Lovecraft-inspired PC horror adventure unveiled

Zoetrope Interactive today announced a Lovecraft-inspired horror game in development for the PC: Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder. You take the role of police detective Howard E. Loreid (which is an anagram for "Stock Character") attempting to solve the murder of rich guy Clark Field who, as luck would have it, has had dabblings with the occult. According to Zoetrope, Darkness Within lets players explore the "eerie and disturbing corner[s] of the human psyche". If you met some of the people we know, that's a terrifying prospect indeed. Look for Darkness Within later this year. In the meantime, stare at the gallery below to get the spookiness flowing.
