H.P. Lovecraft’s Dagon is a horror Point&Click adventure based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu universe. Escape from Dr. West’s Hospital, explore the eerie town of Innsmouth and get behind the secret plans of the Esoteric Order of Dagon!

H.P. Lovecraft’s Dagon is developed using the Wintermute Engine (http://dead-code.org ) and currently planned for Windows PCs and Macs and will initially be available in German and English.

The game will feature 2 playable characters, plenty of lovely locations like morgues, graveyards and Innsmouth’s famous sewer system and interactions with a colourful array of lovely townsfolk.

History

The game initially started as a university project in 2009 but has now, in early 2013, been resurrected and is being redeveloped from scratch.

Features

sountrack by Jan Kavan from CBE Software ( http://www.cbe-software.com/ ), who already composed the music for titles like Dark Fall 2, Barrow Hill, Destinies, Ghost in the Sheet, Tale of a Hero , J.U.L.I.A. …


Happy Gaming!

Thanks for the info Sheriff. Its always good to hear about a new game being developed, especially by an Indie whos passion for making this game since 2009 is still strong.

I do like dark stories in games but dislike dark screens. I know that in games, dark is supposed to be scary but I hope they are planning some better light filtering or something to bring the screens alive. Its also nice to know that they list the game as being point & click so we know but I don't see anything about what perspective. Is it first or third person? IMO...Horror always plays better in the first person...

I hope he succeeds. H.P. Lovecraft stories have always been good vehicles for Adventure Games.

I remember playing Call of Cthulhu, Shadow of the Comet years ago and thoroughly. I have never found any upgrade of this game to play on newer machines but wish some company like GOG or Steam would make Shadow available. In my opinion it was one the most under rated Adventure Games to come along.

Anyway back to the subject, I'll be watching the progress of Dagon and would support any kickstarter effort.

To give credit, where credit is due. The music in Tale of a Hero was done by my friend Pavel Krychtalek. I did all the sound effects for that game. wink wave

Oh this is such great news! I'm an official H.P. Lovecraft addict and I LOVE the idea of his towns and places coming to life in a way that lets me explore his creations! Neat! Thanks for the good news and for giving me something game-related to look forward to! smile

Hi Gameboomers,

and thanks Ana for posting this!

I'm Thomas, the developer behind Dagon - just wanted to say thanks for the nice comments so far :-)

@GreyFuss: You are right, the screens are a bit to dark at the moment, when creating them I was only working on one machine where they looked ok, but in the future I'll test on a broader range of systems to ensure they look ok everywhere - dark is good, but at least you should be able to see things :-)

I'm keeping the website, Facebook and Twitter accounts up to date with the latest screenshots, news etc, so please have a look if you are interested!
