Description of The Hound of Shadow

This is a good horror IF based on H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu novels. Psychic seances, horrific encounters, and troubling nightmares abound in this game set in Victorian London.

Although the in-game graphics (which annoyingly pops up full-screen and obscuring the parser) look awful in their semi black-and-white EGA, the writing is above-average and the parser is quite robust. It won't grab you in quite the same way as Infocom's horror classic The Lurking Horror, but it will provide hours of good puzzle-solving fun amid an interesting plot.

This game is based on the Cthulhu Mythos of H.P. Lovecraft. The Hound of Shadow is a Hound of Tindalos, and even though the game is text based, it will rope you in. Once you get used to the functionality of having to input key words to perform actions, the game flows rather nicely. Think of this as a Lovecraftian "Choose-Your-Own-Adventure".
