Can your team of investigators keep their grip on sanity long enough to stop these diabolical plans? The fate of humanity is in your hands...

Developed in conjunction with Chaosium and based their multi-award winning Call of Cthulhu RPG.

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown." H.P.Lovecraft

Full 3D graphics with high quality textures, images and effects to bring the action alive.

All visuals are enhanced for retina and iPad displays.

Build your team up to match your gaming style; will you shred your foes with massed rifle fire or blast them with powerful spells gleaned from forbidden tomes? It's your choice!

Integrates to Game Centre and Open Feint with challenging achievements to unlock.

Call of Cthulhu was originally the title of a novella by cult American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft (18901937) which has, since it was published in 1928, captured the imagination of generation after generation of fans. Returning to the horror from Lovecraft's original 'Reanimator' set during the dark days of WW1, Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land draws the player into a nightmare world where the terror of mustard gas and trench warfare are but a foretaste of what is to follow.

Looks very cool, kind of like Diablo. I wonder if you end up having a final showdown with Cthulhu?
