Mansions of Madness: Mother's Embrace is a PC-based horror adventure game. The production was developed by Luckyhammers, a Canadian studio and is an adaptation of the Mansions of Madness series of board games released by Fantasy Flight Games.
The plot of the game was inspired by the work of Howard Phillips Lovecraft. The action takes place in 1926, in a sleepy American town, whose peace and quiet was destroyed by a series of murders and disappearances. Worse still, there are witnesses claiming that strange monsters were seen in the area. A team of researchers specializing in occult issues is sent with the mission of clarifying the case. Their investigation focuses on one residence, which seems to be at the centre of recent events.
The game is based on a series of board games, but draws mainly from them the atmosphere and elements of the plot, offering a completely different mechanics. While the table prototypes bet on cooperative, strategic gameplay, so spent on the PC platform Mansions of Madness: Mother's Embrace is a one-player adventure.
The four heroes explore a residence full of monsters and traps. While playing, we do location searches and solve puzzles. The player has the ability to split the group and freely switch between characters. This is useful as each researcher has unique abilities and features, and their proper use is often the key to defeating puzzles.
Mansions of Madness: Mother's Embrace offers a full three-dimensional, slightly stylized graphics that fits well with the character of history.
