Dyer Expedition is a frostbitten cosmic horror adventure inspired by Lovecraft’s At The Mountains of Madness, which sees you investigating an ill-fated scientific expedition in the Antarctic.
Taking place in 1931 in the Antarctic, Dyer Expedition is a cosmic horror adventure where you travel to the Antarctic to investigate the disappearance of a group of scientific researchers. It appears that they had been researching mysterious ancient mechanisms that were found deep within a cave. A cave which emitted a bellowing sound that’s capable of driving men to madness. You’ll need to explore, read researchers’ notes and solve puzzles as you try to get to the bottom of exactly what happened there.
It could perhaps do with implementing a bit more of a “show don’t tell” design philosophy, as it’s heavily reliant on excessively long notes at the moment, but aside from that it’s a very promising game. The retro styled visuals work well, the story is compelling and you really feel like you’re trespassing in a place that wasn’t meant for mortal men.
