Lovecraft's Untold Stories combines action-RPG elements with roguelite gameplay. It's set in a universe inspired by the works of legendary horror writer H.P. Lovecraft.

Along the way, players must gather knowledge in order to face the looming threat of the Great Old Ones. Check out the trailer for Lovecraft's Untold Stories below:


Each level in Lovecraft's Untold Stories is randomly generated. Players can choose from 5 different characters, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, and skills. Players can customize characters with new weapons, items, and artifacts, which can also be improved. The characters on offer are as follows:

  • Witch - high damage, can teleport and use elemental shields, very low HP
  • Thief - melee specialist, uses stealth to deal damage

These five characters each have a different story. Each story will take the characters to different locations inspired by Lovecraft's works.

Special levels in Lovecraft's Untold Stories bring players face to face with Great Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, Dagon, Shub-Niggurath, and Azathoth.
