We’re not short of Lovecraftian tales on Xbox, but decades on from their glory years, there aren’t many text-based adventures present. That changes today as The Innsmouth Case begins to unfold on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S with full Xbox Play Anywhere support too.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, The Innsmouth Case combines horror, comedy and good old text adventuring as one, taking players off on a journey that promises to be harrowing, humorous and utterly fantastical.
The Innsmouth Case previously released on Nintendo Switch, PC and mobile, but now makes a move to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S to deliver an adventure in which every single decision you make counts – whether that be for the good of the tale and the opportunity for you to solve the case, or as you fail miserably.
It tells the tale of the disappearance of one Tabitha Marsh from the town of Innsmouth. It’s here where you and your detective skills come to the fore, becoming one with the world around you, working your way through the interactive book styled gameplay and preparing yourself to take in the 27 eventual – and possible – endings.

This mysterious assignment takes you to the remote fishing village of Innsmouth, where nothing is what it seems… Save the girl, solve the case, survive Innsmouth! The Innsmouth Case is a detective adventure in the style of an interactive book inspired by the fantastical works of horror legend H.P. Lovecraft. The unique mixture of horror and humor makes The Innsmouth Case the first scary-comedy-text-adventure of its kind.
