MYTHOS: THE BEGINNING is a survival horror/adventure role playing game based on the pulp-horror and monster movies of the 1930s. Set in London in 1934, Mythos tasks you with creating your own paranormal investigator from scratch and guiding them through a frightening exploration of the infamous Harborough Asylum. Three young university students have vanished while attempting to conduct a scientific survey of this dreaded place, and it's up to you to find them! Throughout the night you'll discover that Harborough Asylum's reputation is more than an urban legend, and you'll have to fight for your life against otherworldly Lovecraftian foes.

Harborough Asylum is an abandoned mental hospital located on the outskirts of London. It was established in 1882 and soon built up a reputation as London's harshest institution thanks to its brutal and controversial treatments. After a string of mysterious patient deaths, said to number more than 40 victims, it was finally closed down during World War I and has been disused ever since. Despite this turn of events, Harborough Asylum remained one of England's most infamous sites, soon becoming the subject of an alarming number of local ghost stories. Now Harborough Asylum is a place where only the most bravest (or foolish) men would dare to tread.

You play as a renowned paranormal investigator, best known for solving a famous missing persons case several years ago. Tonight, Professor Harrison Blacktail, a mysterious academic somehow connected to the asylum's past, has turned up in your hotel room at the Imperial Arms. He has commissioned you for the most dangerous case of your career: search for three missing students inside Harborough Asylum, and discover whether the terrifying legends are true.

Mythos: The Beginning - Director's Cut reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
I recognize that I am not much of "errepegés" to the Japanese roll. The Reality, everything Japanese me the very way, so what made me start playing a game of this style is the Compadre Cthulhu (Chulu from now on). I Started to play knowing that the best game of this style that exists in the whole universe is the "Soleil" of Megadrive, but as it was Chulu, I gave it a chance. What I found is typical:-A perspective capable of leticiasabaterizarnos all. -Absurd Dialogues that in the end went to all milk to click. -All very dark, because It goes from Chulu. -Points of life, PX, level up and all that freaking out the Japanese to the point of taking them out of a coma. -A curve of difficulty totally absurd and out of control. To explain a bit the whole, we will say that we handle a researcher who goes in search of some missing dudes, and ends up finding monstrous beings worthy of the halls of Telecinco. As we give them cinnamon in Rama, we win PX that we can use to increase the strength, attack speed, intelligence and all that stuff. We can Also use them to learn special attacks or abilities that allow us to skip some puzzles and such. It's not bad Up here, is it? Let's Keep pimping! As we walk through a place so fucked, we meet people who decide to join us in the adventure, so now the PX will have to distribute them also with them. Along the way we will find medical kits, used condoms, poisons for enemies, half-smoked cigarette butts, restorative tonics and Grocery bags. When we're in a fight, we can use the objects. For example, if you leave two replacers of the Lidl and you throw the bag of Mercadona, implodes R'lyeh and detune all channels of DTT. Chaos. At first, the game is easy, because the monsters do not cost much to kill and the puzzles are medium-easy. A comfortable and enjoyable game. But aaahhh, my friend... From a certain moment, the enemies are so strong that the game becomes impossible. It doesn't matter how you've tuned the characters, that there's nothing to do. In the end, it is normal to go into cholera and send to the put.... Ísima... The P... Game and the mother who bore him. Didn't you pass it on then? What's going on? It'S absolutely unplayable from a certain moment. So, you don't know the story? It's about chulescas things. Missing, rituals, monsters, rare cults and all that. The usual. Can I save the game at any time? No, only in the rooms where there is a green candle, or where you want to spend an object that you can find by the way, and that my last lobotomy has made me forget what it is. Would you Recommend the game to a group? Those who like RPGs, no, because it is a fairly limited game and with nothing to offer. To Those who likes the roll of Chulu, nor, because there are lots of games with this theme and better than this. And Those who like both, tell them I'm sorry to be this crap game that best fits your tastes videojueguiles.
