Our tips are designed to introduce you to the game and get a grasp of the rules governing the gameworld. Thanks to this, you'll lose less time reloading the game and respawning at checkpoints.
- You can hear a disturbing noise and the screen starts pulsing? Run! An approaching enemy is preceded by a sudden and eerie sound and a pulsating screen. If an enemy appears, it is best to run, because getting heat results in the death of your character and being sent back to the last checkpoint.
- Remember about sneaking. Sneaking significantly decreases the chance of being detected by enemies. Remember to use the environment to your advantage; if an enemy is getting too close try to hide behind a pillar of a piece of furniture.
- Using the mask for extensive periods of time leads to the game over screen. At some point during the game (described in part 4 of our walkthrough) you will find a mask which enables you to walk between dimensions. Thanks to it you will be able to see Bridges and passages, but you have to keep in mind that extended use can drive Jonathan insane, in this case you will respawn at the last checkpoint. Put on the mask, pass the bridge or take a passage, and then remember to take it off.
- Do not look at items when cultists are nearby. Having acquired a disguise (described in the second part of our walkthrough) you can move around the Yelvertons' mansion freely, but inspecting items when cultists are nearby leads to detection, which in turn results in a game over screen and a respawn at the last checkpoint.
Our detailed walkthrough will help you complete the dark history of Jonathan and Amanda. You will learn how to solve puzzles or how to avoid enemies. Thanks to this guide you will easily move through the game-world. You will learn how to deal with the dangers present at the Yelvertons' mansion and how to safely navigate the strange dimension crawling with mutants.

Lust for Darkness is an adventure game with a psychological horror setting. The game has been developed by the independent Movie Games studio and is now available on PC. In order to fund the production of the game, developers completed a Kickstarter campaign.
The story starts when the main protagonist – Jonathan Moon – receives a letter from his wife, who – under unknown circumstances – has gone missing over a year before. After following the information he received during the phone call, he gets to the grim Victorian mansion belonging to the Yelvertones, where a secret occult ceremony is taking place.
As it turns out, the main protagonist gets mixed up in a much deeper plot, in which dark forces out of this world are involved – the mansion is connected with an alternate dimension called Lusst'ghaa inhabited by degenerated beings – hundreds of years ago, these creatures have modified their bodies so that they could experience an everlasting ecstasy.
In the PC release of Lust for Darkness, a player observes the action from the first-person perspective (FPP). The gameplay revolves around the aspect of exploration – during the game, one traverses dark rooms within the mansion as well as the locations in the Lusst'ghaa dimension, which can be entered through the encountered portals. As the main protagonist is unable to fight and the aforementioned dimension is inhabited by the mutated beings, in case of a confrontation, a player is left with no other choice than to run for his life. It is much more reasonable to hide from the danger and sneak past the adversaries.
Also important in the game is the aspect of solving the puzzles by finding particular items – this way, a player can progress through the story as well as learn some useful information about the in-game world.
Lust for Darkness features high-quality 3D visuals inspired by the occult themes and erotic paintings by Zdzislaw Beksinski. During the game, players are accompanied by the dedicated soundtrack written by Draco Nared – his music is also featured in games such as Agony and Phantaruk.
