The Lovecraftian horrors are starting to flow back into our realm again with the showing of Source Of Madness that we have coming here now. This would be the next title to come out of Carry Castle and Thunderful for the PC and Switch. It is slated for a release this year for those looking to get a new side-scrolling title in the mix of it all. Source Of Madness is also going to be another title out there that is looking to scratch that itch of another Roguelite too. So many itches to be scratched for those that enjoy all of these kinds of titles out there in the sea of the bigger FPS and Action titles that are definitely flowing out there right now. Even if the Lovecraft bit seems to be a bit overplayed by many developers out there recently.
You can get a bit of a look at Source Of Madness in motion just a bit lower down, but it looks like it will be like a normal side-scroller but this one will be built with some AI machine learning along the way. All to make the millions of monsters that are teased here for Source Of Madness feels like they are more horrifying than expected with us not being able to predict anything along the way. All to head up the Tower Of Madness and uncover all of the secrets that the cosmos might be hiding out there. That or just drive us mad with how many times we have to start over from it all and keep trying to make it through a game here. This is all a tease, so you can have a look and then get ready to see just how this will be shaped over time until it releases.
