Upgraded WW1 Themed ‘Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land’ Arrives on Steam

The multi-award winning World War 1 strategy RPG launches today on Steam for PC. The critically acclaimed title originally launched on mobile and PC in 2012. The title successfully passed Steam’s Greenlight process and now arrives as a fully-fledged game on Steam. The Steam launch includes updated graphics and the bonus DLC “Kaul’s Dairy”, which had previously only been available on iOS and is priced at $5.

The game features 14 levels set in the trenches of World War One. The player controls a team of up to six investigators charged with uncovering a deadly inhuman conspiracy underlying the clash of empires of the Great War. Barbed wire, mustard gas and machine guns prove to be the least dangerous challenges the investigators encounter as they venture into no man’s land to solve the mystery of the Wasted Land. As the game progresses, the player must build up the team’s skills, weapons and equipment to counter the rising tide of darkness. As well as the physical danger, the investigators must guard their sanity against myriad horrors that threaten to destroy them.

H.P. Lovecraft Trans-Media Bundle On VODO – A Time-Limited Special Offer

Update! The bundle is now over. Huge thanks for all who supported it, overall it was a great success!

We’re part of this amazing bundle!  Spread the word!

H.P. Lovecraft Trans-Media Bundle On VODO –  A Time-Limited Special Offer

Grab this awesome Pay-What-You-Want collection of trans-media treats inspired by the writings and mythos of cult American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, including film, indie games, ezines, ebooks, audio books and more, only on VODO!

For the as yet uninitiated, here is a good explanation of Lovecraft’s style from Wikipedia: ‘Lovecraftian horror is a sub-genre of horror fiction which emphasizes the psychological horror of the unknown (in some cases, unknowable) over gore or other elements of shock, though these may still be present… The hallmark of Lovecraft’s work was the sense that ordinary life was a thin shell over a reality which was so alien and abstract in comparison that merely contemplating it would damage the sanity of the ordinary person.’

The bundle includes the following goodies:

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land (Android & PC Game), courtesy of Red Wasp Design

Cthulhu Saves the World (PC Game), courtesy of Zeboyd Games

Die Farbe / The Colour Out Of Space (Film), courtesy of BrinkVision

Innsmouth Magazine, Collected Issues 1-4 / 5-7 (eBooks), courtesy of Innsmouth Free Press

Lovecraft Audio Books Packs 1 & 2 (mp3 audio), courtesy of The Atlanta Radio Theatre Company

Lovecraft eZine, 2 x Annual Megapacks, 2011/2012 (eBooks), courtesy of The Lovecraft eZine

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakening (PC Game), courtesy of Frogwares

Curated by Tomas Rawlings of Red Wasp Design and Auroch Digital, this special offer is available from vodo.net on a time-limited basis from August 1 to August 18 and can be tweeted about via the hashtag #CthulhuBundle.

Tomas remarked:

This is a really exciting bundle that reflects the fact that fans like myself aren’t only interested in one medium; we like games, films, books and audio and are happy to have Cthulhu on all of these and more! Each of the things selected here is something that personally I’m a huge fan of so am really pleased to see them all in one collection.”

70% of contributions are divided equally between the 7 content providers, 25% goes to VODO and 5% goes to our chosen charity for this offer, Fight For The Future. Fight for the Future is dedicated to protecting and expanding the Internet’s transformative power in our lives by creating civic campaigns that are engaging for millions of people.

Thanks for your support!
