Achtung! Cthulhu Video Game

Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics - Action/RPG Video Game Logo

Introducing a narrative Turn-Based Strategy game with strong RPG elements set in the Achtung! Cthulhu universe

7th February, 2018: The allied powers of tabletop star Modiphius, indie publisher extraordinaire Ripstone and veteran strategy game developer Auroch Digital have announced they are marshalling their collective forces to will bring the award-winning Achtung! Cthulhu tabletop series to PC, in their new video game: Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics – The Forest of Fear, later this year.

Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics – The Forest of Fear is a World War II themed strategic role-playing game in which the Nazis have turned to other-worldly beings to bolster their war effort. In this universe, the Nazi’s well-known obsession with the occult has yielded results, with their discovery that the creatures of the Cthulhu Mythos are real. Thus begins ‘The Secret War’ where covert allied operators fight desperate battles against an unholy alliance of Nazi science and Mythos sorcery. Featuring Shoggoth-powered Panzers, HMG-armed investigators, mutated Nazi super soldiers, secret bunkers filled with mysterious research and alien artifact-powered wonder weapons – Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics – The Forest of Fear has it all!

Achtung! Cthulhu originally debuted five years ago as a Kickstarter project by the then nascent Modiphius. It smashed its original funding goal many times over and has expanded to a wide range of tabletop products including expansions to the RPG, a skirmish miniatures game, novels, audio dramas, and multiple crossovers with other licenses. It has wowed critics as well as players with its sweeping apocalyptic narrative arc and inventive monstrous creations, winning multiple awards since its release.

Tomas Rawlings, Chief Commander at Auroch Digital has released a statement only recently broken by the boffins at Bletchley Park, “It’s a real honor to work alongside Modiphius and Ripstone on what will be a premium Cthulhu-mashup. Having worked with the Ripstone team before back in the PlayStation 3 days, together we made amazing strategy games, and I’m confident history will repeat itself!”

Space 1889: Venus New Source Book For The RPG

Space 1889 RPG Venus Sourcebook
Space 1889 RPG Venus Sourcebook
Modiphius have just announce the release of Space 1889: Venus, a major new source book for the Space 1889 RPG, steampunk Victorian roleplaying in the worlds created by Jules Verne, HG Wells and Arthur Conan Doyle.

Available as a 178 page printed black and white book or as PDF, this marks the first of a new wave of releases for the Space 1889 RPG collection, following the recent reprint of the core book.

From before the beginnings of history, mankind had spun tales and wondered about that bright point of light named for the Roman goddess of love: Venus, the enigmatic, ever-shifting star of evening and of morning. Yet when the first pioneers started their journey into the ether, they found the Morning Star to be a deadly Garden of Eden

With this source book you can now plunge into the “green hell”! Try your luck as a soldier-of-fortune in the pioneer settlements, or as a scientist, exploring the wonders of a new world. As a colonist you can create a new home far away from Mother Earth. Or you can choose to play a Venusian warrior defending his homeland against the cold, emotionless invaders from beyond space. It’s up to you!

This source book tells you everything you need to know about the settlements of the four nations represented on Venus – Great Britain, Germany, Italy, and Russia – as well as some minor powers and stakeholders:

Also included is an extensive chapter on the “Ha”, as the Venusians call themselves, concerning the culture, the biology, and the young civilization of the alien Lizard-men that allows you to portray a Venusian authentically during play.

You will also find extensive material on the unique flora and fauna of the Morning Star – not only new monsters to trouble your player characters, but also the innumerable exotic biological treasures flourishing on Venus.

Inside is new equipment, sample characters and tips and advice on how to play adventures on Venus, as well as a detailed “chemistry set” with exciting new rules for inventions. These will allow your player characters to exploit the natural resources of Venus and develop new drugs, chemicals, and all kinds of bizarre and wondrous substances.

Last but not least, we will also unveil many a secret that still lies hidden beneath the misty shrouds of the Green Planet.

Fallout: Wasteland Warfare Skirmish Game FAQ and More Images!

Fallout Nuka Cola Skirmish Game Terrain Piece
Fallout Nuka Cola Skirmish Game Terrain Piece
Fallout: Wasteland Warfare is a tabletop skirmish game based on the video game series. This will use 32mm miniatures (similar scale to Games Workshop Miniatures). We have previously covered the Fallout Skirmish Game Here

(Note this is NOT the same game as the Fantasy Flight Fallout Boardgame)

Q) Will both starter boxes include the same stuff?

We’re planning two versions of the starter set, both will include all the same rules components – rules, dice, counters, cards. Each will include a different selection of miniatures – one in high quality resin, the other pre-assembled PVC figures. The PVC set will include more figures and as a result, a different set of scenarios (though we’ll make both starter set scenarios available online in PDF)

Q) Will I have to buy the PVC starter set to get all the miniatures?

The PVC starter set will include figures that you can already get in resin. We’re not forcing collectors to get this set so they have all the designs. However they will be identical scale so if you want to quickly expand your collection it will be a great way to do it at a very affordable price.

Q) When are they coming out?

The resin starter set is planned for the pre-order whilst the PVC set is planned for February/March

Q) Can I play it straight out of the box?

You can play the PVC starter set straight out of the box as the figures are pre-assembled – we even give you an introductory set of missions to learn the rules. The resin set will need a small amount of assembly but we’re making this as easy as possible.

Q) How many players can you have?

Fallout: Wasteland Warfare is designed as a traditional player vs player miniatures game experience. However we’re also including solo rules and a solo campaign so you can play on your own, or play co-op with a friend against the game.

Q) What do you do in the game?

It is a miniatures wargame so you’ll be fighting each other’s forces however we’re also drawing on the video game experience so you’ll be hacking terminals, searching Nuka Cola machines, rusted Sedans and Vault-Tec Containers either for loot or caps or as part of narrative storylines. You’ll be fighting against the wasteland itself as radiation, dust storms and grotesque creatures and robots try to take you down. You can play straight points (caps!) based battles or follow a campaign storyline and slowly evolve your crew with bonuses based on how you upgrade your settlement.

Q) Do I have to buy loads of expansions?

The base set should be enough for plenty of games – regardless of which one you buy, however each expansion will give you more characters or units, from different factions, plus new AI and Encounter cards that will enhance the experience. We’ll be uploading free missions online to keep you entertained as well releasing bigger campaign boxed sets that give you lots of new features.

Q) Will the starter sets be available in other languages?

We will be working with localisation partners to bring both the resin and PVC starter sets to France, Germany, Russia, Italy, Spain and more. Realistically with the time it takes for approvals these versions will come out later in the summer 2018
