Developer Red Wasp Design has announced that their game placed during World War I Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land has passed Steam’s Greenlight process, and now available for purchase. The game is based on Call of Cthulhu released on the PC and mobile devices in 2012.
The game features fourteen levels set in the trenches of World War One. Players will take control of a team of up to six investigators charged with uncovering a 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, players will build up the team’s weapons, equipment and skills 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.
Call of Cthulhu was originally written by American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft and published in 1928. The game is currently available for purchase at Steam for $4.99.
