Lovecraftesque is the GMless storytelling game of brooding cosmic horror you’ve been waiting for. You tell the story of a lone Witness at the mercy of strange and terrifying events. The game helps you create a slow-building mystery, culminating in a climactic scene of horror.
- You create your own monsters and mystery that feel like something out of Lovecraft's notebook.
- All the players contribute clues to surprise and creep each other out.
- The rules ensure that the story flows seamlessly, as if an invisible GM were guiding it.
- There won't be any Mi-Go or Deep Ones—you'll get a completely fresh take on the genre.
