Gamers investigate a grisly murder and the subsequent disappearance of a young boy in the Lovecraftian adventure The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Players take on the role of Paul Prospero, a detective with the unusual ability to communicate with the dead, as he explores Red Creek Valley and learns of more murders and a mysterious dark force permeating the town. The game features no combat and very little puzzle solving, choosing instead to focus on atmosphere and character development as players speak to the deceased and conduct the investigation at their own pace.
