‘Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land’ is an award winning turn-based strategy/role-playing video game based on the also award winning Call of Cthulhu RPG. The game is set in the midst of World War One and pits a team of investigators and soldiers against an ancient evil, one older than humanity itself, who is using the carnage of the great war to build an undead army deep beneath the battlefields of Europe.
Call of Cthulhu was originally the title of a novella by cult American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) which has, since it was published in 1928, captured the imagination of generation after generation of fans. (New to Call of Cthulhu? Start here!) Lovecraft’s works also inspired a best-selling, award winning role-playing game, Call of Cthulhu. It is this RPG that forms the basis for ‘Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land’
