Last month we asked Cthulhu or Potter when Third Eye Games announced H.P. Lovecraft Preparatory School. Now the game is on Kickstarter, seeking just US$4,000 to fund, and there’s a chance to review the pitch for ourselves.
Third Eye Games has announced a Kickstarter for H.P. Lovecraft. Geek Native reached out to owner Eloy Lasanta and asked whether the game would feel more like Cthulhu or the shenanigans of a certain boy wizard. This is the response; Good question! HPL Prep has all the schooling and fantasy feel, but instead of students […]
Studio WonderCabinet have history in running successful Lovecraft Kickstarter. This year they’re back and asking for $3,000 for The Dreamlands set of wrapping paper and Christmas cards. They already have $6,000 in the pot and, at the time of writing, more than 20 days to collect more funds. The catch? They’re encouraging Europeans to consider […]

D&D was all about facing down monsters, gaining wealth and power, and telling epic fantasy stories. CoC was all about avoiding monsters, staying alive and sane, and telling chilling horror stories. D&D had tons of rules and had roots in minature wargamming; […]
Failbetter Games has produced interactive books like Fallen London for the Storynexus platform. Their latest game is on Steam and GOG. The video gives the impression of Call of Cthulhu meets boat simulation. There’s more to it than that. There’s some 200,000+ words in this game – it’s another take on modern storytelling.
