Destroyed by a government raid in 1928, the mysterious town of Innsmouth was left to fester in ruins for nearly 80 years. The two central characters, Emily and Jacob, return to search for the truth as they unveil the horrors of the town's past. Destiny's End will break new ground in the field of survival horror by featuring innovative co-operative gameplay whereby two players can each assume the role of one of the main protagonists at any time in the game and work together to overcome their deepest fears. Players will have to use both characters to defeat their enemies thanks to fantastic co-operative fighting combos. Featuring a blend of fierce action, combat and exploration, gamers will journey into a world of malevolence and horror with "Call of Cthulhu: Destiny's End."
Destiny's End was originally signed for release in March 2005, but the publisher, Hip Interactive, for the project fell on financial troubles and declared bankruptcy in December 2005. Headfirst Productions itself went into liquidation as of March 2006, and the game is now thought to be vaporware. In 2011, UGO.com included it on their list of 25 canceled games that "could have been some of the greatest games of all time."
