A face you can trust.

It’s sometimes hard to gauge from the outside exactly how successful an indie game has been, so I’m always interested when developers release figures. David Pittman, creator of Lovecraftian first-person roguelike Eldritch, has done just that. In a post-mortem posted on his blog, the former 2K Marin developer outlined the steps he took in leaving his old job, building the game, and was even kind enough to include some graphs. (more…)

I quite liked Eldritch, that recent coupling of Minecraft and Spelunky and gravitas-free Lovecraft, and I assure you that I use ‘quite’ in a positive sense rather than a back-handed compliment sense. It’s a ‘hey let’s just do this’ sort of game, a hearty gasp of an idea that coalesced into something brief but satisfying. It did feel a bit content-thin though, and I assure you I use ‘thin’ in a ‘not quite enough’ sense rather than ‘oh my, how svelte!’ one. So I’m glad to hear about that an expansion, Mountains of Madness, is en route, and that it is Sinister Christmas-themed. (more…)

Eldritch is a first-person action game with randomly-generated levels and semi-perma-death which borrows liberally from Minecraft, Lovecraft, Spelunkycraft and Dungeon Mastercraft. >

Have I mentioned how much I like first-person roguelikelike, Eldritch? No? Well, here goes: I really like it. The random nature of it means that it’s, well, rather random, but it’s one of those games that sort of captures the raw essence of videogameness and puts it straight into your head with no excuses or fluff. Exploring, fighting, sneaking, collecting, being freaked out by weird things, skipping locations via magic books, getting bitten by worms, delving deep into unknown and unknowable videogame spaces. Ignore that stupid bit of your brain that says you should bypass this game because it looks like Minecraft, because it ain’t. And you’ll treasure it.

My feeling is that Eldritch isn’t spooky because of the Lovecraftian theme, it’s spooky because videogames just are spooky. Goddamned weird-ass alternate spaces for no reason! This is one. And it’s great, Anyway, there’s bound to be a bunch of Halloween type release out at this point in the year, and this is the one I’d buy for a friend. In fact, I am going to do that, right now>.
