Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land info pageAfter much chanting and summoning of dark forces, indie developer Red Wasp Design today announced that the stars will be right for the release of Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land on the 30th January 2012. To seal this pact with expectant gamers they have accompanied the date announcement with a slew of never-before released High-Definition images.

Player held trenches come under attack from a shadowy foe, in HD.

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is a turn-based 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.

The malign influence of the fell powers the cult has unlocked begins to warp the very earth itself.

Announced in May this year and set to launch initially on iPhone and iPod (both SD and HD versions), Red Wasp Design then later plan to infect other platforms such as iPad, Android, PC and consoles with their World War One themed turn-based strategy horror. The game has been developed in co-operation with Chaosium, the purveyors of the cult horror role playing game based on Lovecraft’s work, Call of Cthulhu. The much loved RPG marked it’s 30th year of publication in 2011 and continues to grow in scope and reputation.

There is much more about the game on the main information page, including:

A mission briefing in HD sets the scene for the first mission.

A character sheet of an investigator in HD.

British and German troops face off in a war that will go beyond national, even human boundaries.

Mythos creatures attempt to overwhelm the player in an HD mutated landscape.

If you cannot stem the tide of the darkness, then the war for all humanity is lost...
