I wanted to be frightened of Cyanide Studio’s new Lovecraftian horror game, but the scariest thing about Call of Cthulhu is the sloppy stealth action segments that try to add tension to an otherwise casual adventure game.

Lovecraftian horror is something I only really discovered earlier this year. Sure, I'd seen the superhero episodes of South Park, where Cartman teams up with a My Neighbour Totoro-style Cthulhu, but it wasn't until recently that I started diving into the stories and mythos -- as well as the legacy they left behind. One of my favourite ways the now-public domain sub-genre has continued to this day is the Lovecraftian roleplaying game.
A Call of Cthulhu video game based on Chaosium's pen-and-paper RPG of the same name is on the cards, but it's been quite a few months since we heard anything new. While information remains scarce, we do have some fresh screenshots to share, showing off more of the title's creepy ambience.
