Milan – 23 October 2018 – The independent team PyshcoDev announces its new project, named Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness, a graphic adventure which blends the Lovecraft universe with the classic style of LucasArts adventures. On October 30, 2018 PsychoDev launched the Kickstarter campaign to bring the Mountains of Madness to Steam, iOS, Android and Switch, to be released in December of 2019. The game successfully end the campaign and it’s now live on IndieGoGo InDemand a post-campaign solution that allows the project to continue raising funds.
“Mountains of Madness” is a graphic adventure which takes place in the world of the master of horror, H.P. Lovecraft. Set in the ’30s, it traces the events narrated in the novel “At The Mountains Of Madness”, which tells the story of an expedition of scientists bound for the South Pole only to come across a shocking discovery. This is only the beginning of the many incredible and mystifying events which shall befall them. The game is populated by characters unique to the Lovecraftian style of exploration into the unknown, and spans many farflung eras, even revealing the shrouded origin of the Necronomicon itself. Mountains of Madness is an epic journey in which discovering the truth behind its terrible mysteries is but a passport to madness.
Mountains of Madness tells the story of the private investigator Lone Carter, who we first met 10 years hence in the original Chronicle of Innsmouth, first chapter of the saga. We shall also journey to ancient Yemen, assuming the role of Abdul Alhazred – “The Mad Arab”, creator of the Necronomicon – and even step into the shoes of H.P. Lovecraft himself as he seeks the roots of the ancient mysteries surrounding his own bloodline.
The PsychoDev team has previously published Chronicle of Innsmouth, its premiere graphic adventure based on the Lovecraft universe in May of 2017. This prequel promises to improve on all the elements of the first episode, particularly with its modernized high-res graphics approach.
