The Eldritch wiki last edited by bobafettjm on 08/22/14 09:32PM View full history

Gameplay

Eldritch has both action and stealth elements. Players can chose how to take on enemies based on preferred playstyle, however unlike other games which often tie the players actions to a moral choice system, Eldritch doesn't reward specific playstyles. Players use a variety of items, spells and weapons to advance through 4 worlds, descending deeper into Cthulhu mythos.
