Oh, What Big Eyes You Have… The Innsmouth Case Out Now On PlayStation and Xbox

Return to Innsmouth once again to uncover the disappearance of Tabitha Marsh in The Innsmouth Case - a superb 'choose your own adventure' tale based on Lovecraft's novella.

It’s a no-brainer to recommend The Innsmouth Case if you’re a fan of H.P. Lovecraft, and especially if you like the original story The Shadow Over Innsmouth – arguably one of his best novella’s.

Why repeat the recommendation after a Lovecraft feature? It’s out now on PlayStation and Xbox and not to be missed if you’re a fan of the old school ‘choose your own adventures’ and perhaps more modern visual novels.

Following the original text, Robot Pumpkin Games’ text adventure, published by Assemble Entertainment, takes you deep into the fishing town of Innsmouth following the disappearance of Tabitha Marsh. As a detective, it’s your job to investigate all the clues, replaying every possible scenario for one of the 27 multiple endings.

In my opinion, it’s one of the best Lovecraft games available. You can read the original review here.

Key features in The Innsmouth Case include:

  • Become one with the Lovecraftian world around you, as each and every decision you make has a permanent effect on the ongoing story
  • The “interactive book” styled gameplay captivates with its perfect blend of offbeat humor and classic horror
  • Your fate is entirely in your hands; a total of 27 possible endings are to be discovered. Are you saving the day – or are your days in Innsmouth, and the world, numbered?
  • Explore 21st century Innsmouth, talk to more than 20 animated characters and solve the mystery of the disappearance of Tabitha Marsh
