Eldritch Crafts Itself A Lovely Mountain Of Madness

a weirdling Christmas time

I quite liked Eldritch, that recent coupling of Minecraft and Spelunky and gravitas-free Lovecraft, and I assure you that I use 'quite' in a positive sense rather than a back-handed compliment sense. It's a 'hey let's just do this' sort of game, a hearty gasp of an idea that coalesced into something brief but satisfying. It did feel a bit content-thin though, and I assure you I use 'thin' in a 'not quite enough' sense rather than 'oh my, how svelte!' one. So I'm glad to hear about that an expansion, Mountains of Madness, is en route, and that it is Sinister Christmas-themed.

No details have been given out, so I might be being tricked into posting about the sort of superficial Christmas-themed update that's going to infect far too many videogames over the coming weeks, as a result of its namechecking one of the most notable Lovecraft tales. All we have to go on is this:

I don't know if it changes the game much or just adds new, Chrimbly art, but hey, rare's the day that I don't want to savage a penguin with an axe. It'll be free, which is something of a relief at this spending-fevered time of year, it's out on December 19 and everything's all white with the world.

I'm so sorry. Have a good weekend everyone.
