A 1940's noir horror themed Role Playing Game for PC.

---> It Lurks! Chapter One, v1.7, is available now to download and play, for free. Click Here! <---

Meet Nate Hendricks, a Private Detective who's a bit down on his luck.

Business has been slow. Too slow. The bills are piling up, and he may have to soon close-up shop. He just needs a break. Perhaps one good well-paying case could help him turn things around.

Then one evening, he gets a call from a Doctor Offenhauser who wants to hire him. The Doc doesn't give many details over the phone, but insists it's an urgent matter that can't wait, and that he'll pay very handsomely, even just for Nate to show up to his residence that night to discuss matters personally.

"Sure, why not?", Nate thinks. Even if he decides not to take the case, he'll still get a bit of much-needed cash to help pay off a few of the bills.

Nate goes to the Doctor's secluded estate that night. But things soon take a turn for the worse. In fact, something sinister lurks within. It lurks, and it waits!

Below are some screenshots from It Lurks!

 Nate's bio page.

On a dark & stormy night, Nate arrives at Doctor Offenhauser's residence.

After knocking and waiting, no one answers. Nate goes in, he is expected after all. "Hey, fancy looking place".
Walls in the foreground will become translucent when you approach them so you can better explore the surroundings.


Elements such as lighting effects, sounds that get louder as you approach the source (such as a fire in a fireplace or a ticking clock),
fitting music for the various locations & scenes, detailed environments and a dark story all blend together
to make a suspenseful horror-themed atmosphere.

The more you explore, more of the story, and mysteries, are revealed.
What might be lurking in the shadows?

An exciting and interactive battle-system.
Quick reflexes and a strategic use of actions can help you to overcome dangerous foes.

Winning battles will gain you experience.
With enough experience you'll level-up, improve your stats and gain new valuable skills.

Chapter One of It Lurks is available to play now, for free!
