Today's batch of games are Lovecraftian horror. Or games which are reacting to Lovecraftian horror. Or games which are Lovecraftian, but not horror. Or vice versa. Turns out there's a lot more room for experimentation than ol' HPL ever considered.

  • Call of the Sea
  • Transient
  • Paradise Killer

Also, it turns out I already wrote this post! I bought and played all of these games over the winter.

Read reviews here: Four (or five) recent Lovecraftians (January 2021)

(That post also covers Old Gods Rising and Moons of Madness, which were not IGF entrants.)

Don't worry, I'll be back with new reviews tomorrow.
