Released back in June 2017 for the PC, the Lovecraftian horror adventure inspired by At the Mountains of Madness is finally making its way to PS4 and Xbox One in February this year.

Following the story of “four scientists and their endeavour to challenge what we normally consider to be the ‘absolute’ limits of nature”, you as Frank Gilman awake in a strange room with no recollection other than you are in an Antarctic base near the South Pole.

Those familiar with Lovecraft’s story can probably see where this may be going, and while only inspired by the original story, the events in the game are considered to take place after this.

Playing out like you would expect an adventure game of this nature, you will walk around and explore the atmospheric environs, solve the odd puzzle and gradually uncover the mystery that surrounds the place and people.

The game does tout multiple endings, however, including secrets and Easter eggs, and was generally well received upon its original release.

It’s good to see the Cthulu mythos receiving more love on a grander scale as of late – what with the recent Call of Cthulu game as well as the likes of Bloodborne – as the universe and its stories provide such intriguing material for horror games.

Hopefully the ports of this adventure will impress, and that we’ll receive a proper set release date (day) soon.

I started gaming with the release of the PS1 - Crash Bandicoot and Ridge Racer Revolution being the first 'real' games I ever set eyes on - and have been enthralled with the medium ever since. I particularly love strategy and horror games, the sort offered by titles such as Total War and Silent Hill, though I also have a soft spot for a good RPG. I studied Journalism at university in the hopes of progressing into writing about games, but my 'real job' is as a postman. You'll most likely find me covering indie games as I'm always on the look out for interesting little titles, and generally I stick to the PC and PS4 platforms. I'm not interested in MMOs or really any kind of online game, and I have an unusual and frankly worryingly expensive obsession with collecting gaming guide books, but aside from that I like to think I'm a well rounded average gamer.
