We present to your attention a choose-your-own-adventure visual novel computer game called "The Gift of Cthulhu" set in the dark and chilling world of H.P. Lovecraft. The game features our original writing, original horror music and loads of vintage public domain black and white period photography to bring in an authentic 1920s feel. The game features multiple choices, multiple endings, sandbox and RPG elements. Our heroine, an ambitious and highly competent woman, arrives in Arkham to try and break into a medical career – after all, while the best hospitals and medical schools may turn their nose up at a top graduate merely because of her sex, a provincial town might want for good hands enough to be willing to put prejudice aside. Armed with the recommendations of her professor of pathological anatomy, our heroine sets out to prove herself in a town that seems full of friendly strangers. Yet shades arise from her troubled past as she descends deeper into the terrible reality of Arkham.
