New H.P Lovecraft inspired horror game, Eresys, releases official alpha footage featuring multiple ominous monsters bearing tentacles.
The alpha footage from Eresys sets the mood for what disturbing experiences players might expect upon its official release. Eresys is an upcoming game that will be available on Steam, which will have players working together to conquer the unspeakable forces teased in the recently released footage.
Eresys is a new H.P Lovecraft inspired horror game by Dragonis Games that is coming out for PC players. It is described as a 4-person co-op survival horror experience. Back in early July, players were treated to the gameplay trailer that showcased elements of the co-op, as well as becoming accustomed to the aesthetic and atmosphere of the game. The gameplay trailer showcased a montage of tentacle monsters that players would have to survive against, and with the new official alpha footage released players now get an even closer look.
The story of Eresys has players embodying cultists who must close the void that brought monsters into their world, and to return the monsters from whence they came. In order to do this, resource management and exploration seem to be important factors towards what players will be accomplishing in the game. However, with the H.P Lovecraft monsters showcased in the new footage, this will be easier said than done. The ambience immediately sets the tone as players are greeted in a dark mist covered forest, the main setting for the game. Players witness rituals as well as a variety of tentacle monsters that will give viewers goosebumps. The teaser ends with the words “Coming Soon,” but Eresys has an expected release some time in 2023. This is a welcome addition to fans who want more Lovecraft games.
The listing on Steam further describes Eresys as featuring smart enemy AI mechanics, secrets, and unexpected events. Steam is a great place to play horror games, as horror is a popular genre among many independent studios who value what the gaming platform has to offer.
Based on what’s shown, Eresys will be another welcome addition to the Steam library with its horrifying scope, tension, and setting. H.P Lovecraft ideas aren’t new to horror settings, specifically in video games. However, not all references are as direct as Eresys seems to be, as other games are more nuanced in their inspiration. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because a more direct approach can oftentimes better scratch that specific itch for horror fans.
Eresys will launch for PC in 2023.
