Lovecraftian horror title set on a space station on Mars, Moons of Madness, has been released on PC just in time for Halloween. This game has you making sure all systems are running as they should on your base while you outrun terrifying creatures.
“We wanted to make a game that touches on your inner struggles, as well as the threats you face from the outside, in true Lovecraftian manner,” says Ivan Moen, CEO of Rock Pocket Games. “Now that the game is finally out, we can’t wait to see how players will react.”
The highly anticipated game couples Lovecraftian horror with Mars exploration, and lets you assume the role of Shane Newehart, chief engineer on a research facility 140 million miles away from home. Your job is to make sure all systems run as they should on the Mars base, but after awakening from a disconcerting dream – you begin to realize that you may be in over your head. You’re quickly going to have to rely on your calm, your problem-solving skills and your ability to outrun terrifying creatures, as you delve deeper and deeper into a world of fear, conspiracy and madness.
Moons of Madness is set in the same thematic universe as Funcom’s The Secret World, where conspiracies and dark secrets are commonplace. And although The Secret World-players will recognize certain names and themes, playing one is by no means a prerequisite to enjoy the other.
Moons of Madness is available now on PC via Steam for $24.99. The game will be released on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 21st, 2020 for $29.99. For more information, visit the official website. Want to know our thoughts on the game’s opening section? Check out our hands-on from E3 2019.
