So, something interesting and unusual has come to my attention. Developer Robot Pumpkin Games and the publisher who brought us Leisure Suit Larry: Wet Dreams Don’t Dry ( Publisher Assemble Entertainment) are coming together to bring us a choose-your-own-adventure type of game set in the Lovecraftian Universe called The Innsmouth Case. It sounds like a ridiculous game and I’m totally down for that. I mean, come on. Just look at this excerpt from the game description: “A desperate mother, a missing girl and a mystical place – a case could hardly be more challenging. To solve the enigmatic disappearance of Tabitha Marsh, however, the toughest and cleverest detective of all is wanted… but he does not have the time – and so the job goes to you. The mysterious assignment takes you to the remote fishing village of Innsmouth, where nothing is what it seems…"
Features of The Innsmouth Case include:
-Become one with the Lovecraftian world around you, as each and every decision you make has a permanent effect on the ongoing story
-The “interactive book” styled gameplay captivates with its perfect blend of offbeat humor and classic horror
-Your fate is entirely in your hands; a total of 27 possible endings are to be discovered. Are you saving the day - or are your days in Innsmouth, and the world, numbered?
-Explore 21st century Innsmouth, talk to more than 20 animated characters and solve the mystery of the disappearance of Tabitha Marsh
-The Innsmouth Case features a mix of horror and humor, making it the first scary-comedy-text-adventure of its kind. A game in which every decision counts, and there is far more than one way to successfully solve the case ... or fail miserably.
A Lovecraftian game with a smart-ass sense of humor? Count me in. Release date is sometime during Q2 2020 and it’s coming to PC, Mac, Android and iOS so keep an eye out for it. You can check out the store page on Steam if you want to add it to your wishlist and whatnot.
