A Talk (& Quiz with Prizes!!) About Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land on 6th Jan 2012

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land info pageWe’re going to be giving a bit of a talk (with a quiz and prizes!!) on the 6th January from 1 till 2pm at the PM Studio in Bristol.  It’s free to attend and Shoggoths are wellcome.  Here’s the info:

Red Wasp Design are nearing the end of the development of the anticipated game ‘Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land’.  The game is based on the cult horror RPG, Call of Cthulhu, which is itself based on the writings of H.P.Lovecraft. Both the RPG and the works of Lovecraft are much loved and have become a powerful meme. From South Park to cuddly toys, from horror fiction to fan-made films; the Cthulhu-meme has become all powerful.  While it’s a bonus to be making a game based on such a well known idea, it also makes it a huge challenge.

Existing fans have their own expectations and yet the mobile phone has its own limitations on memory.  Red Wasp Design will talk about the challenges and opportunities of adapting a paper-based game into a digital space whilst trying to keep fans happy and the development manageable.

During the lunchtime talk we’re also going to run a quick Lovecraft/Mythos themed quiz with an amazing prize for the winner – so come armed with knowledge of R’lyeh and Chthonians…


Update: There is a great write-up about the talk and it can be found here.
