Call of Cthulhu inspired game
Recently we covered the tabletop Lovecraft skinned boardgame based on Pandemic called Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu and now Cyanide Studios and Focus Entertainment are bringing Lovecrafts mythos to consoles and PC's in 2017 utilizing the Unreal game engine. The game will center on the The Call of Cthulhu and will feature RPG style play mixed with semi-open world and stealth. The story seems to deviate from the original story but follow a similiar general plot. You can find the most recent information on the offical website.
We are happy that Focus entrusted us with the development of a videogame adaptation of the legendary RPG Call of Cthulhu. As long-time fans of the license, working with longtime partner publisher Focus Home Interactive on such an original and exciting project is, once again, a privilege. We hope to offer fans the game they've long been waiting for.
We are deeply honored to be partnering with Cyanide again. They've grown alongside us for the past 10 years, to become today one of the best independent developers in Europe. With titles such as Styx: Master of Shadows and the Blood Bowl series, they've proved their creativity and ability to offer strong gaming experiences in original worlds. Cyanide has been wanting to make a Call of Cthulhu adaptation for years. They now hold all the cards to create a game that will please fans of the Cthulhu mythos, as well as players eager for rich and original gaming experiences.
This game must face up to the challenges presented by other games such as Amnesia:The Dark Descent whose terrors and powerless protagonists are heavily Lovecraftian. We certianly hope it does!
