Hone Your Lovecraft: Eldritch Creator Spills Sales Figures

By Graham Smith on January 6th, 2014.

A face you can trust.

It’s sometimes hard to gauge from the outside exactly how successful an indie game has been, so I’m always interested when developers release figures. David Pittman, creator of Lovecraftian first-person roguelike Eldritch, has done just that.

What The Cthuck? It R’Lyeh Is A Magrunner Trailer

By Craig Pearson on May 3rd, 2013.


‘A Bit Portalish’ is a genre that I have in my head. It’s not brimming with games, but there are a few interesting ones in there nonetheless.

Cyclopean: The Lovecraft RPG

By Alec Meer on October 15th, 2008.

From Love to Lovecraft… ‘Scott’, mysteriously surnameless lead developer at the newly-formed ‘Team Omega’ over at Iron Tower Studio, kindly drops us a line to let us know he’s working on a turn-based cRPG based on the works of HP Lovecraft. Cthulhu and chums are forever a source of excitement for Men Like Us, so interest = piqued.
