The mod you are trying to view has ceased development and consequently been archived. If you are a member of this mod, can demonstrate that it is being actively developed and will be able to keep this profile up to date with the latest news, images, videos and downloads, please contact us with all details and we will consider its re-activation.


- Location and Time

The game action is mainly set in the city of Ainsbrough. The city itself has various areas, such as a prospering downtown area with sharp businesses, a poor ghetto, countryside, a large forest and other areas... The player will be able to visit most of them just by following the main storyline. 1922 - the roaring twenties, prohibition, corruption, live fast and die young era. With the strong grip of poverty approaching, everyone was eager to make money and live a good life.

- Gameplay

The player will have a main storyline to go trough. Beside that, side missions will be available. It is the players choice to take or refuse them. Side missions will get you a chance to visit other locations, unlock weapon upgrades and earn money, with which you can buy various gear needed for your work. Side missions will make further playing easier at some parts, if you do them. You have the free choice of completing your mission. You have an objective and it is your choice how will you get to it. Making right or wrong choices will differ in the mission itself, but not in the final outcome of the game.

- Features

The mod will have a lot of features. Some are listed above, but others will stay secret and be left for the player to find out.

  • Health system - If you get shot, or injured, you will recover but slowly. You can numb the pain by drinking from your alcohol flask. Drink too much and you'll be woozy, might slip and fall, or shoot by accident, fall unconcious or vomit. To speed up your recovery you may want to use medkits and other gear. Hard injures (Head, vital organs) will mean certain death if you don't attend them.
  • Fear - The protagonist is a hardened man, and he tends to stay quite calm during fearful or traumatic situations, however, he is phobic of spiders and small enclosed areas. When you confront your fears, a certain fear effect will happen, blurring your screen and causing hallucinations, accidental firearm discharge, jumping back and falling down, etc.
  • Fighting system - The player will be able to use all sorts of weapons, ranging from your bare knuckles, over blunt objects, firearms up to using your enviorment to beat your enemies.
  • Puzzles - In certain parts of the game you'll have to solve certain puzzles. For example, one day you'll find a bomb in your office which you have to defuse. There, a sort of a minigame activates and you will have to defuse the bomb using various tools, bypassing wires, turning switches and doing other things. Puzzles will get more complex as you progress trough the game.

Awesome! Good enough for me. Its honestly about time we got an original mod like this. Yes, many of them are original, but nothing like this!

Uhmmmm... nice, but you need to work in the ambience. Anyways, this is probably an early stage of development, so... nice work!

Well this map is our test map for now. All new textures we use, etc, will be applied here. Once we have achieved the 1920s look we're after, we'll re-record the scene and upload a new version.

Either way, I've never been fascinated by the Mythos, and games made by Lovecraft don't seem to have a big bang on the market, which is what I'd be aiming for in my first retailed game. Perhaps if I do end up owning my own business one day, I shall market a Lovecraft game.
