Eldritch announced

A bit of digging on the internet reveals to me the existence of

Eldritch is the first title by two-man indie studio Minor Key Games (consisting of David Pittman and his brother J. Kyle Pittman).

David tells me that both he and his brother walked away from stable careers in the AAA space to make this game, which is pretty ballsy. Luckily, I can see people quite liking this title. Aside from the internet’s deep and abiding love for all things Lovecraftian, Eldritch features a Minecraft-ish aesthetic that tends to ring a certain bell for gamers.

The feature list:

• Unearth ancient secrets and find your way to freedom!
• Sneak, fight, and explore strange worlds!
• Invoke mystical powers to augment your play style!
• Randomly generated levels provide fresh challenges and opportunities!
• Unlock shortcuts to jump directly to deeper dungeons!

Eldritch is going to be released for Windows on October 21, 2013. Until then, it remains on Steam Greenlight, where you may wish to upvote it. (As for me, I will be giving the pre-release build a shot soonish so I can give you some impressions.)
