Call of Cthulhu is an adaptation of Chaosium’s tabletop pen & paper RPG. You play as ex war-vet and now alcoholic private investigator Edward Pearce. Your task is to solve the death of the Hawkins family whose stately home perished in an inferno. However, the groundskeeper isn’t impressed to find you lurking around. So you have to negotiate your way into the house.
Clues help you construct an image of the events that happened. However, the more you learn the closer you get to ‘the abyss of madness’.
