Steam Store Description (from Ad Blurbs)

Three men of loose virtue are enjoying a drink in a local tavern, when they overhear the story of a rich and feeble old man who lives in town. They soon plot to take his treasures...

This is a very short (and free) interactive adaptation of The Terrible Old Man, a short story by H.P. Lovecraft. This adaptation was originally released back in 2015 - it was made in 30 days for the MAGS gamejam.

This Steam re-release features polished graphics, additional content, new music and Steam achievements!


  • An adaptation of the classic H.P. Lovecraft short story.
  • Traditional point and click adventure interface.
  • Unsettling hand drawn graphics and animation.
  • Fully animated cut scenes.
  • 640 x 360 widescreen resolution.
