I am a fan of MPC so it is no surprise I wanted try out this new revamp of an old game. Carcosa: Rise of the Cult is a revamped edition of the original “Rise of the Cult.” This Lovecraftian experience had plenty of easter eggs for those who love Lovecraft but still provides enough information for the inexperienced to enjoy.
The theming and narrative was immersive and engaging. These experiences encourage theory development and don’t necessarily give you black and white answers but I love the lore development. The narrative was well developed for me and I enjoyed the contrast in two stories overlapping. The use of artifacts, ages newspapers, scrolls, and more really give you a sense of time and place. The puzzle is multi-step and quite precise but you get your money's worth out of it with time spent.
Overall, I greatly enjoyed this and recommend if you enjoy immersive story telling with a bit of puzzling!
