Remnants of R’lyeh is a first person horror adventure that draws inspiration from H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos as you attempt to escape before an ancient underwater city rises to the surface.
In Remnants of R’lyeh you are a sailor whose ship is wrecked by a giant Lovecraftian monster. After donning your diving gear you then try to survive as you discover ancient mysteries of the deep, fend off cultists and grotesque monsters, and come face to face with huge maddening Lovecraftian monstrosities.
The current demo build of Remnants of R’lyeh features two large sections – an underwater section and another section that takes place on a mysterious island. The gameplay is more focused on exploration and puzzle solving than combat, but there’s still a nice selection of grotesque monsters to deal with and some giant maddening monstrosities.
At the moment Remnants of R’lyeh has a lot of rough edges, especially with regards to sound design, monsters clipping through walls and grammatical mistakes in the dialogue. Aside from that though, it’s a very promising game. The underwater section is probably the strongest, but both sections have some great environments to explore, the puzzles are interesting and the monsters are very freaky. It’s shaping up to be a great blend of Lovecraftian horror and survival horror well worth diving into.
