Gameplay in a nutshell:
You are a cultist intent on destroying the universe by summoning the Ancient One. Why? Damned if we know…
You can play on your own or with up to 3 friends in couch co-op.
You have 6 rounds to build up the required stats needed to use the ritual items, but you will need to figure out which stats those are through some trial and error.
You can visit 1 location per round and attempt the Lovecraftian stories at that location, to improve your stats.
Finally, put your stats to the test as you try to summon the Ancient One.
Will everyone pass or fail or will one of you betray the rest and grab all the glory?
Short and silly events in a Lovecraftian universe.
Randomized stories based on location.
Community created content. Experience new stories from the community or create your own.
Replayability and minimization of content fatigue by giving new or unseen stories a higher chance of appearing.
Short gameplay, ideal for those downtime moments or while in a queue for another game.
