This Chrome plugin turns the news into a Lovecraftian nightmare

Which is kind of already is, except now our world leaders are revealed for their true selves – an obscene committee of cosmic horrors, whose scheming malevolence is exceeded only by its contemptuous indifference to human misery.

Launched as a promo for the upcoming detective game The Sinking City, “We are all living in a Lovecraft story” is a Chrome extension that substitutes the names of presidents, politicians, and other wicked things with corresponding deities and concepts from the Cthulhu mythos. And you know what, everything makes so much more sense when you realise that Trump is actually Azathoth, the “Blind Idiot God”.

“Turn your online source of helplessness, disappointment, and sadness into a horror Lovecraft story,” the blurb explains. “See just how ridiculous the world actually is.”
