Sanity is an irregular bedfellow, all too often replaced by the whisperings in the dark.
Strange creatures, weird science, and shadowy cults dominate the Cthulhu Mythos, intent on realizing their mad schemes to bring about the end of everything. Your mind will suffer - balancing a razor-thin line between sanity and madness, your senses will be disrupted until you question the reality of everything around you. Trust no one. Creeping shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.

Private Investigator Edward Pierce is sent to investigate the tragic death of the Hawkins family in their imposing mansion on the isolated Darkwater Island, off the shores of Boston. Soon enough, Pierce is plunged into a terrifying world of conspiracies, cultists, and cosmic horrors. Originally supported by a now long-dead whaling industry, the island is home to only desperate old sailors and decaying families of old money with nowhere else to go. They do not like outsiders.
The scenery, backgrounds, and ambiance are where the game reallly shine for me. It is dark and brooding as a slow and inevitable descent in to madness should be. Lovecraft was a master of building tension slowly and thoroughly over time in his stories and I feel that in this game. The story so far has held my intrest quite well, and I am fine with the slower paced dialogue driven gameplay for now because I have a feeling it is not going to last. Though the game is set back by its few technical shortcomings, what we're left with is a wonderfully macabre and interesting forray into the Cthulhu mythos.
Piecing together the truths of the narrative and unnearthing lore of the beyond keep you engaged inbetween the more 'grounded' moments of gameplay.

The lite RPG skill system feels like an odd inclusion, but does add an extra wrinkle to the flow of exploring, investigating, puzzle solving, and bits of action. Your decisions throughout also affect the story, giving you incentive to play again. If you're looking for a solid, narrative driven mystery title and don't mind the odd gameplay inconsistency here and there, I certainly recommend giving this one a look.
It is centred around the story, settings, and detective work, though stealth and action segments are present. There are occasionally multiple solutions to problems, and depending where you put skill points, options may change in actions and dialogue. There are a couple big endings and a number of smaller ones you can get that add on post-credits kinda like Fallout.
Ending will be reached regardless, puzzles not meant to be challenging, discovering the mystery not meant to be challenging. If there is a challenge, its the overcoming a naive belief. A solid game that uses video gamer tendencies against the player. A good step for tabletop RPGs becoming true to form on a video game platform.
