Heavily Based In The Mythos Of HP Lovecraft, Euclidean Will Be Creeping It’s Way Onto Steam This Month

The Alpha Wave team has released a new trailer for Euclidean ahead of the game’s September 25th launch on Steam. It does a good job of capturing the tension and atmosphere of this haunting game. It’s not horror in the traditional sense… but something is certainly amiss.

Behind our comfortable, familiar dimensions, beyond the timeless depths of space, there is a Place that mankind was not meant to know. A Place hostile to all life. We do not belong there. We cannot survive there. At least, not for long… Euclidean; a game of geometric horror; a slow descent into the dark, into madness, futility, and despair, where things greater than you watch and wait and dream. Struggle for every second of life you have left…

Even knowing you’re better off dead.
