Lovecraft's Untold Stories is a very funny roguelike that will especially delight Lovecraft fans for their narrative and setting.

Had the developers simply slapped the Lovecraft label on the game and not explored the rich mythos inherent in the name, this could have been a disaster of a game, but instead – and despite of its faults – Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is a rich and intoxicating set of tales weaved together, balancing mystery, combat, and madness together in an engrossing experience.

An interesting mix of genres (rogue-lite, twin shooter, RPG...), that shines with its atmosphere and exploration bits, but that results a little bit plain in the way the action unfolds. It doesn't help some design choices, like the repetition of the whole level if we die... but if you like Lovecraft, it can hook you.
