Call of Cthulhu is finally making an appearance on the iPhone! Announced simultaneously by Chaosium and Red Wasp Design, the game (entitled “Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land”) will be a 3d turn based strategy/RPG app for iPhones, iPod Touches and Android devices, with other devices slated for development. As Red Wasp’s media release says,
Set in the midst of World War One, the game pits a team of investigators and soldiers against an ancient enemy, older than humanity itself, who is using the carnage of the great war to build an undead army deep beneath the battlefields of Europe. The game is a single player 3D game that will initially come out on iPhone, iPod Touch & Android, with more platforms planned to follow.
For the moment the release date is unknown, but I for one will be eagerly waiting.
