Video: What exactly is Eldritch: Mountains of Madness?

Run to the hills.

Eldritch was one of the many mini-gems of 2013, a procedurally generated survival horror game that placed a handful of neat systems in the player's hands as they struggle to stay alive.

It's done well enough to earn itself an expansion, too, with Mountains of Madness. Christian Donlan absolutely loves it, and together with our YouTube editor Ian Higton they've prepared a little look and guide to its challenging world. There's some suspicious business with penguins involved, so I'd highly recommend it.
