Lust from Beyond: M Edition is a first-person Lovecraftian survival horror, with beautiful visuals inspired by Giger and Beksinski. The game offers a dark, provocative story told within a gameplay varying between exploration, combat, sneaking, puzzle solving, and interaction with NPCs.
You are Victor Holloway, an antiquarian tormented by visions of a sinister land, where there's no difference between pain and pleasure. To unravel the true meaning of your dreams, you join the esoteric Cult of Ecstasy.
What Is the M Edition?
The base version of the game was rated Adult Only due to its explicit content. Despite its limited visibility, the game recouped its production cost within 72 hours and became a cult hit.
The M Edition is the same game tastefully tailored for a wider audience. M stands for the new Mature rating, but also for the many motifs of the Lust universe. The omnipresent Mystery, the iconic Masks, and overwhelming Madness.
The M Edition contains the following changes from the Adult Only edition:
Some models have been changed to tastefully cover nudity while staying faithful to the themes and setting.
Some scenes have been rearranged to keep their meaning but reduce the explicit factor.
Some animations and scene framing have been changed to meet the Mature rating requirements.
