Lovecraftian Survival Horror Game ‘Stygian: Outer Gods’ Announced for PC, PlayStation 5 [Teaser]

If you’ve polished off Alone in the Dark, and are looking to get your next Lovecraftian fix, Fulqrum Publishing and Misterial Games’ newly-announced Stygian: Outer Gods aims to fill in nicely. This upcoming first-person Survival Horror title mixes RPG elements with the deep lore and madness that you’ve come to expect with Lovecraftian games.

Set in the universe of 2019’s Stygian: Reign of the Old Ones (also published by Fulqrum Publishing), Outer Gods involves the events preceding the Black Day. You’ll take on the role of a mercenary accompanying the enigmatic girl to the foggy settlement of Kingsport to uncover her family’s dark secret. Unfortunately, you become shipwrecked, and soon encounter the nightmares that have haunted this place for centuries. You must now find your way out while preventing the coming of the ancient Outer Gods, all the while keeping your sanity.

Inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Kingsport holds its fair share of secrets, requiring you to solve puzzles and open new paths.

Mental afflictions will impact gameplay, requiring you to look for materials and recipes and craft the tools, medicines, and remedies necessary to withstand the horrors.

Stygian: Outer Gods will allow you a flexible play style. You’ll unlock new abilities, find eldritch artifacts, and experiment with different ways to interact with the environment. You’ll have plenty of have choices and multiple paths to progress, but you’ll also have to deal with the consequences.
