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.

Remember Triple Triad in Final Fantasy VIII? Check out Eminence: Xander's Tales

Back in the day when I first played Final Fantasy VIII, I fantasized about a world in which people could walk up to random strangers, ask to play a card game, and be treated to one without it being weird. We are not there ye...more

Motorcycle combat racer Road Redemption on Steam Early Access

It has been a little over a year since the Road Redemption Kickstarter campaign launched, and to nobody's surprise, it has slightly missed its projected August 2014 launch window, but it is not too far behind yet. The Road R...more
