Lamentum serves up a terrifying world of Lovecraftian horrors

Lamentum, from developer Obscure Games, is an upcoming horror game that takes you on a terrifying trip through mid-19th century New England.

This comes about thanks to a big crossover event with the hugely popular Cartoon Network series. The brief trailer gives us a quick glimpse of each fighter’s moves and combat styles. They join an already impressive roster of recognisable characters from several earlier crossovers, including Hellboy and Rayman. As part of the update, we’ll also be getting a new team-based mode called Buddy and a new arena called Tree Fort. The free-to-play brawler obviously draws a whole…
