In a press release put out today Assemble Entertainment announced their upcoming game, The Innsmouth Case. A quirky adventure game inspired by the works of legendary horror author, H.P. Lovecraft.
In The Innsmouth Case, you assume the role of a detective looking into the disappearance a young girl named Tabitha Marsh. The trailer (see below) is a little short on gameplay details, but does showcase the games style and sense of humor. Rather than going in a more straightforward psychological horror direction that Lovecraft settings tend to lend themselves to, they’ve chosen a more comedic approach with a cartoony aesthetic and quirky characters. What can be parsed from screenshots however, it seems that The Innsmouth Case is an adventure game that plays out a lot like an old choose your own adventure book, even going as far as to be presented as a book on screen. The press release highlights the importance of the players choices and that there will be multiple ways to solve the mystery.
The Innsmouth Case will be available on June 23rd for PC $12.49 USD and on iOS and Android for $5.49 USD.
