You should really go back and play it. The bugs are easily overcome, with about 5 minutes of looking it up or less.

Graphics aren't that bad, and dated visuals should not stop you from enjoying such a great game in my opinion.

I agree, we need more Cthulhu games. Just finished the amazing first, too bad the planned trilogy never happened.

I would love a sequel to this. But you should really go play the game. Of course the graphics are dated, but they don't detract from the gameplay, and the game is freaking awesome.

the graphics just take some getting used to. i wonder if the Head first is still around to develop a sequel? i would like one as well.

Unfortunately, the dated game mechanics do detract from the fun and atmosphere of the game. I'd have a lot more fun if there was more freedom in your movement, clipping didn't suddenly hang you up on invisible objects, and object targeting was a bit more precise.

Got the game in the quakecon pack and love it (big fan of penumbra and amnesia dark descent). The graphics dont bother me at all. I actually find them impressive. >.> These dated graphics in my opinion add to the terror a bit. Ive put 5 hours into it so far and the only bug I had was when moving an object it crashed. To be more specific, it was the cabinet in front of the safe at the jail.

I just hope I dont run into another bug like that when I need to run away from something terrifying :/

I guess if you wanted a more modern version of the game you could try cryostasis, but its kinda demanding on hardware. And Direct X 10 is kinda a must for it, but not required. And there is a demo for it, but its not on steam.

Headfirst was liquidated in 2006.

Maybe someday in the future, some developer will discover and buy the licence to this series, and give it a reboot. I'm really enjoying this game so far, and am really getting into the Lovecraft Mythos stuff.

Come on games industry, GET TO IT.

There's a game out recently called Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land, it's on GamersGate and a few other less-well known sites.

It's not a first-person shooter though, it's a squad-based, turn-based RPG set in the trenches of WWI, you fight zombies and other horrors raised from the world below.

It's an official Lovecraft game, licensed by Chaosium and based on the rules of the Call of Cthulhu PnP.

So you mean NOT a lovecraft game then?
What the ♥♥♥♥, zombies???

If you're looking for a horror game, Amnesia Dark Descent (2011) is probably the scariest game I have ever played.

It incorporates a lot of elements from games based on the Cthulhu mythos, such as an insanity meter.

IMHO it is a thousand times better than Dark Corners of the Earth.

Lovecraft's stories are public domain, and the mythos in general are too, so no license is needed unless you're using non-original bits from a non-Lovecraft work.

Chaosium only has copyright over their RPG system and any mythos elements originated by them. CoC is just one propriety fork of a greater open-source mythos. Beyond that they don't own anything. Anyone can make a Lovecraft story adaptation or original mythos work, be it text, movie, or game.

Hell, if your game or movie or comic or whatever is an adaption of the original "Call of Cthulhu" story, then they don't even own the name. They might not like it, but it's not possible for them to have trademark over the CoC name outside of specific contexts.

You've never read Herbert West - Reanimator, then. :rolleyes:

They have never claimed to have. But both video games discussed are within those contexts, not least because of the Chaosium 'Call of Cthulhu' logo used. The pen n' paper RPG was the main source of the Lovecraft revival in recent years, and that logo still sells. CoC: The Wasted Land, in fact, is a straight adaptation of the RPG.

Repeated for truth.

Anyone could make a game based on the works of Lovecraft right now..

Hey Guys, we're a small indie team working on a Cthulu inspired game. We don't have the man-power to make it as grand as DCOTE but we're hoping to capture some of the key elements :) It would be great to have your feedback on how to make it more DCOTE like on a small budget!
