Default Cyclopean - Writing Sample

February 5th, 2009, 22:24
Cyclopean developer Scott sent news of a sample of writing from the Cthulhu inspired indie game. Here's a sample from a dream sequence titled Dream of the Witch Hunters:
“Smell that on the breeze? Brimstone. She’s the Devil’s whore for certain.”
Four figures, cloaked and cowled against the autumn night ride down a narrow, wooded track. The horses are reduced to a walk by the roots and stones of the trail, but the white plumes of their breath show they were recently ridden at a full gallop. The men are clearly searching for something. Two carry torches fashioned from bundles of dried rushes, and each has a sword, either on his hip or saddle. The two without lights keep a nervous hand near their weapons. Their voices carry through the crisp air and are as clear as if you sat among them.
More information.

Siding with the Mythos grants no insanity? That is against the grain although a nicely written encounter.

Ooh, lovely. Moral ambiguity, nudity, graphic violence, betrayal… what's not to like?

Isn't it Shub-Niggurath?

Or is my Cthulhu knowledge lacking?
