Cthulhu Cultist

Character Summary


The Cthulhu Cultist believes that human beings, as life-forms on earth, are unique because we were spawned from Demon Gods beyond the stars. Our blood, our demonic blood gives unlocks an unlimited potential. The Great Old Ones have granted them tremendous power and in exchange they have become brother, disciple and servant.


According to the tenets of the Cult, ancient and powerful beings once ruled this dimension, but their influence vanished from the earth many aeons ago. However, subtle impressions still wait inside mankind, always on the threshold of being discovered. These dormant energies allow us to occasionally break down the barriers in our mind and in turn those of reality. These rare vestiges are humanity’s only hope for both earthly power and spiritual salvation. For when the Cult of Cthulhu has saturated the land, the Old Ones will return.

Thank you very much, we tried as hard as we could to get it right. What you see here is only the very beginning of the mod as well. All of the sounds and everything aren't even working properly in the video since it wasn't a full export. Just wait until we show the real thing in full HD! We have only shown maybe 1/10th of what we have in store.

Love Lovecraft's works.

I hope the cult members run faster as the descripton mentioned.

What are the green flashes near the muzzle flash?

It's a stretched muzzle flash texture 8)

Yeah, we have a problem with that weapon model. We are in the process of fixing it since we redid the model and texture.

Looks pretty darn awesome. The slow movement of the cultists make it especially creepy.
I'd prefer a simpler weapon, though. A heavy, old handgun would be much more fitting than an automatic weapon, imo.

We have an old semi-automatic pistol from 1918 that we have made and put in. The weapon shown is not the players first weapon, that is one they receive further on. It is basically a god-mode weapon that I have given myself since I have near unlimited ammo and we haven't tweaked it's firing properties fully.

Good question! Instead of a variance in model, we are going to use a variance of textures i.e. some with tattoos, bloody gashes or a torn mask. Since the base texture has been completed adding these things should be very easy. This helps to keep our development time down while still creating multiple variations. We have also have a plan for another cultist type, but that all depends on time constraints.

I am a very big follower of Lovecraft, and this looks very nice in fact it should not look very nice but timeless horror of nothingness.
