Call of Cthulhu (Frogwares)

Call of Cthulhu looks suitably creepy in its E3 trailer

Blood Bowl and Styx: Master of Shadows developer Cyanide showed off a glimpse of its upcoming Call of Cthulhu RPG for E3.

While the latest trailer contains little, if any, actual gameplay, it appears to be in-engine at least and gives us a good sense of the game's ominous art direction.

The game puts players in the role of private investigator Edward Pierce as he investigates the death of a family on the not too subtly named Darkwater Island. Along the way he'll question his sanity as he encounters cultists, conspiracies, elder gods, and the like.

Call of Cthulhu game announced by Sherlock developer Frogwares

For PC and "next-gen consoles." Concept art revealed.

Sherlock Holmes and Magrunner developer Frogwares is working on a Call of Cthulhu game, publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced.

The reveal was made over Twitter, where the niche publisher released the following five pieces of early production art for the project.

Will it be an action game, a puzzle game like Sherlock, or maybe a hybrid horror adventure like Bethesda's 2005 Xbox and PC offering Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth? I've sent the publisher a request for more info, and will update if I find out more.
