Publisher Ripstone and developer Auroch Digital announce Achtung! Cthulhu
Tactics will be released later this year for PC and consoles, offering this
crowdfunded strategy/RPG where
supernatural forces play a significant role in the outcome of World War II.
Here's a trailer
from this Hitler meets Lovecraft mashup, and here are more details:
Veteran strategy game developer Auroch Digital, and indie publisher
extraordinaire Ripstone have collaborated with the award-winning table top team
at Modiphius to create Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics - The Forest of Fear which is
set for release on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch later this
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is a World War II themed strategic role-playing game in
which the player controls an army of Allied heroes trapped behind enemy lines
trying to uncover and foil a Nazi plot of terrifying evil. The game draws from
the award-winning Achtung! Cthulhu roleplaying universe developed by Modiphius,
which sees the Nazis turn to other-worldly mythical beings to bolster their war
The game encompasses an array of unique gameplay features, including an
innovative combat system constructed around the theme of light vs darkness.
Representing the battle of ‘good vs evil’, Allied characters find solace in the
light whilst the opposing Nazi army hide in the shadows awaiting their moment to
strike. A skilled player can use this light and dark feature to provide an edge
to their gameplay strategy.
Funded on March 5th, barely any assets and zero actual gameplay to show, but they are going to release by the end of 2018?
I'll take the over on that bet.
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishfull thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms. -Robert Heinlein
