Set in H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, Eldritch Horror is a co-op, story driven game of characters from the 20's (a psychic, a fisherman, a politician, an actress, the list goes on...) traveling around the globe trying to stop ancient God-like beings, or Great Old Ones, from breaking through into our world and destroying it in all manner of hideous ways.
Most of us have memories of games which we just couldn't stop playing. A memorable example for me is the push to get to the end of Shenmue II at 1:30am the night before an A level English exam. It was clear the end of the game was approaching. All the time and effort I had invested in Ryo's journey pushed me to see it through to the end, now
, regardless of any real life responsibilities. The game had motivated me to keep going.
