Roguelike Edit

Roguelikes are a genre of role-playing games descended from the 1980 game Rogue. They typically feature randomly generated worlds, turn-based combat, and permanent player death. Eldritch's randomly generated worlds and permadeath are influenced by roguelikes.

Immersive Edit

Immersive sims are a loosely defined genre of first-person games primarily influenced by the work of Looking Glass Studios. They typically feature robust AI and physics simulations and non-linear levels which encourage the user to play creatively. Eldritch's non-linear levels and open-ended play styles are influenced by immersive sims.

H.P. Lovecraft Edit

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) was an influential author in the genres of horror and weird fiction. His most popular works deal with themes of terrible cosmic beings beyond the realm of human comprehension. Eldritch's setting is loosely based on a number of Lovecraftian tropes.
