How did this trailer for the upcoming ‘Call of Cthulhu’ video game based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Gothic horror classic of the same name and the attendant Cthulhu Mythos which has developed around his brand of cosmic horror get me out of the existential funk I’ve been in enough to actually post?
Well, while there doesn’t appear to be any actual game footage in the trailer all of the dark atmosphere, mystery, dead whales, robed and cloaked cultists, old timey shouting, crazy-sounding voice-overs, and guys tearing their own eyes out on display all contributed for sure!
But mostly it’s my abiding love of all things Lovecraft, especially Cthulhu and the Cthulhu Mythos.
‘Call of Cthulhu’ is coming to SONY’s PlayStation4 courtesy of Chaosium, Inc. sometime this year.
