Conarium new Lovecraftian game

Recommended Posts

Mortagon

A new game available on Steam soon, here's the official synopsis:

Conarium is a chilling Lovecraftian game, which follows a gripping story involving four scientists and their endeavor to challenge what we normally consider to be the ‘absolute’ limits of nature. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s novella "At the Mountains of Madness", but largely set after the original story.

You, as Frank Gilman, open your eyes inside a room filled with strange, pulsating noises. Patterns of lights executing a Danse Macabre on the walls is presented by a queer device on the table. Having recalled nothing other than that you’re in Upuaut, an Antarctic base located near south pole, you find the place deserted and have a distinct feeling of something being terribly wrong. Somehow knowing that your memories cannot guide you enforces a strange feeling of vulnerability, a familiar yet alien sensation of being a part of a peculiar whole... Soon you will discover that having used the device during the expedition, you have died but then returned subtly changed, speaking of strange memories and of strange places. You have lost something important or gained something sinister...

Explore the antarctic base, as well as dreams and visions. Study clues, unlock secrets but avoid macabre beings at all cost.

 

And a trailer:

Is "Steam" one of those online-gaming things? I've heard the name but am not quite sure what Steam is actually. :(

Steam at its most basic level is more like a shop for PC games ( but it is also an on-line way of playing games together, forums, sharing video of gaming, social interaction ) but you don't have to make use of any of the extra features if you just want to buy and play a game.

 

You go to the steam website - download and install the Steam app to your PC/Mac/Linux, make a login account and then you are good to go.

 

If you buy a game it downloads and installs to your computer through the Steam app.

I've played about an hour of this so far. The graphics are nice, but the controls are a bit clunky. If you've played Fallout you'll recognize the familiar "mouse over all the drawers to see which ones open" mechanic. There are a lot "documents" to find and read, I haven't gotten very far so have yet to see another character/NPC (besides a shadowy figure) so we'll see how the animation is. Seems atmospheric, at least.
