Our top pick of the week?
Call of Cthulhu
Lovecraft certainly had plenty of flaws as a person, however no one can deny the impact he had on the literary world, both in terms of horror and fantasy.
The otherworldly lore he unpacked into this shorts stories, prose and novels hasn’t ever really been matched and the horrors he unleashed on the human imagination continue to impact popular culture today.
It these reasons that we’re excited for a survival horror experience directly based off the works of one of the fathers of horror, we’re prepare to be spooked.
