Insanity has always been a major theme in Lovecraft’s Call of Cthulhu franchise. Cyanide’s new video game Call of Cthulhu is no different.

Pierce originally arrives at Darkwater Island after being hired to investigate the death of an artist and her family, but his hunt makes him fall under the influence of the Great Dreamer Cthulhu. To solve the case, Pierce will need to sacrifice his sanity.
