Read, listen, play and move your device, to dive into the story like you've never done before. Going much further than reading a text with illustrations; the experience has animated and interactive scenes, coupled with sound effects, careful design and an original soundtrack, all joined together to immerse yourself in the bowels of one of the H.P. Lovecraft’s most acclaimed stories in an unprecedented way.

The Colour Out of Space is considered one of the best science fiction and terror stories of all time. It was first published in the September 1927 issue of the mythical magazine “Amazing Stories”, and instantly had a great reception among fans of the genre. The Providence genius broke the established molds and presented the greatest of horrors as a simple chromatic element that lurks and threatens the protagonists of the story, something really innovative for the time when the horror stories were based on vampires, ghosts and other more conventional monsters. Perhaps for this reason, this is one of Lovecraft's own favorite stories.

Now you can enjoy it in this new interactive format, and be part of the horror that stalked the hills of Arkham during the "strange days" ... If you dare.

Absolutely terrifying


Been a Lovecraft fan for thirty years read all his stories many times over. But rereading this rendition was truly spectacular. Jumped out of skin so many times and finding myself laughing at my reaction. Thank you so much for bringing a new and truly terrifying experience to the works of Lovecraft. HPL still scares the crap out of you especially in this interactive experience..It was a Blast!!!! Thank you!



One of my favourite Lovecraft stories, and presented so well. The music was haunting, and the sound effects were perfectly timed to my reading pace. A jumpscare or two left me occasionally scared to interact with the pages. I loved this, and it’s evident that a lot of care went into the making of it. I hope that we’ll see many more Lovecraft tales!

The best yet.


Like the title says, this is the best one iclassics have produced. The soundtrack is amazing, the illustrations/animations top notch, and the story -well, I’m a lovecraft fan, so no complaints there. Please don’t take so long before ilovecraft 3. This and the iPoe series are absolutely fantastic.
