Auroch Digital and Ripstone are collaborating with the award-winning table top team at Modiphius to bring Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics – The Forest of Fear to Switch and other platforms. The strategic role-playing game launches later this year.
Here’s more on Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics from Ripstone:
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is a World War II themed strategic role-playing game in which the player controls an army of Allied heroes trapped behind enemy lines trying to uncover and foil a Nazi plot of terrifying evil. The game draws from the award-winning Achtung! Cthulhu roleplaying universe developed by Modiphius, which sees the Nazis turn to other-worldly mythical beings to bolster their war effort.
The game encompasses an array of unique gameplay features, including an innovative combat system constructed around the theme of light vs darkness. Representing the battle of ‘good vs evil’, Allied characters find solace in the light whilst the opposing Nazi army hide in the shadows awaiting their moment to strike. A skilled player can use this light and dark feature to provide an edge to their gameplay strategy.
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics also includes an intricate momentum system, which encourages the player to think strategically about their long-term plan to overthrow the Nazi reign of terror. Each successful action builds momentum for the player, which in turn opens up new lines of tactical attack. Each playable character has a tailored momentum action, ranging from a rake of machine gun fire to a fast snap-shot with a pistol. When layered with basic commands and attacks, this momentum system allows the player to build ingenious combinations of tactical brilliance.
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics actually has a Kickstarter taking place right now. Ripstone has already funded the core game, though extra characters and content can be included depending on how well the campaign does. Four days remain until the Kickstarter ends, and you can view the official page here.
