Lovecraftian Adventure “Conarium” Creeps in Today

The third game from Turkish developer Zoetrope, Conarium, releases today on Steam. Inspired by the mythos behind H.P. Lovecraft’s brain-twisting fantasy, Conarium follows four scientists as they attempt to push the limits of human nature and existence. Largely inspired by and set after Lovecraft’s short story, “At the Mountains of Madness”, Zoetrope is no stranger to the weird and horrifying, their two previous games also taking cues from Lovecraftian mythos.

With gameplay that looks at home in any adventure game, with collecting trinkets and tape dispensers to make nuclear fusion reactors and other oddities, Conarium looks to be right in Zoetrope’s wheelhouse. Conarium can be picked up on Steam later today.
