While we were having some well earned rest and respite during December, Red Wasp Designs boldly announced a release date for “Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land”, their strategy RPG based around the works of cult horror writer H.P.Lovecraft. The game is set in the midst of the First World War and pits a team of soldiers and investigators against an insidious cult intent on using the slaughter of the Great War to open the doors to an invasion of eldritch horrors.
First announced in May this year and recently reported on here at miskatonic.co.uk in November, the game is set to launch initially on iPhone and iPod (both SD and HD versions), Red Wasp Design then later plan other platform releases such as iPad, Android with further plans for PC and consoles. The game has us at miskatonic.co.uk highly interested as for once this is a game designed and built by real RPG enthusiasts, what is more it has been developed in close co-operation with Chaosium.
There are now lots of new High Definition images to be found at the Red Wasp site to give you a flavour of the game – try here. As previously noted we are really looking forward to the game and to bringing a full review in due course. I’m still not a big fan of playing games on my phone, so lets hope that the iPad version is not far behind.
Anyway, we wait with bated breath…
