Magrunner Dark Pulse is one of my favourite crowd-sourcing pitches: a first-person puzzler set in the future, only with Cthulhu Mythos. They explain: “In the near future of 2050, a handful of brilliant young citizens are chosen by the Gruckezber Corporation to enter the Magtech deep space exploration training program. What begins as the opportunity of a lifetime soon descends into madness and cosmic horror!” So it’s Lovecraft vs Portal. Yeah. Anyway, it’s been a while since we heard from them – the project was funded last summer – but now they’ve sent word that they’ve launched a shiny new website, complete with a devblog which will apparently be regularly updated with information about the project. Expect more information soon, via the magical medium of an RPS interview. In the meantime, there’s a glimpse of gameplay footage here.
