Arkham Horror: Mother’s Embrace Revealed For PC
Originally revealed as Mansions of Madness: Mother's Embrace back in 2018, the title has been reworked over the past two years to become adapated within the Arkham Horror universe. Shortly after announcement, the development studio LuckyHammers was closed, leaving many wondering what would happen to the project.

Inspired by the award-winning board game franchise, Arkham Horror: Mother’s Embrace is an investigation game served with turn-based combat, set in the haunted worlds of H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos. Plunge into an original story written by Fantasy Flight Interactive’s official writers and explore the American Roaring Twenties.
The year is 1926: a professor of astronomy is found dead in her mansion and everything indicates that she has been the victim of a heinous murder.

Find clues, perform interrogations and progress through nine chapters as the story unfolds. Your investigation will take you to visit shadowed institutions and mysterious locales, ranging from Miskatonic University, the Arkham Asylum, and the bayous of Louisiana.

Use a large variety of melee and ranged weapons, as well as powerful items and devastating magic spells to defeat your opponents in turn-based combat; while you attempt to retain your sanity.
As you face off against Lovecraftian horrors, your investigators will descend deeper into the depths of madness, affecting their level of sanity and causing traumas that will impact the course of your investigation. Care about your sanity and make the right choices … the Ancient Ones are preparing their return.
