Modiphius takes the Kickstarter gamble for Achtung! Cthulhu

There’s no doubt that Modiphius was making an impact with Achtung! Cthulhu. The blend of World War II and the Cthulhu mythos was so horrible that it was right. The multi-system approach was modern and widened the appeal of the game.

Geek Native intervied Chris Birch in July 2012 and dug a little deeper into the set up.

Now it seems Birch feels it’s time for Kickstarter. A campain to raise £8,000 will allow The WW2 Keeper’s and Investigator’s Guides to see print.

I think the covers are excellent and I’m glad they’ve been shared. The Investigator’s Guide to the Secret War has a covered from Pinturero whereas Dim Martin did the cover for the Keeper’s Guide to the Secret War. Martin also contributes to interior illustrations as well.


At the £8,000 mark the books are produced for Call of Cthulhu and if the campaign hits the £11,000 mark then Savage Worlds and Realms of Cthulhu compatibility will be unlocked. The Keeper’s Guide becomes a full colour hardback at £20,000.

It looks like the campaign has started strongly; dozens of backers in the first few hours and nearly £3,000 on the total before America even wakes up.

A side benefit of watching the (loud) pitch video? You get to find out how to pronounce Modiphius correctly.
