Welcome to the premiere episode of The Indie Shout-out, the video segment that gives indie games some much deserved love. Episode 01 features Eldritch, a rogue-like action game set in Lovecraftian lore. Despite what its Mincraft-like graphics might suggest, the game can be quite terrifying and challenging. Andrew gives you all the info you need on this indie gem. Just... try not to go mad while watching it.

      I just wanted to chime in on this game. I haven't played it for a while but I got really into it last year. Don't be fooled by the graphics, it has a very cool atmosphere and is a lot of fun to play. I guess because it's a rogue-like, the fear of dying gives you a very intense sense of fear when you hear those creepy sounds coming around the corner. Very cool game.

      I had forgotten about this. I remember when it first came out, I was interested, but I shun Early Access.
      I liked the idea that it was Lovecraftian, but I never really FELT it when watching people play it.

        Oh! I meant to say, I really like this feature. Keep it up! (Full Mojo Rampage is my vote)

        It doesn't really feel Lovecraftian to me. It's just using a creatures and more generic tropes from his material.

        That said it's REALLY good and you should play it!
