Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is a turn-based strategy RPG currently in iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and heading to more platforms soon! The game is inspired by the works of cult horror writer H.P. Lovecraft and developed in co-operation with Chaosium, the publishers of the cult horror role playing game, Call of Cthulhu.
The game is set in the trenches of World War One and draws inspiration from Lovecraft’s original setting for ‘Herbert West: Reanimator’. In the story, Dr. Herbert West volunteers his services in the British cause and happily finds himself with a ready supply of bodies amidst the carnage. The game explores the premise of what if Dr West was not an isolated operator but part of something much bigger and more dangerous? In The Wasted Land we find a rogue German military cult using the war as cover for a nefarious plan. Sent over to stop them is the maverick academic and occultist Professor Brightmeer. He and his team have to descend into the middle of a human war to face a battle involving much older and darker powers than the German or British empires.
In the game the player controls a team of up to six investigators charged with uncovering and halting the inhuman conspiracy. Barbed wire, mustard gas and machines guns will prove to be the least dangerous thing that the investigators will encounter as they venture out into no-man’s land to solve the mystery of the Wasted Land. As the game progresses, the player can build up the skills, weapons and equipment of the team to suit their playing style. As well as the physical danger, the investigators must guard their sanity against the myriad of horrors that threaten to destroy it.
The game is now out on the app store, so if you feel like a bit of sanity loss, then it is time to travel into the Wasted Land…

Does it involve Johnny Got His Gun? I found that book far more terrifying than anything Lovecraft ever wrote.
