We’ve Got Some Steak, But Not Much Sizzle…
High An anime take on medieval Britain and King Arthur.
Low The game only recaps the anime, and not much else.
WTF Owning a bar that is the hat of a giant pig is normal in this world.
HP Lovecraft adaptations always interest me. As a fan of the author’s work, I’m aware of how much material it offers for adaptation into other media. Videogames have proven especially fond of his material, recycling plots, themes, and especially monster designs since the days of text adventures. Yet Hidden Object adaptations have been oddly scarce on the ground. Despite a large number of stories which would be remarkably easy to adapt, I’ve only been able to find word of three titles. Mountains of madness, reviewed here, Cats if Ulthar, which I’m trying to find a copy of, and this game, Haunted Hotel: Charles Dexter Ward. Mountains of Madness was a stellar game – how does this one change the HPL adaptation average?
