Lovecraft's Untold Stories hit the streets today in physical format for Nintendo Switch.
Madrid, July 31st, 2020: Following its arrival on PlayStation 4, also in physical format, the Nintendo Switch version of Lovecraft's Untold Stories now makes the move to traditional stores through two editions, a standard and a collector's edition that includes all sorts of extras.
Along with the game, the collector's edition of Lovecraft's Untold Stories includes its soundtrack, an artbook, lithographs of the main characters and a badge.
The roguelite created by Blini Games mixes procedural generated levels, the most elaborate pixel art environments, looting of all kinds of objects and weapons and elements from classic RPG's.
Whether you're a fan or not of H.P. Lovecraft's works, Blini's title promises to meet the expectations of every horror, pixel art and roguelite RPG fan.
Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is based on H.P. Lovecraft’s stories. You will experience first-hand the cosmic horror created by the genius of Providence. Every character will go through an investigation that will take them through different locations, from the creepy old Victorian mansion to the abandoned hospital where forbidden experiments take place or the jungle where lost tribes celebrate forgotten rituals, just to name a few.
Levels are randomly generated: it will be a different experience every time you play. Also, they vary depending on the character you’re playing with. Look for items and clues to unlock secrets and new stories!
5 characters, 5 ways of fighting the Mythos.
You can play as 5 different characters, each with a different playstyle and storyline. A private detective, a witch, a thief, a professor, and even a ghoul—each with different stats, weapons, and combat moves, creating five entirely different gameplay experiences.
The Detective offers a balanced playstyle, with average Health and Stamina. The Professor is a specialist in ranged combat, with less Health and a special shield granted by his weapon, the Tillinghast. The Witch does a lot of damage, has teleport abilities and elemental shields of fire and ice, but also a very low Health. The Thief is a specialist in melée combat that takes advantage of its stealth to maximize her damage. The ghoul does a lot of melée damage, has a high Health and regenerates itself, but can’t use medkits at all.
Insanity crawls behind every corner for those who face the Mythos. In your investigations, you will face different situations where you have to choose what to do – make the wrong decision and you will start losing your mind. In order to face the Great Old Ones, you need knowledge, and to find it you have to explore – but the more you explore the more events that shake your sanity you will find… Those who go mad under the influence of the Mythos take their own life to escape the eternal terror they are now looking at. Not all hope is lost, though – there are some ways to recover your sanity…
