Description

Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is an action rogue-lite with RPG elements. You explore randomly generated levels based on the 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.

What’s New

Version 1.321

Dear investigators,
We have uploaded the new version 1.321. In it, we have fixed several bugs, and we have improved the balance of the Professor, as he seemed to be the most problematic character of all five:

Fixes:
We have fixed an issue with a text in German appearing on the description of the first level, for players playing in English.

We have fixed the issue on which the weapons didn´t work when you dragged them from the inventory of the Storage to the player's inventory.

We have fixed the issue that slowed down the inventory of the Strange place when it contained a lot of items.

We have fixed a problem with the minimap.

We have fixed an issue with several mini-events which didn´t count for the achievements.

We have fixed the issue that didn´t let you access to the Secret level when you restarted the Strange place location.

Professor: We have increased the damage of the weapons (not the basic one).

Professor: We have increased the damage of the mines.

As always, thanks a lot for your support! Please, send us your comments, opinions, ideas... We will be happy to read them!

I killed myself. It was awesome!

I saw my own skeleton and turned my shotgun on myself. What the hell?! Didn’t see that coming.

Just a sample of what’s in store when playing this game. Simple enough, but you’re probably going to be your own worst enemy and die from your own errors or insane choices. Either way, you’ll probably die. Or not.

They give you enough medical supplies to help you keep from bleeding out, so maybe you’ll have a long run and get to meet the Old Ones. And then die.

I’m only on Chapter 2, but so far am loving it. Atmospheric, enough secrets and Lovecraft lore to stay intriguing. It is pulling me away from my other games I said I wouldn’t get distracted from until they were finished.

I recommend this game.

Too hard

Great aesthetics and world building, but...

I’m a veteran Wayward Souls player and I can’t beat the Professor’s prologue, even after trying for hours on easy difficulty. The buttons are small enough to miss in the heat of battle, it’s easy to aim in the wrong direction, and overall the controls do not feel precise. One little mistake and I’m swarmed by enemies. Wish the controls were more like Wayward Souls. Or could you at least make the buttons bigger? Or add a balance update for the Professor? Hope you fix this so that I can once again enjoy the game.

UPDATE: Thank you for the response. I did not know about the custom controls, and it significantly helps to be able to make the joysticks bigger. Now I can keep going, but Easy difficulty is still no joke!

Hi!
Do you try to set up controls and it positions in the game settings? its possible to increase control zones and button positions as you wish in there. Maybe it helps.

Just what I was looking for

This adventure is everything a Lovecraft fan could want, and plays in a style similar to Diablo II. The only thing I didn’t like was the layout of the controls, but I soon realized they’re customizable. A lot of thought went into creating this game. It’s huge and has an exceptionally polished feel. Congrats, dudes!!

Thank you for playing our game - we really appreciate it.
