Witchmarsh Is A Lovecraftian Detective Thriller

Just added to Kickstarter, Witchmarsh is a co-op RPG featuring detectives exploring the supernatural in 1920's Massachusetts:

It's the Roaring Twenties! Join an unlikely team of detectives as they charge headlong into the darkest corners of rural America. Their mission: find and return the missing 'Witchmarsh Twelve' who vanished under mysterious circumstances.

A handsome reward is in store should they succeed, but with the supernatural lurking around every corner, will any of them live long enough to collect it?
