Lovecraft-inspired horror unveiled

Darkness Within: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder is a newly-announcedadventure game inspired by the works of author HP Lovecraft, due to launch later this year.

In Pursuit of Loath Nolder, in development at Zoetrope Interactive, casts players in the role of police detective Howard E. Loreid.

Loreid is attempting to solve the murder of rich geezer Clark Field, who was heavily involved with the occult. The detective's main suspect is a PI called Loath Nolder who mysteriously disappeared several years previously and has suddenly reappeared on the scene.

Obviously, what at first seems a routine investigation takes a disturbing and terrifying turn for the worse.

"Darkness Within takes players to an eerie and disturbing corner of the human psyche exploring nightmares, the occult, and a frightening psychological world," Galip Kartoglu, president of Zoetrope Interactive, explains. "The game is filled with terrifying vistas and a compelling plot that revolves around a protagonist-investigator in classic Lovecraftian style."
