Our World War Cthulhu: Cold War Kickstarter has been a huge success and we wanted to say a huge thank you to all of our backers who supported us and helped spread the word. Thanks to you all we hit our funding target within the first 3 hours, then went on to hit nine stretch goals, the campaign closing out at £42,607 (that's over $66,500!), far exceeding our expectations! So thank you!

Because we hit so many of our stretch goals, we'll be able to make both the Core Setting Book and many of the supplements even better than we otherwise could have. Here's how it all ended up:

  • 256-page Core Setting Book - with extra material on the intelligence theatres of the Cold War as well as a section on operations in the UK.
  • Limited-edition, deluxe version, foil-stamped of the Core Setting Book.
  • 6-part campaign - Yesterday's Men.
  • 6-scenario supplement - Covert Actions.
  • Player's Guide - Section 46 Operations Manual.
  • A set of die-cut card handouts - Kickstarter exclusive!

Don't worry if you missed out on the Kickstarter - everything except the handouts will available in gaming stores worldwide next year. But, to make sure you don't miss out next time - make sure you sign up to our newsletter!

Make sure you help spread the word too - on Facebook, G+, Twitter, forums, dead drops, numbers station - as the more people who get involved before the end of the Kickstarter, the better the game becomes for everyone!

World War Cthulhu is a series of settings for Call of Cthulhu, each taking one of the conflicts of the 20th century to be its focus. Each of these settings stands alone, but they all exist as part of the same continuity, with plots, characters and events from one setting continuing to have ripples into the past and the future. And this means if you’ve played our Second World War setting, World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, you’re going to want to check out our Kickstarter for World War Cthulhu: Cold War too.

The World War Cthulhu: Cold War Kickstarter is progressing really well, and so too is work on the Core Setting Book itself. Line developer Scott Dorward has assembled a crack team of writers and work is well under way.

There are still 20 days left to go and plenty more stretch goals to hit – we’re excited to see how big the Campaign Book will grow, as well as whether we'll get to reveal some of the other exciting stretch goals we have planned.

Today we thought we’d take a closer look at what you can expect to find inside the core book, starting with the Table of Contents.

Thanks to the support of our backers, our World War Cthulhu: Cold War Kickstarter has blown through another of its stretch goals over the weekend – this means that the campaign book has grown to become five-parts! Up until now, all we’ve said about the campaign is its name: Yesterday’s Men. But I’ve just been handed a manila folder by a shady man in a trenchcoat that reveals some more information…

World War Cthulhu: Cold War is currently funding on Kickstarter. It is a Call of Cthulhu setting full of thrilling espionage, tense horror and sudden betrayal set at the height of the Cold War in the 1970s. The tangled webs of the spymasters tear and rejoin, double and triple agents make their moves and counter-moves, and it’s hard to be sure which side you’re really working for. Nuclear destruction hangs over everyone, and a few people at the heart of western intelligence continue their personal battle against the insidious influence of a much older enemy…

"What is Section 46? That, my friend, is a very dangerous question. A question like that, asked to the wrong person, could get a man killed. Or worse. But sometimes, to find the truth, you have to ask dangerous questions – today I've delved a little deeper into the setting to find out about Section 46, the illicit organisation that the investigators belong to during the Cold War."

Thanks to the generosity and support of our backers, our latest Kickstarter project – World War Cthulhu: Cold War – funded yesterday in a little over 3 hours, and we have already unlocked our first stretch goal! Thanks to everyone who has backed us so far and shared the project - your support means a lot to us.

We’re also humbled to have been chosen as a staff pick by Kickstarter, made the top 10 in Kicktraq’s Hot List of Games (of all types), and top 5 in Tabletop Games.

Over the course of the Kickstarter we’ll be taking a much more in-depth look at the setting for World War Cthulhu: Cold War, as well as at each of the supplements in turn. As we’ve reached our first stretch goal already – adding a 4th part to the campaign book, Yesterday's Men – we’ll be back soon to take a closer look at it.

Thank you all once again – we can’t do it without your help and support, so please keep spreading the word, sharing the Kickstarter on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and talking about it in your favourite gaming forum! By spreading the word, you’re helping us make it the best setting it can be, with a fantastic core book and some great supplements to support it.
