Indie devs love tapping into the warped world of H.P. Lovecraft for their horror inspirations. Seriously, go Google games based on the Cthulhu Mythos, you’ll be busy for awhile. Sure, it can be enticing to take on the role of an investigator determined to save the world from unending horror, but sometimes you just wanna stir up a little Elder Chaos of your own.
Not to worry, developer Emprom Game understands your need for the wanton destruction of the human race. Their new project Elder Chaos lets you cast aside the weakness of humanity to assume the role of an Old One. The game is still very much in development, but an Alpha demo is available for anyone curious about taking up the mantle of eldritch abomination.
The Good, The Bad, The WTF?
Few caveats about the project, there are some glaring typos in the demo trailer and the map based gameplay isn’t anything exceptional. That said, there is something rather compelling about spreading chaos and destruction through the various monsters in your service. Particularly when confronted with those meddling investigators who are working to undermine your efforts.
You can download the demo over on itch.io or follow Emprom Game on Twitter to stay updated on the project. Progress seems to be moving at a steady pace so hopefully a more polished version is on its way. In the meantime, get out there and wreck things.
