The sequel is now up on Newgrounds - you can check it out by selecting the 'also by this author' in the bottom left.

A brand new version of the card game The Necronomicon, with a new game mode, and full of new art drawn up by various contributors. There are now 30 ranks to beat, and the game ends when either you get to 30 before your opponent, or they beat you up to rank 30.

Bug fixes, game changes and tweaks, and a whole new game mode called Challenge Mode. Defeat the opponent in a series of scenarios where the odds are stacked against you.

Also includes some rule changes and creatures now have additional abilities.

** NEW - . - MASSIVE update to how the cards are dealt out. Basically what happens now in the fix is that you both have a deck of whatever amount of cards are unlocked, and each card will be seen once by each of you. There will be no duplicate cards appearing until your deck has been exhausted and shuffled, and so the only dups you will see are the cards you held from the previous shuffle. Makes everything much more balanced.

YEAH!

Damn it, it's about time someone did Lovecraft justice with a tribute such as this. I've played this game since it first appeared, and only now did I think to leave a comment. Plowking - good job.
Good graphics, creepy background music and drive-you-nuts challenges make this one wicked card game.
Any other games in the works?

Level 29 spawn of Cthulu!

I love this game!! First time I found it, I stayed up almost all night playing it. Then I had to look up what on earth a Mi-go was. That lead to looking up Hastor, the King in Yellow, and the Shoggoth. From there I made up a library list including Robert W. Chambers, Ambrose Bierce and of course H.P.Lovecraft.
Believe it or not, I had never read anything by Lovecraft before. I found this game on a scary games site and decided to try it.

I want to thank you for getting me interested in Lovecraft. He is indeed a marvelous writer and his type of storytelling is just the kind that deeply appeals to me. Between being a band geek and an otaku, you have completed my trifecta of hopeless nerdiness. ^_^

Pretty good

I still come back and play this from time to time. Story mode is good, the selection of cards is good and you found some nice art, but most of the 'challenges' in challenge mode are just frustrating - when you start with so few hit points you can be killed in one hit, the only challenge is whether you can be bothered to keep going back and starting again until your opponent has no damage cards in his hand!
