Minor Key Games has announced the release of Eldritch for Macs. Inspired by roguelikes, immersive sims, and H.P. Lovecraft, the game challenges players to find their way to freedom while unearthing ancient secrets, fighting unusual foes, and invoking mystical powers.

What is Eldritch?
Eldritch is a first-person action game inspired by roguelikes, immersive sims, and H. P. Lovecraft.
  • Unearth ancient secrets and find your way to freedom!
  • Sneak, fight, and explore strange worlds!
  • Invoke mystical powers to augment your play style!
  • Randomly generated levels provide fresh challenges and opportunities!
  • Unlock shortcuts to jump directly to deeper dungeons!
What is a roguelike?
Roguelikes are a genre of role-playing games descended from the 1980 game Rogue. They typically feature randomly generated worlds, turn-based combat, and permanent player death. Eldritch's randomly generated worlds and permadeath are influenced by roguelikes.

What is an immersive sim?
Immersive sims are a loosely defined genre of first-person games primarily influenced by the work of Looking Glass Studios. They typically feature robust AI and physics simulations and non-linear levels which encourage the user to play creatively. Eldritch's non-linear levels and open-ended play styles are influenced by immersive sims.

Who is H. P. Lovecraft?
Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) was an influential author in the genres of horror and weird fiction. His most popular works deal with themes of terrible cosmic beings beyond the realm of human comprehension. Eldritch's setting is loosely based on a number of Lovecraftian tropes.

Eldritch is available now for $14.99 and requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later.

If only this looked a little better... or are those blocky pixels supposed to represent Lovecraft's oft-deployed hair-raising non-Euclidean geometry, redolent of soul-shatteringly blasphemous spheres of existence gibbering in the extra-dimensional gulfs beyond the stars? Or, whatever.
