Get ready to go insane! Focus interactive has announced an officially licensed Call of Cthulhu RPG Investigation game called Depth of Madness. Here’s what they say about the game:
A Private Detective, Edward Pierce is a mission to find the truth behind the death of an acclaimed artist and her family on a backwater island. Pierce is used to trusting his instincts, but with whale mutilations and disappearing bodies, this is only the beginning as reality becomes skewed.
Sounds like fun. The last official Call of Cthulhu game, Dark Corners of the Earth (2005) was flawed but had a few very memorable sequences that showed what could be done if you managed to overcome the urge to turn the game into a shooter. With the prolific Cyanide Studio developing it’s difficult to predict how this might turn out. They’ve had some hits over the years but they’ve had their fair share of underwhelming releases. Still, more Call of Cthulhu is always a good thing.
