    My interest piqued after reading an article about this game during Game Informer's E3 coverage. However, when I search for the game's website and twitter now they bring up 404 errors. The game is still listed on the PS site and Focus' site.

    Does anyone know what is happening to this game?

    The developers twitter is still active, tweeting about it as recently as last month, so unless something happened very recently it seems like everything is coming along fine.

    The title of this game doesn't instill much confidence in its quality. Why they would include "The Video Game" in the title is beyond me, it doesn't make a good impression.

    @ll_exile_ll: It even says "the official video game"

    Like their other game with the stellar title: "Werewolf the Apocalypse the Official Video Game ".

    Aside from being terrible naming, calling it the "official game" is totally meaningless. It's not as if it's even a licensed game, Lovecraft's work is in the public domain at this point. Anyone could make anything based on his stories, there is absolutely nothing that makes this "official."

    The game is supposed to be an adaptation of the Call of Cthulhu tabletop game - which isn't public domain.
