A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Welcome to Uncle Lovecraft’s Fun Time Murder Hole - a 3D, real-time isometric game best described as playing mini-golf with humans while they're fleeing to save their lives. Play as a cultist intent upon sacrificing the denizens of Haven to satisfy their Dark Lord’s insatiable hunger.

Become blessed with dark magics the more you sacrifice. Combine your newfound powers with the environment to force unwilling souls into an abyssal pit. Gather villagers as they attempt to run from the ensuing chaos, but be wary of the hellfire that rains from the sky. Put out the flames before you lose any sacrifices to them. The Dark Lord does not feast upon the dead.

You must be quick and efficient from the moment of your first sacrifice, as the rift opened will consume all of Haven and you along with it if the cravings of the Dark Lord remain unappeased long enough.
