Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Cyanide Studio announced today that Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame adaptation of Chaosium’s pen-and-paper RPG, has gone Gold. To celebrate, Focus Home Interactive released the 'Preview to Madness' trailer which provides a taste of the press’ first impressions and praise for the game’s distinctly Lovecraftian atmosphere, mesmerizing audio and visual design, as well as the RPG-investigation mechanics.
In Call of Cthulhu, nothing is as it seems. Terrible creatures, conspiracies and cults await on Darkwater Island, lining the path to the horrifying truth behind the island. Pierce’s mind will suffer – solving the case will bring him to brink of insanity, to a place where death may appear the most favorable outcome. The player’s senses will be challenged to the point of questioning whether everything and everyone is real or illusory. Creeping shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.
