A semi-goofy, slightly buggy Lovecraftian game, May 18, 2016

I've always enjoyed Lovecraftian interactive fiction games. This one hits up a lot of the good elements: a cult, unspeakable horrors, creative monsters.

You explore a mansion, trying to rescue the father of a little girl from an untrustable friend.

Unfortunately, the game is marred by both bugs (like room text appearing in incorrect rooms) and questionable puzzle design (like having 20 hiding places to search to find 2 or 3 items).

Also, there is a lot of goofy humor interspersed throughout the game, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
