Eldritch expanding to The Mountains of Madness


4:30 PM on 12.06.2013



The endlessly creepy Eldritch will receive a free expansion later this month entitled "Mountains of Madness," based upon an H.P. Lovecraft serial of similar name. The original story describes an Antarctic expedition which meets with disaster upon the discovery of a lost city once inhabited by a forgotten and terrible race of beings. It also features six-foot tall penguins, the thought of which is almost as frightening as the Elder Things themselves, and the above teaser trailer confirms their presence in the expansion.

I really love Eldritch, unforgiving and cruel as it can be sometimes. I've still yet to have circumstances align themselves in such a way as I can actually complete the game, but the challenge it presents is so satisfying that I barely notice my failures before I've set off on another attempt. More of this is a good thing.

Mountains of Madness will release on December 19.

How to correctly play Crypt of the NecroDancer

I've been playing Crypt of the NecroDancer, and now I fancy myself a pretty amazing player. The game hits Steam's Early Access program in just two days, and so I figured I'd impart my wisdom unto any new players who may be out there by making a hawt tipz video.more
