Shadow Of The Comet: Call Of Cthulhu Infogrames / Interplay 1993

This is the best of a series of adventure games made by Infogrames based on the horror writer H.P. Lovecraft's style of stories though it's not based on a specific story of his. In 1834, in the small New England fishing village of Illsmouth, the distinguished British scientist Lord Boleskine lost his mind. After studying ancient manuscripts of evil repute, he had travelled to this place to observe the passing of Halley's comet. What he observed that night, however, turned him into a raving lunatic. Now, 76 years later, Halley's comet is coming back, and young astronomer John T. Parker has travelled to Illsmouth to try to uncover the truth in Boleskine's wild claims, and see the comet for himself. It's a wonderfully creepy and atmospheric game. The CD-ROM version released in 1994 has the following extra features: Full speech, Mouse control system, new intro sequence, bonus program: "Visit To The Lovecraft Museum" which lets you walk around a small museum and examine various artifacts on display, from Lovecraft's stories.
