Inspired by H.P Lovecraft, Eresys is a horror co-op game for up to four players.

Players must work together to overcome terrifying creatures and use occult knowledge to survive. Explore a mysterious island, uncover hidden secrets, and face unexpected challenges. A unique AI and a variety of enemies will keep players on their toes. Can you and your team survive the horrors of the Lovecraftian universe?

A party of 4 players face together the fears of the Lovecraftian Universe. Featuring smart AI mechanics with horrifying entities that will make you regret stepping into the forest.

Only by working together and using the order of the occult will you be able to stand a chance.

Discover hidden secrets and trigger Unexpected Events - You and your teammates will have the chance to trigger a well-hidden mystery among the island and witness something truly mouth drooping.

 Eresys will be available through Steam Early Access on April 20, 2023, and will remain so for 6-8 months.

“Our early access version is currently playable in both single-player and multiplayer, with support for up to 4 players. Players will find themselves on a huge island to explore, with at least 4 different types of enemies lurking in the shadows. There are also numerous caves and at least 14 houses to explore, each with their own secrets waiting to be uncovered. The basic mechanics of the game are already solid, providing players with an immersive and thrilling experience. So far, we've included at least 2 different endings to the game, one of which is considered a secret ending, adding an extra layer of depth and re-playability to the game.”

“Our early access version is just the beginning of our vision for the ultimate Lovecraftian horror online co-op game. In the full version, players can look forward to:

  • More enemies: We plan to introduce more terrifying creatures from the depths of the unknown to test players' courage and survival skills.
  • More unlocked areas: Players will be able to explore new areas and uncover the secrets hidden within our dark, twisted world.
  • More mechanics: We'll be adding new gameplay mechanics to deepen the horror experience and keep players on their toes.

Overall, we plan to make the full version of the game more complex, challenging, and rewarding than the early access version. We're committed to working closely with our community to make sure that we deliver the best possible game, and we can't wait to see what horrors await players in the final version.”
