Cthulhu Thursday: Necronomicon Now on iPhone

November 11, 2010

Phew!  Turns out it is a small game based on Lovecraft’s work and not the actual book that allows users to summon the end of the world…

Fans of H.P. Lovecraft will soon be able to play a new Cthulhu-mythos inspired game on their iPhones. Lucidsphere’s simply titled the Necronomicon. New England author H.P. Lovecraft first mentioned the Necronomicon in the story The Hound in September of 1922.

Interest in the game was sparked by a recently released trailer for the Evil Dead movies. In the first two Evil Dead movies, a passage from the Necronomicon played on a tape recorder awakens zombies. In Lovecraft’s fiction zombies are not mentioned and the book contains secret and long forgotten rights to summon Cthulhu and other deities of the mythos.

Here’s a couple of screenshots I took on my iPod:

(Cthulhu Thursday is a dose of Mythos to brighten darken your week. More on the idea can be found here and a list of posts thus far, here. Also for more Cthulhu news, sign up to the cthulhuHQ twitter feed. Enjoy!)
