There has definitely been a resurgence of this type of atmospheric, psychological horror in recent years, and after Bloodborne and its eldritch aesthetic, it seems the works of H. P. Lovecraft are very much in. Conarium is the latest game to explore this particular brand of horror, and it looks suitably creepy in the above trailer.
Set after the events of Lovecraft’s story, At the Mountains of Madness, the game casts you as Frank Gilman and tasks you with exploring a seemingly abandoned Antarctic base. As you’d expect, things aren’t quite what they seem, with unsettling beasties to avoid and discovering the strange truth. With multiple endings, this one looks fairly promising.
Conarium is out on PS4 in February. Will you be checking it out? Look out behind you in the comments below.
