Cthulhu Thursday: Cthulhu Video Games

June 9, 2011

Sadly this is going to be my last Cthulhu Thursday for a while now 😦 as I’m a bit busy on a number of project, including Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land – which means that most days are Cthulhu ones for me now! 🙂

I wanted to end on a summary of all the Cthulhu-esqe video games there are.  However I’ve not been able to find a definitive resource that lists them all, but there are some good lists.

There is this one on the CthulhuWiki, a good list on HPLovecraft.com and also on this site, Games of Cthulhu.  It would be good to have the time to unify this and update it.

Not only is there a list of games on Games of Cthulhu, but they seem to make a game too, the card-style video game, Necronomicon, which you can play! (There is also the iPhone game of the same name but developed by different people)  There is also Cthulhu Saves the World and the Elder  Signs: Omen for iOS.

Here’s a few choice screenshots from the selection…

From the grandfather of survival horror games, Alone in the Dark:

The 1995 PC game, Call of Cthulhu: Prisoner of Ice
