Plot

Chronicle of Innsmouth: Mountains of Madness was inspired by the short story The Shadow over Innsmouth and the novel At the Mountains of Madness. The action of the game takes place ten years before the events presented in the first installment of the series, in the 1930s. The main character is a private detective Lone Carter, who, after waking up on the beach near the Innsmouth, struggles with terrifying visions and nightmares. After returning to his hometown Arkham, the protagonist finds another mystery to solve. Trying to explain the disappearance and the ritual murder, Carter gets entangled in a plot that will put his sanity to the test.

Apart from that the game allows us to play as Abdul Alhazred (author of Necronomicon - a book containing secret and forbidden knowledge and information about Great Old Ones), in whose shoes we find ourselves in ancient Yemen. The third protagonist is H.P. Lovecraft himself, investigating the secrets of his family.
