Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is a first-person horror game that combines intense action and adventure elements. You will draw upon your skills in exploration, investigation, and combat while faced with the seemingly impossible task of battling evil incarnate.

Set during the 1920s, Call of Cthulhu is based on the Cthulhu Mythos of HP Lovecraft, an American writer of fantasy and horror. Lovecraft's stories tell of unthinkable evil, psychic possession, and mythical worlds and his work has profoundly influenced numerous fantasy and science fiction writers, including Stephen King and Anne Rice.


Surprisingly few games have drawn from H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulu mytthos, but this 2005 first person shooter draws directly from Lovecraft's The Shadow Over Innsmouth, and results in one of the most chilling games in recent times. Not only does the game feature terrifing creatures and atmosphere, the game also lacks a heads up display, meaning the player has no visual cues for things such as health, radar, or ammo. This surprisingly simple mechanic goes a long way in making players feel hopeless in an isolated, unforgiving world.
