From the publisher's web site:

Something has gone horribly wrong at the dedication of Miskatonic University’s new library, and it is up to your group of eight friends to save the world from disaster. Which of your number has been possessed by an otherworldly consciousness? Which is a cultist trying to finish the dark work that was started? Find out in the Lurker in the Library, the Kickstarter-funded murder mystery dinner party game inspired by the cosmic horror stories of H. P. Lovecraft.

Comments / Trivia

The Lurker in the Library is a variation on murder mystery dinner party games. It is not necessary to have a copy of any other game to play this game.

Kickstarter backers received a physical product, including an audio CD. Since then, The Lurker in the Library has been made available as a print-and-play game, with the game made available in PDF and MP3 format and printed by the host. Unlike many other print-and-play games, this game has not been made available by the developer/publisher as a free download.

The Print-and-Play version of this game is a version of the game made available in electronic format and printed by players, who must also provide any other required accessories (such as dice.)

A sequel to this game, The Lurker in the Library: Spiritus Mundi was not successfully funded on Kickstarter.
