A New Surreal Game Combines Lovecraftian Vibes & Analog Horror

Even the game's announcement trailer is unnerving.

If you are an avid horror fan who, as years go by, has become too jaded and desensitized to repetitive jumpscares and other run-of-the-mill tropes, then this upcoming indie game is exactly what you need to fall in love with the genre once again.

Check out The Dream Of A Cockspur, a relatively obscure psychological horror game that combines Lovecraftian vibes and analog horror, currently being created by Game Developers known as roccay and m10.

Announced recently with an unnerving trailer, which resembles an eerie combination of Jack Stauber-style claymation with sequences from the Bakemonogatari anime series, The Dream Of A Cockspur tells a story of six investigators who have come to examine a mysterious celestial body that had landed on a desolate island. However, as their two-week assignment draws to a close, their return boat suffers damage, trapping them on the island for an extended period.

According to the developers, the game features a surrealistic art style, abundant point-and-click puzzles crucial for survival, an abundance of books, and a protagonist with a passion for reading. Additionally, there's a therapy dog included, presumably to aid players in restoring their sanity after confronting the horrors of the island firsthand.

With the game's Steam page itself being stylized as something akin to SCP files or the writings of a disturbed individual, it is challenging to offer further details about The Dream Of A Cockspur at this time. Although the title appears to be in its early stages of development, a playable demo version is already accessible and can be downloaded for free by clicking this link.
