The Innsmouth Case Slithers Onto Nintendo Switch

Solve a Fishy Mystery in Dangerous Waters

Lovecraft fans, you’re in luck. Horror, comedy, fish monsters, hard-boiled detective cliches, inexplicable surfer dudes–The Innsmouth Case has it all. We thought it was fun and stylish, if a little simple, on the PC release, so we’re looking forward to seeing this “scary-comedy-text-adventure” arrive on the Switch. This harrowing and hilarious journey follows a detective of debatable skill and questionable cleverness, i.e. you, on a quest to find a missing girl. Problem is, that girl disappeared in the remote fishing village of Innsmouth, which isn’t fond of strangers and has a long history of missing persons. If you’re not careful, the next person to disappear will be you!

Stay alert. Stay safe. Solve the case. This is the only way to survive… The Innsmouth Case. This game features a highly branching narrative, but almost every branch leads to a messy death and a bad ending, so you’ll have to be determined and resourceful to see things through to the end. There is more than one way to solve the case, of course, but there are far more ways to fail miserably. Fortunately, it’ll be hilarious no matter what, so get ready to enjoy the cosmic horror ride.

Game features include:

  • Become part of a stirring story in the Lovecraft universe, where every decision you make has a lasting effect on the story.
  • This interactive book will captivate you with its perfect blend of offbeat humor and classic horror.
  • What fate awaits you in Innsmouth is entirely in your hands; a total of 27 possible endings want to be discovered. Are you saving the day – or are your days numbered
  • Explore 21st century Innsmouth, talk to over 30 animated characters and solve the mystery of the disappearance of little Tabitha Marsh.
