Lovecraft’s Untold Stories 2 Continues Fight this Month
Lovecraft’s Untold Stories 2 will launch on PC, Mac, and Linux devices on May 17, according to a press release issued by 1C Entertainment and LLC Blini Games. The action RPG features various rogue-like elements and draws on the fiction created by H.P. Lovecraft.
The sequel picks up where the first game left off, with a handful of upgrades. Crafting allows players to make consumable items and new equipment to better stave off the Unknown. Some allies will return from the previous game, and there are some new characters to meet, too. Lovecraft’s Untold Stories 2 uses procedural generation to create new eldritch locations as you fight monstrous creatures from beyond the stars. Bosses serve as checks for your abilities, barring the way forward until destroyed. The team assures players that it’s “more challenging than ever before.”
There are now six playable characters, a mix of old and new playstyles. The Detective, Witch, and Professor can now count on the help of the Medium, Veteran, and Alienist (an old way to refer to a psychiatrist). Swap between them at-will, using the best character for the job. With hundreds of items to wield against the monsters and side quests awarding critical resources, no two runs are alike.
1C Entertainment works out of Warsaw, Gdansk, Prague, Budapest, and Moscow. It provides production, distribution, and services for game developers in the region. They have launched over 100 titles, including classics such as King’s Bounty, Ion Fury, and many more.
LLC Blini Games is a multiplatform indie developer. A group of hardcore gaming experts from various spheres of the industry founded the studio in 2013.
