Late game I played from cyanide was Call of Cthulhu.

A real shame in my opinion. Typical not surprising history, 0 real investigation, 0 combat, totally driven and 0 replayability.

Is this company style, my expectations are 0. The good part is this game can't dissapoint me.  :rofl:

The problem with all lovecraft-inspired movies and games: they use tons of special effects to show a kind of horror which is supposed to be seen the least possible and felt the most possible through plot and ambience

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth?

Argikt, that game is routinely referenced as the best Lovecraft game among the Lovecraft fandom.

My mistake, I mixed the two studios. It is not Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth.

Iä! Iä! Cthulhu fhtagn! Ph'nglui mglw'nfah Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

Then what was the best lovecraftian game (according to the fandom)?

I agree, Call of Cthulhu was just a glorified walking simulator. If the same people make the werewolf game, ughhh.

Yeah, Werewolf the Apocalypse game would really suck if it was developed in the same manner.

Not directly related to the mythos, but Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs are QUITE lovecraftian.
Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

To be blunt, Lovecraftian elements have been stolen and implemented everywhere. But a pure Lovecraft game, filled with the holy spirit of Providence is Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth without a doubt.

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth was a nice game, I really liked.

I was talking about latest game of Cthulhu. as Wesp said, is a walking simulator.
I'm afraid werewolf will be more of the same shit. Also I'm a little worried that this game don't looks like a priory for the studio, because was annuncied 2 years ago, and today there isn't anything that you can see from the game, only concept art. (I'm mistaken?)

But vampire next game has another studio  and Avellone behind...

Maybe I'm the only one who didn't liked that. Too much action and jump scares against what it supposed to be: a non action survival soaked with constant and increasing tension

Unfortunately, I do not think you are mistaken. Except the concept art, we have seen nothing yet, which is not exactly a good sign. It is a shame, as there are hardly any high quality werewolf video games out there.

I think the same company made the Styx games, which I never played but which I think were rather solid. I hope that part of the studio makes the werewolfe game and not the Chtulhu team...
