    Several 100K will buy it if it is like DCoT with a touch of Condemned/Dead Space creep & less shooty but still fps style. I wonder how deep into the rpg the game will go.

    Thinking of that... i really wouldn´t mind an open world like Elder Scrolls infested with cults, portals to places that scratch on your sanity and things that normally wouldn´t happen in a video game but that you know if you read LC's books.

    Just put some really old fish somewhere near you when playing to enhance the atmosphere. smile

    I hope it isn't an amnesia like game. Call of Cthulhu is eldritch horror. It only works if the player can not beat, survive or even understand what's going on. The game has to end in and be about hopelessness.

    Just my two cents.

    o DEEVIUS o said:No fucking way!! I've always wanted to see Call of Cthulu, I became a Beth fan too late to see the old ones, does this have anything to do with Bethesda?

    "RPG-Investigation game with psychological horror and stealth mechanics, set in a deeply immersive world." - That pretty much sums up the best possible type of game in history!
    No, you're thinking of Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth, which was published by Bethesda Softworks (not developed by Bethesda Game Studios). The series this post is about is also called Call of Cthulhu, but it's not related. It's based on a tabletop RPG, and in turn all of them are based on the original Lovecraft story.
