Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is a turn-based strategy RPG inspired by the works of noted horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. The game was created by indie developer Red Wasp Design in cooperation with Chaosium, the publishers of the paper role-playing game, Call of Cthulhu. The game is set in the trenches of World War One. In ‘The Wasted Land’ the player uses their team of investigators to uncover a deadly inhuman conspiracy underlying the Great War.
As the game progresses, the player can build up the skills, weapons and equipment of their team. Key to the game is Sanity; the investigators must guard their minds against the myriad horrors that threaten to send them into the mouth of madness. Barbed wire, mustard gas and machines guns will prove to be the least dangerous thing the investigators will encounter as they venture out into No-man’s Land to overcome the horror of the Wasted Land.
Gamers can now head over to Greenlight and vote on the games they love and think should be promoted to the full Steam system. To celebrate its inclusion in the Greenlight launch, Red Wasp Design have created a new ‘Director’s Cut’ trailer for the game, full of Mythos mayhem, that can be viewed below.
