Haarlem, The Netherlands – Developer Zoetrope Interactive and publisher Iceberg Interactive are delighted to announce the release of their Lovecraftian Horror Adventure game Conarium, which releases today. From 10AM PDT onwards players can purchase this beautifully crafted tale at an SRP of $19.99, through Steam and major digital retailers. To celebrate the release of this highly anticipated successor to the Darkness Within series, Conarium will be at a 15% discount for the week of launch.

OVERVIEW
Conarium is a chilling Lovecraftian game, which follows a gripping story involving four scientists and their endeavor to challenge what we normally consider to be the ‘absolute’ limits of nature. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s novella "At the Mountains of Madness", but largely set after the original story.

KEY FEATURES
• A deep and suspenseful homage to H. P. Lovecraft with many secrets and Easter eggs.
• Ominous but wonderful graphics created using the Unreal 4 engine.
• Multiple endings.
• A haunting and atmospheric soundtrack.



Happy Gaming!

The big day was yesterday. I've been alpha and beta testing this one for several months now. If you like Lovecraftian games, this is a good one. It's very much story driven and has excellent graphics and a few scares.

It is mouse and keyboard. There are only 2 times in the game you have run from monsters. I just hid behind a rock until the one went around the corner! Otherwise, it is exploring, developing the story and puzzle solving. You move from a blizzard to underground caverns to a deep sea voyage in a submarine to a dilapidated mansion to shifting sands under the desert... very rich and varied environments.

Horror really isn't my thing but this looks intriguing for those who do like the genre. Those screens are excellent, with some oozing atmosphere and others surrealism.
