Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land

A friend of mine notified me this is coming to the PC next week. I can’t find anything out about it but hype. Does anyone have any experience with it?

If its a port of the iOS game, people say it has good turn based mechanics, but the whole Cthulhu atmosphere needs a lot of work.

It’s…ok, I guess, on the iPad. The AI is pretty lousy and the writing/atmosphere really misses the boat in terms of Cthulhu-creepiness. Lovecraft it ain’t.

That’s what I was afraid of.

Yeah, I wish I could recommend this, but I don’t think I (a huge X-COM and Lovecraft fan) can really do that. The PC version will probably be an improvement in terms of making it easier to click on things, but you’ve still end up with a game with awkward UI, a lame story, and mediocre tactical combat. Sorry.

Who would’ve guessed someone named Nightgaunt was an H. P. Lovecraft fan? ;-)
