Lovecraftian games’ reviews on the way!

Lately, I’ve been getting into the works of H.P. Lovecraft (again) and decided to check out some games based on his style of horror-fiction. I really like his idea that forbidden knowledge is attainable, but that a human will go mad trying to obtain it. I greatly enjoy that not all the answers will ever be available and sometimes things don’t make sense. I also really, really love that most of his stories are highly psychological.

It’s heavily influenced by the culture of the Redguards as well as the Akaviri and Imperials. I’d even say it was influenced by many cultures in Tamriel, but those seem most dominate in the architecture and furnishings.
