I Summon Thee!
I Summon Thee!.taf
|Walpurgus Night, 1951: Duncan MacDevon's manor near Chillingham Castle has played host to numerous dilettantes and eccentrics over the years...but none quite like tonight. On this historic evening, the occultists Graves, Corely, and Clark have summoned up something...horrible...in the manor tower. An ancient evil has escaped! Now cooks and constables, occultists and heiresses, servants and sorcerers must band together to stop it before it leaves the manor grounds and consumes the planet.
Will our heroes succeed, or will they succumb to gibbering terror and soul-rending madness? Honestly, you're hoping for the latter. In this game, you don't play the hero. You play the elder thing they've called up.
(This game was made in ~16 hours for DazaKiwi's "Narrative Escape" themed Stay-at-Home Jam)

fun and fast paced, Mon 5th Apr 2021

Not sure if I was supposed to recognize any of the names or if it was just fantasy gibberish (one of them looked like Jehovah?) but it was all very impressive.
The first thing I did was turn into a writhing many teethed tentacle beast. The second thing I did was summon invisible demons that tore apart a foolish warlock that dared order me around.
So right away it seems like a fun game . It took me awhile to figure out how to get out of the summoning circle, and then I found a kitchen and was looking at things while getting all these notifications about what the people were in the house were doing, and sometimes objects were being destroyed or picked up. It's a little confusing because I thought they were in the room with me at first, but everyone who saw me just became terrified and ran away and several people keep escaping. Finally I realize i must be figuring these things out with my eldritch senses, but by then cultists are trying to banish me and an Inspector has figured out how to destroy me which all seems like bad news. All I'm doing is hanging out in the kitchen peacefully trying to eat a biscuit so these jerks are really over reacting. Invisible demons have torn a few people apart but they don't know that's my fault.
Then my phylactory was destroyed, I think by the Inspector and I died. F Broccoli the Mighty forgotten son of Ryleh.
There are a lot of items. I'm not sure if they do anything or if they're supposed to distract me while the mortals mount their defenses. I will try again to win later and maybe do a second review.
