is more than Minecraft
and monsters – it's a first-person action roguelike and immersive sim, with non-linear, randomly generated levels, permadeath and strange Lovecraftian beasts, due out on October 21 for PC. Eldritch
comes from Minor Key Games, founded by David and J. Kyle Pittman, twins who have combined experience developing BioShock 2, Borderlands, Borderlands 2
and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

is available for pre-order
now for $15, which includes access to the beta at the end of September and a Steam key if the game makes it through Greenlight
