“Call of Cthulhu” was originally the title of a novella by cult horror writer H.P. Lovecraft which has, since it was published in 1928, captured the imagination of generation after generation of fans.
His works also inspired a best selling role-playing game, “Call of Cthulhu,” which celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2011. Over the years, as well as gathering many dedicated players, it has won numerous awards, from the Game Designer’s Guild Select Award in 1981 to being voted as the number 1 Gothic/Horror RPG by readers of GamingReport.com in 2003. Chaosium’s Dustin Wright said of the project, “Chaosium is very excited to be working with the Red Wasp Design team to bring Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land to fruition. We look forward to playing it.”
Newcomers Red Wasp Design, is founded by game industry experienced developers who have previously worked on huge hits such as Conflict: Desert Storm, Buzz! franchise and the acclaimed Playstation Network hit Savage Moon. “Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land” will be their first title, and is a self-funded project by the indie studio. Red Wasp’s Tomas Rawlings said, “I’ve been a huge fan of Lovecraft since I was about 10 years old when I discovered his writing and the RPG his work had inspired. Lovecraft’s nightmare vision of a handful of doomed humans battling the minions of slumbering titanic entities really had me hooked from the start. I’ve wanted to do a video game inspired by his work and the RPG for a long time.”
