After a year of intensive development, Red Wasp Design has finally released Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land for iPhone, Apple iPod touch, and the Apple iPad. The game is a turn-based strategy RPG inspired by the works of cult horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, and developed in co-operation with Chaosium, the publishers of the cult horror role playing game, Call of Cthulhu. Here is more info on this new iPad and iPhone game:
The game features 9 levels set in the trenches of World War One. The player controls a team of up to 6 investigators charged with uncovering a deadly inhuman conspiracy underlying the clash of empires of the Great War. Barbed wire, mustard gas and machines guns will prove to be the least dangerous thing that the investigators will encounter as they venture out into no-man's land to solve the mystery of the Wasted Land. As the game progresses, the player can build up the skills, weapons and equipment of the team to suit their playing style. As well as the physical danger, the investigators must guard their sanity against the myriad horrors that threaten to destroy it.
