Niche Spotlight – Lust for Darkness: Lovecraftian Eroticism

This is Niche Spotlight. In this column, we regularly introduce new games to our fans, so please leave feedback and let us know if there’s a game you want us to cover!

Today’s Spotlight is a Lovecraftian erotic horror game called Lust for Darkness by Movie Games Lunarium and PlayWay.

You play as Jonathan Moor, a man who has just received a cryptic letter from his wife over a year after she disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The letter’s contents lead you to a secluded Victorian manor, where a cult of wealthy elites engage in depraved rituals to fuel their unnatural debauchery.

The game will have you jump between reality and Lusst’ghaa, an alien dimension populated by demonic entities, on your mission to figure out what happened to your wife. You can find a trailer above.

Lust for Darkness is available on Windows PC via Steam and the Humble Store for $14.99. It’s currently 25% off on Steam as part of a Polish Independence Day sale.

Here’s a rundown of the game:

Jonathan Moon receives a letter from his wife who has gone missing a year before. Following information from the message he heads for a secluded mansion where an eldritch, occult ceremony takes place.

Gates to another world – the profane, perverse land of Lusst’ghaa are opened.

Move in both a Victorian mansion and Lusst’ghaa – an alien dimension filled with otherworldly creatures. Lusst’ghaa used to be similar to our earth until the local beings decided to undergo total degeneration at their own wish. Through experiments they transformed their bodies so that they could never cease to experience carnal delights. Hundreds of years have passed since that metamorphosis and Lusst’ghaa is now a land overgrown with alien vegetation and full of monstrosities squirming in a never ending ecstasy.

Key Features:

  • Erotic and occult themes
  • World design inspired with works of Lovecraft, Giger & Zdzisław Beksiński
