After announcing their new project back in 2015, Zoetrope Interactive Studios’ latest Lovecraftian Horror game, Conarium, is set for a PC Release on June 6, 2016.
Largely set after the events of H.P Lovecraft’s novella, At the Mountains of Madness, Conarium puts players in the shoes of four scientists on an Antarctic expedition. With the base deserted and your memories lost, the objective of the game is to search for clues throughout the isolated base, discover the truth behind the mysterious device your team uncovered and avoid the hidden Macabre demons at all cost.
The game will feature many things to keep the lovers of the dark occult entrenched in Conarium’s chilling and atmospheric world, including multiple endings for players to experience. Also, it wouldn’t be a true H.P Lovecraft homage unless the game was riddled with secrets and hidden Easter eggs referencing all of the Authors infamous works.
Originally revealed as “Mountains of Madness” and later titled, “Transcend”, Zoetrope didn’t settle on the name, Conarium, for their latest project until the studio announced their publishing partnership with fellow horror enthusiasts, Iceberg Interactive.
While our preview of Conarium was not overwhelmingly positive, Zoetrope Interactive has a strong pedigree in developing Lovecraftian horror games for their devoted audience. The studio is most well known for their work on the Darkness Within franchise, which currently spans two titles. The theming of mystery and the dark occult spans across all of this studios games.
While Zoetrope may still be a small time indie studio located in Istanbul, Turkey, they have reached a new level of awareness by teaming up with Iceberg Interactive, who are known for their quality assembly of both midsize and indie tier developers. A few games of note in their lengthy lineup of diverse titles include the likes of Killing Floor 2, Endless Space, and Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.
