  • about 2 months ago

In this episode we get into the detail of the game, Adam Carter-Groves (Designer) and Tomas Rawling (Design Director) are on hand to talk about a number of topics. What does the player get to do in game? How do they interact with the setting around them? We learn more about the momentum mechanic, how players can use it to the best of their ability and also talk about the shopping list of World War 2 action avaliable to the player. Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is avaliable on Steam on the 4th October.  

Episode 2: Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics - The Function Call of Cthulhu

  • 3 months ago

How do you translate the pulp-y action of the video game's source material, and its strong themes of good and evil and light dark, into a strategy experience that doesn't just feel like yet another XCOM? How do you ensure complex mechanics and information is presented in a clear and understandable way? These are a couple of the questions Nina and Adam (Producer and Designer respectively) will be answering in this episode, wherein we take a look at, among other things, a feature called The Shroud.
