Our First Look At Call Of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land

Seen here are images from the upcoming Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land iPhone game. In them we catch a glimpse of some of the game's characters under attack by the undead and Dark Young.

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is in development by Red Wasp Design. While the World War One themed turn-based strategy game is hitting the iPhone and iPod first, it will eventually be coming to the iPad, Android, PC and consoles.

The developers are working with Chaosium, the folks behind the role playing game based on Lovecraft's work, to make this title.

"Lovecraft and his peers created really iconic monsters that tap into our deepest fears," game designer Tomas Rawlings said in a press release. "As huge fans of his stories, we've worked really hard to transfer the essence of these alien horrors into a game form. We're blending the core ideas of the classic role-playing game along with our experience of gameplay design all wrapped in our new 3D engine to craft what we hope is a gaming experience of malignant evil!"


    As huge fans? Then why all the gunplay?

      Hahaha, seconded. I was looking at this and wondering, what the hell does this have to do with ANY Chaosium Cthulhu property except it has the monsters and decade?

      Of course we all know this is just a reproducted press release, and the person who published it at Kotaku probably didn't even get to ask questions like this, if they'd known to ask either.

    Good thing Lovecraft isn't around to see this
