Developer Plot Twist and publisher Rogue Games have revealed The Last Case of Benedict Fox, a gorgeous metroidvania-style action-adventure game inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. The game stars the titular detective, Benedict Fox, who investigates the brutal murder of a couple and the mysterious disappearance of their child. As expected from a project drawing inspiration from Lovecraft’s oeuvre, players can look forward to diving deep into a universe filled with unfathomable, supernatural threats; however, other than fighting demons and other vile monstrosities, exploring the minds of the recently deceased will also play a key role in the project, with Benedict having to explore various surreal landscapes littered with the physical manifestations of that person’s feelings and traumatic memories. Here’s a trailer to give you a brief glimpse into the madness that awaits us:

The game will be coming to PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series.
