* AllThereInTheManual: You will have a much easier time understanding the plot, if you've read Creator/HPLovecraft's ''Literature/TheShadowOverInnsmouth'' and ''"The Shadow Out of Time."'' Then again, the sense of waking horror and discovery is far stronger for those who are less Lovecraft savvy. It works well on both levels.

Walters arrives, but a shootout occurs anyway. Taking cover, Walters accidentally locks himself inside the manor. What he finds inside is [[GoMadFromTheRevelation quite disturbing.]] Skip ahead a few years, and Walters has lost his memory of what exactly happened inside, and the events afterwards. It turns out that whatever happened inside the manor gave him a SplitPersonality, and his new identity had taken over his body for half a decade, resulting in his incarceration in an Arkham sanatorium. Though he is eventually declared sane and released, Walters is obviously no longer fit to be in the police force, and is now trying to make a living as a private investigator, actually investigating what he did himself during his period of amnesia between cases for other clients.

Sadly the game's engine has not aged well. There are a lot of compatibility issues which were only compounded by the studio going bankrupt shortly after release meaning there's no bug fix patches. Still ''Dark Corners of the Earth'' is considered by some critics to be an excellent, if not ''the best'', SurvivalHorror video game at the time of release.

* InterfaceScrew: Madness will blur your vision, slow down your perception of time, make you hear things, make you deaf, make the screen go all wavy... the SanitySlippage effects alone do more to make the game scary than all the CthulhuMythos beasties put together.

* {{Badass}}: Jack acts more like the VideoGame/{{Doom}} marine than a private investigator. He even gets a {{BFG}} near the end.
