mEldritch: a moddable build of the Eldritch engine

What is it?

This is a build of the Eldritch source code released by David Pittman that has been modified to support modding more easily. Thanks, David, for releasing the source code to your game, and for being very helpful with this project!

This version of Eldritch has been tested with the humble version of Eldritch on Windows 7, Linux (XUbuntu 16.04 and 17.10) and MacOSX Yosemite. It has also been tested with the windows steam version of Eldritch on Windows 7, Linux and Mac. Note that since release 256, only 64-bit builds are provided. 32-bit builds are no longer suported.

You need the original game to use this, which you can get from http://eldritchgame.com/

Important note: mEldritch will not work with Build 400+ of Eldritch (a.k.a. Eldritch Reanimated), you will need to use the legacy version!

Also, this is no longer supported. Find the source for the most recent develoment version below.

Major changes to the original Eldritch source are:


Someone actually did something with this! Meaning, there is a mod. You can find it here.




The current build is 256, released on Apr 01, 2018.

Old Releases

Final Release

This is not strictly speaking a full release, it is the source code of the latest development version, before this project was canned. This has only been built and tested on linux (MiNT 20.04), but should build on Windows and Mac also, with minimal modifications. If you're interested in checking out the endless Eldritch mod, that is included here, or the latest aditions to the lua integration or just want to poke around, you can get the last source code here:



Like David's original Eldritch sources, this is available unter the zlib license. The license itself is included in the source archive.


I have begun to make a mod based on the movie "The Whisperer in the Darkness".  I made some custom models, textures, a few rooms, some config files, but I lack the time to do any more work on it. If anyone wants do complete it, or study it, they're more than welcome to. You can download the stuff here. It is released under a CC BY 4.0 license.
