Abandonware DOS title

Horror games featuring a lovecraftian theme

H. P. Lovecraft was perhaps the most influential writer of horror novels. Its peculiar taste for cosmic horrors, ancient gods and similar amenities is recognizable to every horror fan. Video game designers in the last decades took inspiration from Lovecraft to create some of the best horror games ever published for DOS and Windows.
