Minor Key Games recently put out a pretty big update for their first-person action game Eldritch, it sounds great too.

The developer, David Pittman, mentioned on Twitter how it was the biggest update to the game in almost five years and they did it simply because "I just kinda felt like it!". Well, can't argue with that, great to see Eldritch seeing support so long after release.

The "Eldritch Reanimated" update includes some notable technical changes like 64-bit binaries, a new audio engine, FXAA, Vsync and unlocked timestep options. Not stopping there it also has extra content too like dozens of new rooms to explore, new enemies, new weapons, a new help menu and so on.

Awesome!

I already loved the game as it was. Can't wait to explore all the new stuff and revisit the rest!

I have never seen this played without it being a speedrun. Is it fun to play other ways (like stealth, etc.)?

Playing stealthily, I found it very tense, atmospheric and fun to explore.

I think this a rather underrated game, especially for those on low-spec hardware (worked perfectly on my aging integrated graphics).

I remember playing this game like 4 years ago and didn't like it, but now I'll check the update

I absolutely loved playing this. I'll definitely give it another run through when I'm finished with XCOM 2.
