • A brilliant unsettling original soundtrack, full of tension and mystery, to underline the disturbing events of this story.
