It's not easy finding work when you've got a mountain of student debt and a PhD in Ancient History. And Miskatonic University is a venerable institution, a bastion of the old Boston Brahmin. Of course, she's heard the rumors; legendary madmen, strange disappearances, whispers of darker things. But they can't all be true, can they?
Miskatonic is a new episodic point-and-click adventure set in Lovecraft Country, the fictional New England of horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. Part 1 - The Inhuman Stain is available now.
Miskatonic is created by a lone developer using the Wintermute engine. It is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, but is an original story not based on any individual work.
A mystery with horror and comedy elements, Miskatonic tells the story of a newly hired professor at Miskatonic University, and her attempts to investigate suspicious events around campus.
In the tradition of classic LucasArts and Sierra adventures, Miskatonic offers a mix of sleuthing and puzzle-solving in a rich environment full of eccentric characters.
