CBC, Mar 2018: Islands and Ice

16 Mar 2018 02:23 PM | PoC in MAIN

It turns out it's been three years since we began The Cthulhu Breakfast Club, a quite singular podcast, that is (probably) somewhat different from many you may hear.


Following a European tradition, to mark our birthday we're giving gifts, including a rare prototype set of Q Workshop Call of Cthulhu metal dice, a wax cylinder edition of one of our CBC podcasts, and other "nik naks" (as MartyJopson calls them).


Pull up a chair and join us at our table as we begin another year of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club....

21 Feb 2018 04:12 PM | PoC in MAIN

Out in double-quick time, the recording of this morning's meeting of The Cthulhu Breakfast Club. Join me, Fin, Marty and Val as we discuss all things Cthulhu, Lovecraft and (as usual) quite a bit more.


The CBC is a premium podcast for supporters of Yog-Sothoth. Our public podcast is News from Pnakotus which is available for all on our podcast feed.


This is probably one of our more tongue-twisting show titles, but it seemed suitably Lovecraftian...

After November's announcement of audio adventures, Modiphius Entertainment are expanding their Achtung! Cthulhu line further into other media with a crowd funder to produce Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics "Forest of Fear" - a turn-based strategy video game.


Cthulhu Tactics is being developed Auroch Digital (led by Tomas Rawling of Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land) and will be published by Ripstone.


As of writing, the Kickstarter is about to reach its initial goal of £10,000 (with announced stretch goals up to £30K) and runs until 4th March.


The game will be published by Ripstone regardless, the crowd funder is to add yet more. Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is due for release in Q4 2018.

Anchorhead 20th Anniversary Edition

05 Feb 2018 05:07 PM | PoC in MAIN

Some 20 years ago (about the time this web site was starting) Michael Gentry created one of the most well regarded Lovecraftian interactive fiction ("text adventure") games: Anchorhead. Now after two decades Michael has released a special anniversary edition of the adventure available through Steam and Itch, which features re-written code and prose, extra puzzles and more than 50 illustrations.


If you loved the old Anchorhead then there looks to be much to enjoy in the new version (you can even buy physical props). If you've never tried a computer text adventure before and like Lovecraftian atmosphere then Anchorhead may well be worth investigating further...
