Achtung! Cthulhu, "the two-fisted wartime Call of Cthulhu RPG" recently held a Kickstarter ostensibly to produce a set of Keeper's and Investigator's Guides. Over the past six weeks the fundraiser by Modiphius has proven a runaway success, adding huge amounts of material and reaching a total of more than £177,000.
With almost 2,000 backers the Achtung! Cthulhu Kickstarter has raised the equivalent of $268,000 (US) [over 2,200% of their original goal], beating Chaosium's Horror on the Orient Express fundraiser by more than $60K.
Over the ensuing weeks Modiphius promised a wealth of extra Achtung! Cthulhu products via Kickstarter stretch goals and add-ons, the first of which should start appearing in August.
A hearty congratulations are due to Chris Birch and the Modiphius team for running a spectacular event. If anyone had any doubts that Cthulhu roleplaying is alive and well, this and Chaosium's HotOE fundraiser should put paid to that.
The following is a video by Chris about what to expect.
