Two New Screens – February 17, 2014
The above is a test render of one of Innsmouth’s lovely inhabitants. This friendly chap and a couple of his mates are populating the gameworld of H.P. Lovecraft’s Dagon, an upcoming horror point-and-click adventure that’s currently in pre-production.
The town of Innsmouth is secretly run by the notorious Esoteric Order of Dagon which, in turn, is headed by Dr. Herbert West, the warden of Innsmouth Hospital for the Criminally Insane.
Innsmouth, New England
November 1927
In late October, Prohibition Agents get word on suspicious behaviour on a small island just off the coast of Innsmouth. Fishermen report sightings of strange looking people hiding between the rocks of the otherwise deserted island, and strange chantings coming from there by night.
Convinced this is a coverup for alcohol smugglers the department sends out a landing team to investigate … an investigation that swiftly turns into a nightmare that only one of them survives with luck.
Stranded at Innsmouth’s shore he is found by West’s men and brought to Hospital. This is where the adventure begins …
The game will feature two playable characters, plenty of lovely locations like morgues, graveyards and Innsmouth’s famous sewer system and interactions with a colourful array of lovely townsfolk.
It will also feature roughly 15 characters (including the two playable protagonists) and 40 scenes.
Order of Dagon Games is an indie game development studio founded by Thomas Busse in 2013.
H.P. Lovecraft’s Dagon, its first title, started as a university project in 2009. The original plan back then was to find a publisher and to create a full game out of the project. As so often happens, however, life got in the way of this plan and the game had to be abandoned for awhile.
2013, however, has seen the rebirth of the idea. The story is written, the puzzles designed, the characters have background stories dating back to the stone age (and some of them much, much further back, naturally, this is Lovecraft after all)…
Thomas Busse is currently working alone. However, the plan is to launch a Kickstarter campaign in October in order to secure funds to hire some helping hands.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
