In the heat of summer, it’s easy to forget that winters even exist, but the horror publisher Feardemic is here to remind us of the icy cold weather with their newest Switch release - Lovecraftian mystery horror visual novel Last Threshold, which you can grab with a 10% launch discount for a limited time.

A nice, refreshing trip into the mountains to save us from the overbearing heat may sound enticing, but there is a catch… The catch is, that you step into the shoes of Wiktor Staszewski, the son of a researcher exiled to Siberia, and follow in your father’s footsteps, into mysterious ruins that until recently were buried in ice. Will you finally understand your father's obsession or let it become yours? Or perhaps you’ll perish on the way, as the tensions increase and conflict tears your expedition team apart? And even when you get there, there is also a small possibility of awakening the eldritch horrors beyond human comprehension that may reside within…
