Sometimes, less is more. Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness is a game that knows its limits and strives to do its best with the resources it has. The story is short, but well written and fascinating, the English acting is good and background illustrations are often inspiring. Considering that the team is small and so was the budget, their work deserves to be praised.

As it is, Mountains of Madness is fun as a casual diversion for Lovecraft lovers and Cthulhuphiles, and is nostalgia-adjacent for those of us who grew up around Guybrush Threepwood.

If you’re a fan of 90s adventure games, or a fan of Lovecraft, and are willing to push through Mountains of Madness’ more taxing puzzles, you’ll get a kick out of it. The ending is a satisfying one that sets up a sequel without leaving you hanging. It’s just a shame that the game tries to stretch itself a little too far. As is, Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness is an interesting achievement, just not a great one.

Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness gives you everything you would expect from an old-school Lovecraft themed point and click adventure game. However, sometimes less is more.

Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness is a fantastic title, able to fully experience the horror of the lovecraftian novel by the same name to anyone who approaches it: in fact, all the topical and typical elements of the father of the occult can be found in it, outlining an intricate narrative sequence, mysterious at the right point and full of well-characterized characters. Once again the graphic adventure proves to be the best videogame genre for Lovecraftian works of inspiration and / or transposition, as they are mainly focused on investigation. In short, a game that harks back to the glories of the past, managing to characterize itself and impress its mark, demonstrating the true strength of the Italian videogames industry.
