Arkham Horror is the game that brought me into the table top atmosphere. Based off of H.P Lovecraft’s early 1900 horror stories, the game itself has it’s own world of shops and characters to learn from. Lovecraft thought the scariest story to be written is to focus on the fear of the unknown which often included weird entities that once seen took away your sanity. Cthulhu is one such creature that is the most popular from his stories possibly because of his gigantic size and fearsome appearance. Focus Home Interactive is creating a game based on Lovecraft’s New England world with a probable appearance of Cthulhu. I watched the new trailer yesterday and I’m pumped. You can watch the trailer yourself down below.
“Mr. Pierce have you questioned your own sanity? Maybe you should!”
I’m not usually into horror games, but this one appeals to me. I think what makes H.P. Lovecraft’s stories stand the test of time is how he appeals to the quest for knowledge that humans naturally have. Mr. Pierce is only trying to find out what is happening to these people and why they’re having dreams from under the sea.
There is no release date as of yet, but I’m anxiously awaiting to play it and to be scared of the all mighty Cthulhu.
