Lovecraftian Action Game “Elden: Path of the Forgotten” Announced

Publisher Another Indie has announced that they recently picked up Elden: Path of the Forgotten by Onerat Games.

Elden: Path of the Forgotten is a top-down action-adventure game set in a medieval fantasy world overrun with Lovecraftian horrors. The game focuses on nonlinear storytelling, where players will have to unravel the plot through environmental cues and deciphering messages in another language. You can check out the announcement trailer above.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

Elden is a medieval eldritch fantasy game, focusing on storytelling through non-traditional indirect methods — like reading a book in a language you don’t understand, but with pictures. Visually inspired by some of greatest classic 16 and 8 bit games. Elden is a stunning encapsulating dark world waiting to be explored.

When the world forgets, the past is primed to repeat. As Elden struggles entering adulthood, the world is becoming a darker place. Forgotten evils are returning and only you are positioned to act.

Elden is the first major commercial release by Onerat Games. It’s a tribute to the adventures we grew up with and loved.


  • Many diverse and challenging regions.
  • Horrifying Lovecraftian enemies and bosses.
  • Unique and brutal weapons and spells.
  • Powerful and dynamic items.

Elden: Path of the Forgotten will be releasing sometime later this year on Windows PC (via Steam), PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
