Call of Cthulhu, the official videogame inspired by Chaosium's classic pen and paper RPG, brings you deep into a world of creeping madness and shrouded Old Gods within Lovecraft's iconic universe.

1924. Private Investigator Pierce is sent to look into the tragic death of the Hawkins family on the isolated Darkwater Island. Soon enough, Pierce is pulled into a terrifying world of conspiracies, cultists, and cosmic horrors. Nothing is as it seems. Sanity is an irregular bedfellow, all too often replaced by whisperings in the dark. Strange creatures, weird science, and sinister cults dominate the Cthulhu Mythos, intent on realizing their mad schemes to bring about the end of everything.

Your mind will suffer - between sanity and psychosis, your senses will be disrupted until you question the reality of everything around you. Trust no one. Slinking shadows hide lurking figures… and all the while, the Great Dreamer prepares for his awakening.

Death Mark

Release date: October 31st
The Tokyo metropolitan area’s H City. In this suburban city, a strange rumor has been spreading recently. Those who possess the “mark” will die. The “mark” is unexpectedly engraved onto the body, as if it was a chewed up birthmark, and is said to result in an unknown death.

As a matter of fact, a strange incident occurred where someone met a suspicious death. This incident has become an urban legend, and has propagated various speculation such as it being the result of a ghost encounter somewhere or unknowingly coming into contact with a curse.

Having lost your memory, you stand before a western-style house said to protect those who possess the “mark.” As if drawn to something, when the doors to the house open, you’re greeted by a beautiful doll who is the lord of the mansion.

“Welcome to Kujou Mansion.”

The doll continued to speak.

“You will die if you stay like this.”

“But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a way to be saved.”

The countdown to “death” had already begun…

Rym 9000

Release date: November 1st
UPDATE: Although pre-orders are now available, Rym-9000 will now launch at some point next year.
Rym 9000 is a vertical shoot’em up in which you fight your way through 5 levels of concentrated action to reach the Moon and find the Rym 9000 treasure; a legendary relic left by an ancient civilization, buried in the Moon for a generation of pilots to find and “turn the world upside down.”

With an emphasis on haywire motion and experimental visuals from Sonoshee, along with a cyber-stellar soundtrack from Roex, Rym 9000 will take you on a chaotic trip of challenging but fair hyperkinetic fun.

Achievements are set in place for the player to unlock World Log entries and know more about the world they’re venturing into, as well as understanding the history behind the treasure that the protagonist and millions of other pilots are setting out to find.

Fight your way through relentless hordes of enemies, defeat each area’s boss all the way up to the Moon’s guardian “Diesel”, and register your score upon beating the game on a leaderboard that records the top 10 players in the world.

The PlayStation 4 version features several improvements, including performance updates, online leaderboards and Tate mode support.
