      >Lovecraft's Untold Stories
      I played a little bit of this; seemed janky as hell and I don't tend to enjoy roguelites but it did a good job representing the mythos. My first run ended when I picked up a newspaper (in the "safe area," no less) and my character saw his own obituary in it and then immediately killed himself since he already had low sanity. It was too funny for me to be mad tbh.

    There are ten thousand fricking """""Lovecraftian""""" horror games because it's a buzzword. Put tentacles on the monster, or make the protagonist go insane as a substitute for actual character development — boom, Lovecraft. Doesn't need to make sense; most of the people who will buy it never read Lovecraft and just think the """mythos""" sounds cool after watching YouTube videos about it (actually about August Derleth's fanfic).
    Better question: What games would Howard like to play if he were alive today? "He wouldn't play video games" is not an allowed answer. He has to play something. I demand it.

    A game where creepy buttholes watch you is lovecraft lite, not one where you fight monsters, something which rarely ever happened in his stories and when it did it was almost always a dog killing something in literally seconds because of how impressively weak the majority of his aliens were

        They're almost all short stories, a lot of which you can plow through while you're sitting on the toilet. Most of his stuff was published in magazines so they had to be a bit more short form and the lore is established between unrelated stories.
        Kind of a shame GDT's mountains of madness never got off the ground because I think its the most filmable of his stories, and in the right hands of a visual director there is some stuff thats well explained in the book (the cyclopean ruins) that would look so fricking cool on the big screen.

      >(half of which are so weak they consistently lose 1 v 1 to dogs)
      Dogs are probably 10x stronger in Lovecrafts verse due to being known to defeat cats, and Lovecraft loves cats.
      Still, the inhabitants of K'nyan would make for some pretty spooky antagonists if a game was made where some of them emerged from their underground domain to subjugate humanity (through mostly subterfuge, I guess)

      >The K'nyanians had attained immortality and subjugated other races before them, had the technology to biologically modify vanquished races and other life-forms and reanimate the dead for use as slaves, and could dematerialize and rematerialize at will. The underground people also engaged in sadism, depraved practices, ritualistic orgies, and unspeakable horrors such as random body modifications and mutilations of other slave species as entertainment, in order to gratify their time-dulled senses

      The fish people got bodied by the police within 1 day (and their claims they survive any ass beating is just that; claims, they never proved it and every fish we see in the story is a fricking loser, it even ending breaking one out of an insane asylum he can't just get himself out of)

      Only the wind monsters and magic light actually did shit and that's just because the story didn't give real conclusion

        Nah its not that. The aliens near universally were descibed as having human like societies and the Mi-go (Apex species from beyond reality that will outlive everything via bodyswapping) specifically kidnap humans literally just to teach us shit for fun as they do countless other aliens, which they view about the same as humans.
        Its typical artist "artists are special all other humans are worthless" wank, with all the aliens either having art as their main industry or kidnapping specifically people who could be called artists over anyone else.

      He was a disturbed man, his mom was in a mental asylum and he spent a lot of time on his own reading books in a big house. He feared almost everything of the outside world. When he went to sleep he would see nightmares and dreams, which he would promptly put into words. To him the things he saw were real, so his works resonate differently than someone who just does it for money. They had soul, some might say.
      tldr: It was xenophobia, fear of seafood and who knows what else that in turn fueled his imagination to combat those problems.

      I've been trying to read Clark. He's good, really good even, but there's a slight purple to the prose at times that makes it hard for me to get into. I had the first of one of his anthologies by Del Rey I think and it'd go from story I cannot put down to story I can't push myself to finish, whereas Howard was consistent (a few weak stories but I didn't suffer through them, they were tolerable). I can feel the strong hand of Edgar Allen Poe (in a good way, since Smith was a fan of Poe) in his works. Again, I don't say the man is bad at all just that it's more hit and miss with me. Cosmic irony is my own writing is too purple prosey. Robert E Howard is and always will be the GOAT for me. I need to read more lovecraft but I liked what I read.

      Cultist Simulator. I love the game, but it’s hard to recommend as the gameplay is really grindy if don’t want to take risks. But the writing and lore are lovely, really nails down transcendental horror feeling.

      I love Clark Ashton Smith, a shame few videogames try to go for the same «weird fantasy» style he did in his novels.
      When of the few exceptions I’m aware of are some Thief fan missions; Into the Odd and Alcazar, especially (beware, the beginning of ItO can be a huge filter for noobs tho)

    I think Darkest Dungeon is the closest that feels to an homage to Lovecraft's works as literature, but it can be too on the nose that borders parody. But in terms of aesthetics and theme, I think Bloodborne is easily one of the best. Fallout 3 and 4 also did kinda nail some of that weird american strangeness and had multiple references to Lovecraft.

        Yeah, we could do without the gank houses full of crawlers but actually piecing informations going to the hospital, library etc, meeting actual weird stuff that are nothing more than fluff was great.

        It's dull as frick and whatever stories the game was trying to tell were wrapped up too quickly. The fact that the devs insisted on wasting my time with their procedurally generated map was the last straw. It's like 10 hours of story content stretched to oblivion with the shitty world design.

        Aye that's a good point. It was a pretty musky mistery until suddenly "oh it's all that" and then the end.
        I understand but given the topic it's a pretty good recreation of the setting. Really like that there were a lot of possession and corruption which is often oddly forgotten in most Lovecraft inspired derivative games

      It's dull as frick and whatever stories the game was trying to tell were wrapped up too quickly. The fact that the devs insisted on wasting my time with their procedurally generated map was the last straw. It's like 10 hours of story content stretched to oblivion with the shitty world design.

        I'd agree with that. Honestly to improve the game I'd do this. Remove combat entirely. It's garbage and easily the worst part of the game. If you want to have any make them more puzzles or go for a more classic RE feel where they're more obstacles. Reduce the map size to one third of it's current size to reduce the pointless traveling around and flesh out the actual story towards the end.

          I'd have to agree here, it was so barebones Idk why they even bothered putting it in. Frogwares isn't an action studio and it was obvious they were winging it, barely.

      It's a lot of fun, but it missed out by making sanity just another health bar. I wish it was something that would have been lowered permanently but get lowered slower, and have bigger effects on the story. Otherwise though the city is fun to navigate and the way you have to come to your own conclusions about cases was a good touch

    How would you make a game out of this story?
    Would it be possible to portray the impossible color that comes from the comet?

      Idk why you need a game out of every single thing he wrote. This one has no action so it will have to be an adventure game/walking sim. Funny enough, the closest thing to this premise is already made. See the Scratches game.

          I think there was another movie version that did the same, only it was black and white throughout except for the colour being magenta.
          Also, man what a shit movie. The final 20% when shit goes absolutely crazy is fun, but that other 80%, frick me

          But I guess it is a comically bad premise to adapt to a movie (an impossible color, in a visual medium), so anything not completely abysmal is commendable

      Make tech that can show the color. Then, when it matters, have them realize its not the right color. They switch a dozen filters, then the machine breaks or they die, never having seen the truth.

      Yeah, we could do without the gank houses full of crawlers but actually piecing informations going to the hospital, library etc, meeting actual weird stuff that are nothing more than fluff was great.
      [...]
      Aye that's a good point. It was a pretty musky mistery until suddenly "oh it's all that" and then the end.
      I understand but given the topic it's a pretty good recreation of the setting. Really like that there were a lot of possession and corruption which is often oddly forgotten in most Lovecraft inspired derivative games

      Why is that oddly forgotten? Lovecraft is 99% some rich fop walking down the street making shit up like
      >Lol this thing I am fathoming and explaining in detail is unfathomable and uncomprehensable and a little bit confusing
      Humans get possesed the least out of anything and there's little to no corruption, just people being born different. The one time corruption was specifically tried, v the old man in the shack, they spent months and failed

        Lovecraft sold all his stories to a pulp magazine and was so poor he could barely afford to eat. He died from a preventable illness he could've got treatment for if he had more money.

        "I have financial economy in eating worked out to a fine art, and know the self-service lunch rooms where I can get the best bargains. I never spend more than $3.00 per week on food, and often not even nearly that.

    Fricking Netflix. I don't know what I was expecting.

    Anyway, don't watch Del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities bros. The Autopsy is a good episode, but don't let that convince you to watch the rest like I did, it's all beyond trash, the two Lovecraft stories especially.
