"Special" MovesEdit

Apart from the normal FPS movement conventions, Eldritch features a few special moves not as often encountered:

  • The Explorer can pull themselves up on a ledge that is two blocks high by moving toward it, jumping, and holding the jump button down. If a ledge can be reached by any means, it can be climbed in this manner.
    • One caveat: the Explorer must be able to fit into the space they're trying to climb into. If only one block wide, the space can only be accessed by jumping from the crouching position.
  • The Explorer can slide into crouch mode. This is achieved by sprinting and then pressing the crouch button. A must-have maneuver for escaping Denizens!

These moves are explained in a few books located across from the spawning point in the Library.
