Dagon: by H.P. Lovecraft is a beautifully crafted interactive narrative experience that tells Lovecraft’s classic short cosmic horror story in all its maddening glory.
It’s worth pointing out that Dagon: by H.P. Lovecraft is more of an interactive experience than a game. It places you into various scenes and the main character narrates his story. To move on you simply click on the required icon that’s located within the scene. There are also some hidden bits of Lovecraft lore to discover, but on the whole it’s a very linear experience.
Don’t expect to be fighting Lovecraftian monsters then, but what you do get in Dagon: by H.P. Lovecraft is a beautifully told retelling of Lovecraft’s 1919 masterpiece. It’s fully voiced and each scene is packed full of detail that really immerses you in the story. Lovecraft’s century old writing holds up well and the game does a great job building atmosphere and giving you glimpses of the maddening cosmic monstrosities and letting your imagination fill in the rest. Hopefully Bit Golem continues to create more experiences based on classic literature as it really is something special. Highly recommended.
