Sanctuary is being sought/ Whispered prayers a last resort.


Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is now available, DRM-free on GOG.com.
Ancient horrors constantly lurking in the corner of your eye. Mad cultists sacrificing their humanity in order to appease terrible gods. Your own sanity hanging by a thin, fleshy thread. H.P. Lovecraft's works come to life in all their soul-biting vigor as this 1920s story of survival horror unfolds. Will you dare see it to its bitter end?

NOTE: This version includes various small fixes, including: proper V-sync functionality, a fix for the triangle raindrops on AMD cards, and a custom-made fix provided by user Guzz, which allows the invisible sorcerers on the reef to appear properly, plus restores skybox rendering.

nightcraw1er.488: Just in case anyone else was interested, I have tested the DCofTE Patcher with this copy from GOG and it seems to work fine (haven't tested all functionality, but skip movies and such like works). This is a patcher whereby you can change certain things and fix things if you get stuck:

I was trying to find if someone mentioning this, that tool is invaluable as it allows you to save anywhere along with noclip to avoid getting stuck.

Too bad they pulled the game already.
I just went to buy this and couldn't find it in my wishlist. Not surprisingly, I'm having a Re-Volt flashback, as I missed that game too.

Fortunately, I played through Dark Corners on the Xbox, though that doesn't alleviate the minor sense of loss and disappointment that I, and undoubtedly others, are feeling.

I was hoping to experience the game again minus the multitude of bugs that I encountered during my first playthrough. Sadly, the part of the game that I remember most vividly is slowly pushing through an invisible wall for over 30 minutes in order to enter a moving elevator.

It is arguably one of the most buggy games I've ever played (along with Evil Twin, also from Ubisoft), so maybe it's better that I didn't push my luck a second time anyway. :)

So, this patcher wasn't included in the GOG version ? It is mandatory to play and complete the game, imo.

I highly doubt that it is mandatory. Maybe GOG just took some of the fixes included in the patcher. Anyway it was ablue who told that he was able to play through the game from start to finish using the GOG version.

It was mandatory for me with the retail version to finish the game.

I don't doubt that. Question is if it still would be mandatory in the GOG release.
Okay. This thing about games removal is getting more and more ridiculous by the day. Hadn't i been waiting for this game to appear at GOG store for so many years in a row, i would have missed it as well, by waiting to buy it later, like most people who missed it. Thankfully, 5 bucks and a much wanted by me title, made me grab it the second it appeared!

Now i fear for the Suffering series, too. Thankfully, i also bought that. Damn man, now we must grab a game the very day it appears! I am not risking losing anything else! Wow. And imagine that i also wrote a review about it. Sheet.

Its called marketing. Remove something from sale, create demand at release day, and more demand when its removed. Then release it again to great applause, and double the sales. See its already got you thinking should I/shouldn't I on suffering.
Is it still on Steamie? If sooo taht would point to what's 'different' between teh two to cause such an issue, which would seem to be teh fixes or whatevs GOGie did Different Lee. I still hope it's not taht becaaause altho permission should always! be sought Shirley it's in teh best interests of consumers 'n' tinkererers alike not to take a game down overall.

Then again this gamie looks spooky as all heck.
I'm glad I got this before it got pulled, is there any more details on why it got pulled and when we'll see it again?
The game is currently 1,24 €/$ on Steam, FWIW.
