Call of Cthulu: Wasted Land Hits Steam today!
Award Tally So Far... 2 Wins, 2 Nominations and Several Picks
Release date: 6th March 2014
The first casualty of war is not truth, but sanity.

Based on the award winning Call of Cthulhu RPG, this turn-based strategy/role-playing game is set in the midst of World War One and pits a team of investigators and soldiers against an ancient evil. This enemy, older than humanity itself, is using the carnage of the great war to build a reanimated army deep beneath the bloody battlefields of Europe.

"Many men have related hideous things... which happened on the battlefields of the Great War. Some of these things have made me faint, others have convulsed me with devastating nausea, while still others have made me tremble and look behind me in the dark..." H.P.Lovecraft 'Herbert West: Reanimator'

Call of Cthulhu was originally the title of a novella by cult American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) which has, since it was published in 1928, captured the imagination of generation after generation of fans. Lovecraft’s works also inspired an award winning role-playing game, Call of Cthulhu. It is this classic pen'n'paper RPG combined with inspiration from Lovecraft's fiction including the classic WW1 set 'Herbert West: Reanimator' that together forms the basis for ‘Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land’. From this basis we've then layered in tactical gameplay, multiple characters, skills, authentic period weapons and equipment, sanity system and other features such as magic, poison gas and artillery.

There's a bug on this page: steam banner at the top of this page says it's only greenlight (not released), so I noticed it's out only now

This is an excellent little game. Though it doesn't have many levels (yet?), I find myself playing it constantly, and restarting levels to try different strategies/tactics/character configurations. The movement seems excellent (though occasionally I find it a little difficult to select a movement square - and selecting another character instead). The setting and storyline seems appropriate for a Lovecraftian-based game. Well, that's my input. I'll conclude by saying this definitely deserves to be given the 'greenlight.' If (when) it's available, I'd highly recommend it.
