Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is a 2005 first-person survival horror video game developed by Headfirst Productions and published by Bethesda Softworks, in conjunction with 2K Games, for the PC and Xbox systems. The Xbox version is officially compatible with the Xbox 360 in certain regions. The PC version was published in 2006.

The game is based on the works of H. P. Lovecraft, author of The Call of Cthulhu and progenitor of the Cthulhu Mythos. It is a re-imagining of Lovecraft's novella The Shadow Over Innsmouth, also containing elements from the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game campaign Escape from Innsmouth. Although the story diverges in several places and features a different protagonist, several levels in the game mirror passages from the The Shadow Over Innsmouth. A major sub-plot of the game is also inspired by Lovecraft's novella The Shadow Out of Time. More Info »

Althrough mostly well received by critics, the game was a commercial failure. At least two (and possibly three) additional Cthulhu Mythos games were planned by Headfirst Productions, including its direct sequel, Call of Cthulhu: Destiny's End. Due to the very long development cycle of Dark Corners of the Earth, which was originally announced to be released in 2001, these titles were being developed alongside it. They got canceled when the company failed to find a new publisher for them in 2006, resulting in the bankruptcy and liquidation of Headfirst.

Plot
On September 6, 1915, Detective Jack Walters is summoned to a decrepit manor house in Boston, Massachusetts. The manor is inhabited by a small bizarre cult called the Fellowship of the Yith, led by one Victor Holt, who has asked specifically for Walters to come and talk to him...
