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.

This book includes everything you need to play, as well as 17 different scenarios and other material to inspire you.

LOVECRAFTESQUE IS A GAME FOR 2-5 PEOPLE AND TAKES 3-4 HOURS TO PLAY.

Lovecraftesque won Roleplaying Game of the Year at the Gioco Dell'Anno 2018, was nominated for the Golden Geek game of the year 2015, and was a finalist in the IGDN awards for best setting and best art 2016.
