''Anchorhead'' is an award-winning work of InteractiveFiction written and programmed independently by Michael Gentry, and is heavily inspired by the CthulhuMythos. The game is set within the titular town of Anchorhead, which rests firmly within LovecraftCountry. You play the role of a nameless woman who has moved into town with her husband Michael, and quickly becomes enmeshed in the dark, disturbing goings on -- to say more would be to spoil a truly excellent plot.

** Several aspects of the town are pretty clear nods to ''TheShadowOverInnsmouth'', particularly the librarian with "fish-eyes" and the local drunk [[spoiler:who gives the protagonist key information for the price of a bottle of whiskey]].
