Conarium [Steam, Official Site] looks absolutely fantastic! A chilling Lovecraftian horror with some impressive visuals and it's still coming to Linux. Seems it might be quite soon too.

We've known since July last year that they planned a Linux release, but we've been left waiting. That wait will end soon, as the developer just said this on Steam:

Hello, we are working on Linux version currently, hoping to enable it for the next update ;)

This is great news, hopefully they won't have too many issues as it is an Unreal Engine title, and we all know the state it has been in with previous developers encountering many issues.

About the game:

Conarium is a chilling Lovecraftian game that follows the gripping story of four scientists and their endeavour to challenge what we normally consider to be the "absolute" limits of nature. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's novella At the Mountains of Madness, but largely set after the original story.

Conarium is full of secrets and Easter eggs, multiple endings and an atmospheric soundtrack. Sounds like it's pretty good too, as it has been reviewed pretty well overall.

Awesome, eagerly waiting this one!

First Observer (Cyberpunk) and soon Conarium (Lovecraftian), my two favorites genres.

I'll be buying this one, for sure. Looks great and I could use another First-person fix after finishing Observer a couple of night ago!

Lovecraft himself was apparently a bit of a shithead. But, he created a world that is ripe for picking!

Looks really nice! This is a great time for Lovecraft, with this game on the way and the upcoming "Call of Cthulhu: The Official Videogame" in early 2018, as well as the promising looking "Moons of Madness".

And don't forget the charmingly bizarre, At the Mountains of Madnessinspired Eldritch

"Moons of Madness" looks rad, any indication it's coming to Linux?
