Upcoming 3D TBS RPG Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land - Red Wasp Design

TouchArcades Article

Quote:
The Wasted Land takes place in an alternate World War I where our fair soldiers find a more impressive foe to face: an undead army that is ravaging Europe. It's up to you to find a way to stop the corpse advance through a mix of turn-based action.

“We're doing our own thing — but in terms of gameplay, players of games like X-COM or Fire Emblem would understand where we are getting inspiration from,” the representative said.

“As in the core game is turn-based in movement and combat (as is the RPG) and there is a strong narrative that drives the levels forward. There is also a strong role-play element is how you develop your characters from level to level.”
Ohh! If this game has gameplay similar to "X-COM or Fire Emblem", it will be amazing!



Release date and price will be announced in the summer!

Oh my... both Star Wars: BfH and Filth Fair were mediocre at best. Hope they'll doing a better job this time.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Reading their blog, I'm glad they have a decided to make everything to a proportionate scale (like X-Com).

I like so much Call of Cthulhu for PC
What is this? FPS, Adventure or RPG?
3D or 2D?

Excellent looking game... you can't go wrong with turn based strategy and the Lovecraft mythos are under-represented on App Store.
