As a fan of Lovecraft's writing, this was a surprise gem. Minecraft-based first-person exploration and survival set in the Cthulhu Mythos universe. You find yourself waking in a strange old library and have to examine several magical tomes to find a way to escape. Each book is a portal to a different world and contains an orb that traps the soul of an Old One, which can be used to unlock further books.

Each world is based on the works of Lovecraft (ie. a winter-set world to the tune of "At the Mountains of Madness") and include roaming terrors from the inspired story. You can find a variety of weapons with which to defend yourself (or take a stealth approach if you prefer) and several utility tools to help you better get around. As you proceed you also collect "artifacts", which act as the game all-purpose currency. You can use artifacts to pay for in-store items or power abilities.

Great level design, atmosphere, creatures, audio and overall experience.

I really enjoyed this game. It's a solid rogue-lite with great mechanics and a fluid feel. It's simple, sweet and Lovecraft!!

It's just not $15 USD good. This is a $5-$10 game at most. It's easily beaten and everything in the trailer turns out to be the whole game. If you have the spare cash go ahead. If it's on sale please buy it. But I regret spending $15.

Well, I went into this thinking that it wasn't gonna scare me, then later down in the first level I encounter a shoggoth and as soon as I found out those things can climb and go through doors I just noped my way out of there and I've still yet to brave the unknown of what lies in the rest of this terrifying title

Eldritch is a first-person stealth roguelike.
That said, the stealth aspect is optional, fighting things head-on or making a mad dash for the exit is just as valid.
Everything's carefully crafted and tuned so the game feels like a scarier Spelunky.
Yes, it's scary. Don't let the blocky graphics fool you, Eldritch is very unsettling thanks to its sound design and and enemy behaviour. You're always a few mistakes away from death, you can see and hear them, it makes you want to hide and never get out of your corner, but you need to proceed and face them.
However, as you learn enemy behaviours and feel more competent, you'll also feel safer and more in control. Each of the 5 levels starts out terrifying and becomes familiar with practice.

The visual aesthetic in this game is very similar to that of Minecraft, but it doesn't at ALL take away from the spooky atmosphere. In fact the graphical simplicity is oddly easy on the eyes, and allows you to absorb the eerie ambiance and the minimal - but still great - soundtrack without being completely oggled by flashy visuals. It goes to show you don't need the most advanced graphical engine to make a solid horror game.

Eldritch is genuinely creepy, and outright terrifying once you run into your first Shoggath. Or four. Like I did. It really is an unnerving and fun game, and captures the feeling of helplessness and paranoia that Lovecraft is so famous for.

Plus the Shopkeepers are Fishmen in cute little bow ties, and a Shoggath in a giant Bowler Hat. Its surprisingly adorable and I love it.
