Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones, a cosmic horror video-game adventure, launches tomorrow on Steam, but I have review keys for media now if you want to check out this unique experience.
Drawing directly from the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Stygian is a turn-based RPG set in a broken and mysterious world. Like classic CRPG titles, Stygian provides an open-ended narrative to unearth as characters cope with the warped reality of a world fallen to chaos.
Create a character based on one of eight different archetypes pulled from the pages of 1920s pulp fiction, each with unique attributes, skills, and beliefs that provide defenses (and weaknesses) against impending mind-rending terror.
Featuring strategic, turn-based combat, players will face fanatic cultists, inhuman monstrosities, and cosmic horrors that will leave the weak-willed gibbering. Balance physical attacks with powerful eldritch spells that have dire consequences on one’s sanity while fending off the unnatural.
