Dolmen is a HP Lovecraft inspired Souls-like with guns

Posted on June 11, 2021

Announced this morning from publisher Prime Matter, Dolmen is a new third-person action RPG taking place in a unique cosmic horror sci-fi universe.

Dolmen looks to combine melee combat with ranged weaponry, all with a HP Lovecraft influence, while tying in to modern pop culture. From the gameplay we’ve seen, it definitely gives off Souls-like vibes, while perhaps not being quite as difficult. As the story goes, you need to overcome vicious bosses and survive in hostile environments, as the unique story reveals secrets of a mysterious crystal called Dolmen. Excitingly, the game will also feature multiplayer.

“Koch Media have helped thousands of developers to create fantastic worlds with incredible stories. We are proud to be partnered with such a prestige publisher and be part of their story. Everyone at Massive Work Studio is working hard to deliver the players an unique experience, so they can unveil this massive universe we are creating.” stated Larissa Villard, Producer at Massive Work Studio.
