Game: Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth

Developer: Headfirst Productions

Publisher: Bethesda Softworks / 2K Games

Available On: Xbox 360 and PC

Developed by Headfirst Productions, Call of Cthulhu – Dark Corners of the Earth is a first-person horror game that combines intense action and adventure elements. You will draw upon your skills in exploration, investigation, and combat while faced with the seemingly impossible task of battling evil incarnate.

Set during the 1920s, Call of Cthulhu is based on the Cthulhu Mythos of HP Lovecraft, an American writer of fantasy and horror and is produced in conjunction with the developers of the Call of Cthulhu pen and paper RPG, Chaosium Inc. Lovecraft’s stories tell of unthinkable evil, psychic possession, and mythical worlds. His work has profoundly influenced numerous fantasy and science fiction writers, including Stephen King and Anne Rice.

The technology powering Call of Cthulhu has provided Headfirst with the means to present an incredibly detailed and accurate depiction of the sights and sounds of this unique 1920’s New England setting. A diverse range of cutting edge special effects is utilized to ensure both unprecedented levels of realism and an exact portrayal of your mental degradation.

Pre-orders for the digital version of the hotly anticipated PC game, Afterfall: InSanity are being taken as of today. Nicolas Games, the producer and publisher of the game decided to lead a unique and unprecedented marketing campaign by surprising everyone with the ‘Afterfall: InSanity $1 pre-order’ project, which in short gives players the opportunity to pre-order the game for a single dollar.

Afterfall: InSanity for just $1? Revolutionary and controversial debut method of a new game.

The pre-orders can be made directly from the game’s website http://www.afterfall-universe.com. Once the company’s target goal is achieved Afterfall: InSanity will be distributed among the p2p (peer 2 peer) networks such as Torrent. Additionally, 10% of the revenues will be donated to one of the largest charity organisations in the world. However, if the number of pre-orders does not reach the 10 million copy sales target, then the revenue collected will be donated to the charity in its entirety. Besides the game itself, players will receive the soundtrack as an added bonus, and those who will register their order will immortalized as part of the game by having their names included as part of the credits.

Nicolas Games is throwing down the gauntlet to the whole industry. ‘As an independent distributor we can afford to try starting a revolution. Being absolute game fanatics ourselves, we want to prove that high-class games do not have to be associated with high price tags. Our goal is to attract players from all over the world and offer them a great deal; if we can get 10 million people to buy our game we will sell it for just 1 dollar. I strongly believe that this news will electrify the whole market and together we will set a new record,’ Tomasz Majka, the CEO of Nicolas Games said.

Since the development team of the survival horror Dead Island was occupied with solving various existing errors in the game, Techland decided that Bloodbath Arena DLC will be released later than originally announced.

The announcement was made via facebook, more information will be published next week.
