Today I’d like to talk about a survival horror game I played earlier this year and reviewed at Lovecraft Video Games called The Manse on Soracca.

At the time I played it, it had gotten so little attention online I felt as though I was the only one who knew about it, and while it has a few more reviews and discussions on Steam now, it’s still been overlooked.

The Manse on Soracca begins as a retro survival horror game about a private investigator searching for a missing woman in the mysterious mansion at Soracca, but once you find an eldritch artifact, it becomes much more of a unique experience. Like in my main review, I don’t want to spoil what happens, but I will say it has some fun meta elements that left me surprised the game didn’t get more attention.

It does some pretty cool and clever things with its premise, and although there are some tedious sections, it’s a really interesting game.

If you like cosmic horror and Lovecraftian themes, play The Manse on Soracca. If you like games that try something unusual, play The Manse on Soracca.

I picked this one to discuss today specifically because I want to draw more attention to it. The Manse on Soracca is a neat survival horror game, and it deserves more attention than it’s gotten so far.
