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.

Holmes had an extra long interview with Renegade Kid's Jools Watsham during PAX East, and it covers all the games the small studio is currently working on. It's a nice showcase of every thing they got going on, and biggest of all is Cult County. It's their upcoming survival horror game, and there's just under two weeks left on their Kickstarter.more

See why Mushroom 11 was one of my favorite games at PAX East

Alex Bruce, the man behind Antichamber, was at PAX East with no game to show off at all. He was simply there purely to help out other indies. I saw a lot of indies supporting other indies at PAX, as a matter of fact. In this...more
