Don’t Go Insane Alone – Bring 3 Friends In Lovecraft-Inspired Eresys

Join up with your fellow cult members to close a portal of terror in Lovecraft-inspired Eresys - coming to PC in April 2023.

Eresys is a bit like holding a secret or a stifled fart. Last week sometime, I saw this show up on my radar and immediately fell in love; Lovecraft, dark and ominous, with lots of cultish activity. Drat! It’s a co-op game. But Dragonis Games’ (The Shore) title has appeared in my inbox again, so let’s spread the good word. 

For once, you play a cult member rather than a victim of one. With the help of up to three other cult members, you must stay united and descend into the darkness (and madness) of a Lovecraftian universe.

Eresys is a bit hush-hush as there’s not much to go by other than the party being dropped into a forest and having to survive the horrors that lurk within. A portal has been opened on a remote island, killing the inhabitants and the chap who opened it. You’re the clean-up crew that has to send the evil back.

Key stuff to note in Eresys:

  • Story – An expelled cultist has unleashed a Void Portal on a cut-off island, leading to the death of the inhabitants and himself, you and your fellow cultists need to send the entity back from where it came from and seal the portal. Claim the sources that are needed to complete the offer of the altars, complete the final ritual to send the entity back and seal the portal before it’s too late.
  • Smart Mechanics – Only by working as a team will you come out of this forest alive.
  • Smart AI – Those entities are not your typical kind of “Monsters”. They will calculate all your choices and actions. This will also have an immediate impact on their AI and create new ways to devour you.
  • Unexpected Events – It could be a small coin or an idol, anything that is linked to the occult that could trigger a surprising and unexpected event. You never know what is hiding behind each item.
  • Variety of gameplay elements, including caves, safe houses, and altars
  • Cave System – Caves can be good hideouts but also hide sinister surprises. “Be prepared”.
  • Safe Houses – Houses and other buildings can provide temporary safety. Hidden lootable items and resources can be found, which you will need to complete the final ritual.
  • The Book – The book is given from the start to one of the players, this action will decide the keeper of the book. The book of the order can resurrect one of your teammates but with unexpected consequences. 
  • Scrolls – Have been made by The Order, as a temporary solution to dissipate the monsters that are chasing you. Each scroll can be used only once and has this effect for a short period.
  • Pages – The book of the order has missing pages, to complete the final ritual, you will have to gather every missing page.
  • Victims – The enchanted victims and other resources can be found around the island which was used by the cultist. You have to gather their blood and fill your vials with it.

Watch the vid:

Eresys will be unleashed on the 20th of April, 2023.
