Why are there no recent lovecraftian horror games/movies? Honestly, Lovecraftian horror is probably the best and spookiest
because Lovecraftian horror is atmospheric horror, things you can see, you have to create an ambiance and it requires talent. Today's gaming and movie industries need cheap shit tricks to work on larger audience, thus shitty horror movies with jumpscares. In games, there are at least some studios that still try to convey this kind of atmosphere.
the curse duh. anything that is explicitly lovecraftian suffers many set backs or even the company going bankrupt
bethesda is the publisher of the last real attempt to make a lovecraft based game. the company went under. the game was "call of cthulhu"
others that pepper to much of that stuff in suffer financial set backs
the powers that be dont like it much i suppose
Sunless sea seemed pretty good for this sort of thing (although I haven't gotten a chance to play it).
There is also eldritch. Despite the N64 quality models and textures, can be a bit spooky lurking through the dungeons (especially with the mummy)
Probably like this anon said >>17298279 Lovecraftian horror would take a lot of patience, atmosphere building, and subtlety but the problem there is that horror is such a niche genre now that no studio wants to take a risk on a niche subject within an already niche genre.
And to give Lovecraft any sort of justice, you'd have to have an at least somewhat decent budget.
I think one of the better Lovecraftian movies that I can think of (though it isn't recent by any means) is The Thing but on a small scale. Oddly enough, OP's image seems directly modeled after pic related from The Thing.
People are half baked in general and either don't respond strongly or completely over look the kind of subtitles and atmosphere building that lovecraft did so well. People talk shit on jump scares, but at the end of the day it sells.
here is the real story behind this great game (despite all the bugs)
I guy whos videos I enjoy watching has also started making games again. Ive watched a playthrough, its heavily Lovecraft inspired but is very clevver and well written. Its called The Consuming Shadow.
I hope I helped find you guys a good one.
Cthulhu, Azathoth, Yog Sothoth are all aliens nigger. Beyond the Wall of Sleep? Dreams in the Witch House?
