This subject is written on a topic in the real world and reflects factual information. This subject contains information from the Expanded Cthulhu Mythos, and not based on H.P. Lovecraft's works directly. Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is a video game released in 2005 for the Xbox and 2006 for PC platforms, developed by Headfirst Productions and published by Bethesda Softworks. The game is based on the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game by Chaosium and loosely follows the plot of H. P. Lovecraft's novella The Shadow Over Innsmouth.


The main character is Jack Walters, a private investigator suffering from amnesia following a mysterious case in 1915. The majority of the plot takes place seven years later in the seaside town of Innsmouth, Massachusetts. Jack travels to Innsmouth to solve a missing person case, encounters the Esoteric Order of Dagon and their idols of worship and, as the game reaches its conclusion, eventually learns the truth about himself and some of the things that live in the dark corners of the earth.
