Love Lovecraft? Of course you do! What about the board game Mansions of Madness? It’s inspired by the works of Lovecraft, so you might enjoy that too! Asmodee Digital is hard at work creating a video game adaptation of the board game, aiming for launch on PC in Q1 2019.
It’s called Mansions of Madness: Mother’s Embrace, developed by Luckyhammers. Taking place in 1926 in a creepy old mansion, you’ll encounter “traps, monsters, and other Lovecraftian horrors” (isn’t that always the case?) as you spiral even further into madness. There’s a mystery to be solved, if you and your team can end up making it out alive. Sounds pretty austere, and a throwback to the classic survival horror games many of us grew up with.
This will be a complete video game rather than that found in the Mansions of Madness companion app that you need the actual, physical board game to play. Unfortunately, there isn’t much to see in the teaser trailer, but you can imagine the kind of horrors that’ll be introduced when you do get a chance to try the game out. Hopefully, there’s additional information we can sift through soon.
In the meantime, check out the teaser below until Asmodee sees fit to give us more.
