New patch available (Version 1.1)

Dear investigators,
The new version 1.1 comes with a lot of fixes, new content, and surprises. Take a good look at the patch notes:

  • We have improved the shooting system in the game.

  • Balance improved: We have improved the balance of the Professor up to the Library location. We have reduced the stamina cost of the Explosive shot, but we have increased its delay.

  • New enemies and traps: We have added new traps and enemies in the Professor's cemetery level and other locations.

  • New animations and visual elements: Now the plants in the game react when you run through them.

  • New items: We have added items that give immunity to certain effects like Bleeding, Stun, Traumas, etc...

  • New sound effects: We have added sound effects to certain consumable objects.

  • Quest fixed: We have fixed the quest of the mother & child in the Detective's Pogost.

  • Necronomicon: Now you can find in the levels of the game, and in the shops, different copies of the Necronomicon. Use them wisely and it may grant you valuable objects, access to a secret location, or a certain and terrible death.

  • Eye of Azathoth: Fixed the issue that hides the map if you use two Eyes of Azathoth in the same location.

  • Night hunter: Fixed the problem with the Night hunter in the Professor's Cemetery, that appeared frozen if you had already saved the Witch previously.

As you can see, we continue as hard as ever improving, fixing, and adding new things to our game. Please continue being as awesome, and inform us of any issue that you find. We promise to continue giving you all as much support as possible and improving our game.

New patch available (Version 1.05)

Dear investigators,
We have released a new patch with several important fixes that will improve the general gameplay experience:

  • Shoggoths in the Ice City: We have discovered and fixed the issue with the Shoggoths turrets, which wouldn´t spawn, blocking the player in a cleaned room.

  • Achievements: Now it is possible to get the following achievements - Collector of stories, Stories expert, Professional reader, and The end?.


  • Objects stackable: Now it is possible to stack the "trash" objects (books, treasures, etc.) in batches of 10.

  • Key reconfiguration: Now it is possible to reconfigure the keys Shift and Alt, and the buttons of the mouse.

  • Gamepads: Now the gamepads won´t vibrate when receiving a small amount of damage, for example, of the debuffs (Bleeding, acid, poison, etc...).

  • Visual changes: We have changed the color of the poison debuff to not mistake it with the acid debuff.

  • Balance changes: We have made changes in the balance of the Detective and the Professor to make the gameplay more interesting.

  • Minor fixes and general improvement.

Thanks a lot for your support!

About This Game

Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is an action rogue-lite with RPG elements. You explore randomly generated levels based in H.P. Lovecraft stories, fighting cultists and all kinds of monsters from the Mythos, improving your weapons and gear, solving puzzles and challenges, and looking for clues and knowledge to defeat the Great Old Ones and the Outer Gods.

LIVE H.P. LOVECRAFT’S STORIES




Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is based on H.P. Lovecraft’s stories. You will experience first-hand the cosmic horror created by the genius of Providence. Every character will go through an investigation that will take them through different locations, from the creepy old Victorian mansion to the abandoned hospital where forbidden experiments take place or the jungle where lost tribes celebrate forgotten rituals, just to name a few. Levels are randomly generated: it will be a different experience every time you play. Also, they vary depending on the character you’re playing with. Look for items and clues to unlock secrets and new stories!

5 CHARACTERS, 5 WAYS OF FIGHTING THE MYTHOS




You can play as 5 different characters, each with a different playstyle and storyline. A private detective, a witch, a thief, a professor, and even a ghoul—each with different stats, weapons, and combat moves, creating five entirely different gameplay experiences. The Detective offers a balanced playstyle, with average Health and Stamina. The Professor is a specialist in ranged combat, with less Health and a special shield granted by his weapon, the Tillinghast. The Witch does a lot of damage, has teleport abilities and elemental shields of fire and ice, but also a very low Health. The Thief is a specialist in melée combat that takes advantage of its stealth to maximize her damage. The ghoul does a lot of melée damage, has a high Health and regenerates itself, but can’t use medkits at all.

DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE GREAT OLD ONES




The truth of the dark horrors that inhabit the universe is unbearable for any human mind. In the end, you can’t win against the Old Ones. Madness or death await you. But maybe you can delay the inevitable… If you face the Great Old Ones without any knowledge about them, you will go mad just by looking at their hideous features. But spread across every level you will find special items with information about the Great Old Ones. The more you know about them, the stronger your mind shall become – but knowledge is not easy to find, and if you are not thorough in your investigation you might get to the end of a storyline without finding everything that is to know. You will have to play with all the characters if you want to find all the information about every Great Old One!

MADNESS AWAITS




Insanity crawls behind every corner for those who face the Mythos. In your investigations, you will face different situations where you have to choose what to do – make the wrong decision and you will start losing your mind. In order to face the Great Old Ones, you need knowledge, and to find it you have to explore – but the more you explore the more events that shake your sanity you will find… Those who go mad under the influence of the Mythos take their own life to escape the eternal terror they are now looking at. Not all hope is lost, though – there are some ways to recover your sanity…
