Eldritch is more than Minecraft and monsters – it's a first-person action roguelike and immersive sim, with non-linear, randomly generated levels, permadeath and strange Lovecraftian beasts, due out on October 21 for PC. Eldritch comes from Minor Key Games, founded by David and J. Kyle Pittman, twins who have combined experience developing BioShock 2, Borderlands, Borderlands 2 and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.

Eldritch could have been a terrifying, stressful romp through dungeons infested with vicious creatures, but Minor Key is taking a more quirky-creepy approach to Lovecraft lore. That blue fish-man creature is downright adorable – but it still has to be slaughtered.

Eldritch is available for pre-order now for $15, which includes access to the beta at the end of September and a Steam key if the game makes it through Greenlight.
