* GoMadFromTheRevelation: A gameplay mechanic which takes two main forms: the SanityMeter, damaged by environment and the appearance of monsters which should not be, as well as functioning as your ManaMeter for casting spells; and Angst, primarily increased by the horrible actions you must undertake to survive, such as watching harm come to others or causing it yourself and all kinds of combat -- a kind of anti-ExperiencePoints. If your Sanity drops low enough, near or below the halfway mark over an extended period of time, your character will go mad, randomly receiving one of the game's HollywoodPersonalityDisorders, also permanent: [[FunnySchizophrenia Schizophrenia]], Paranoia, Mania, Psychopathy. Each comes with its own quirks -- penalties but also unique bonuses, representing, like your character's [[UnconventionalAlignment chosen belief system]], a unique way of coping with the world.

Like the real-life Greene, she was a horror author in her own right and worked in New York as a milliner. In-game, instead of amicably separating after a few years, this version of Greene has become an OccultDetective, searching for her missing husband Carter.

* CrapsackWorld: For the inhabitants of Arkham, life is terrible enough with them being dragged into the nightmare-inducing realm. [[TheMafia The Mob]] and The {{Cult}} are the de facto rulers of the city, with the former ruling the city with iron fist, controlling all trade of food, weapons, and other necessities of the ScavengerWorld Arkham has become, and the latter sacrificing citizens at will, murdering anyone who dares oppose their crazed worship of Cthulhu, and terrorizing the rest. Food is running out, as anything edible apart from dwindling supplies of canned products is non-existent in the new realm. As a result, the surviving populace of Arkham is miserable with many either [[DrivenToSuicide killing themselves]], [[DescentIntoAddiction hooked on narcotics and booze]], or [[DrivenToMadness driven insane]] by such an environment.

* ArbitraryHeadcountLimit: The player character can have a maximum of two "proper" companions and one hired fighter who goes away if you run out of cigs to retain his services.



* BayonetYa: The Nameless Soldier's melee attack has him spear enemies with his bayonet.



* BayonetYa: The Nameless Soldier's melee attack has him spear enemies with his bayonet.



* BlackoutBasement: There are a few areas and world map events that are so dark, you need to carry a lit oil lantern in order to navigate them.



* CriticalHit: Played with. While there are certainly critical successes, which include critical hits, there are also critical failures, much like the original ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' games.



* DialogueTree: Here, the preset conversation options are regularly complemented not just by the skill check responses, but also by the options stemming from your character's worldview (picking which enhances roleplaying and restores sanity unless you play as a Nihilist). Moreover, playing at low sanity regularly distorts some of the available responses into barely coherent, and frequently aggressive, ramblings.
* DropTheHammer: A Sledgehammer is one of the available melee weapons, and it is definitely powerful, though expensive.



* ItemCrafting: Investing points in the Science and Occult skills allows the player to craft either more conventionally advanced weapons and equipment, or strange relics you barely understand yourself, respectively.



* NiceHat: Sonia was a milliner in New York in her past life, and wears a rather elaborate wide-brimmed hat with a large feathery plume. [[ColorMotif Like the rest of her outfit, the hat is green]]. She waves it in the air to distract enemies before [[TheGunslinger firing her Trick Shot]].

* NonStandardGameOver: One can occur before you finish your first quest. [[spoiler: The Antiques Merchant will be so fascinated by your artifact, that he'll offer you more and more cigs for it; while your character automatically rejects the first two offers, the third one is so large that you get the choice to accept it. Doing so, however, ends the game as soon as you walk out of the antiques store, since you now have no more means of progressing the story.]]
* OptionalSexualEncounter: The desperate state of Arkham has predictably led to the appearance of several prostitutes, and you can pay for their services as well. Gameplay-wise, it restores your sanity without the downsides of addiction that are associated with the alternatives like booze or drugs.
* OptionalStealth: Practically all of the combat encounters can be sneaked past if you are good enough, and investing points into a corresponding skill will decrease the enemies' detection range as well.
* PracticalCurrency: Since the Black Day rendered all normal currency worthless (to the point the game treats stacks of dollars in the Bank as useless Junk, and you are outright told you are better off using them as toilet paper), everyone started using cigarettes as currency instead.



* SanitySlippage: You begin with a set amount of sanity that is mainly determined by your intelligence stat. Once it sufficiently declines, the player character begins to experience plenty of hallucinations (see FunnySchizophrenia above), and your dialogue options change. That's not even to mention the Angst "anti-experience".



* SurvivalSandbox: Downplayed as the game is heavily story-driven, but it does have aspects of this, with limited resources, ItemCrafting, [[WizardNeedsFoodBadly a ration and rest system]], and permanent afflictions like Angst "perks" and insanity.
