Throughout 2015, we're bringing World War Cthulhu to Kickstarter, allowing us to bring our gritty espionage take on Call of Cthulhu to three new eras of the 20th Century. The first of these Kickstarted settings (by popular demand!) will be World War Cthulhu: Cold War, which acts as a natural sequel but stark contrast to World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour.

World War Cthulhu: Cold War 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. You play spies working for British intelligence, battling both the Soviet and Mythos threat. You are lost in an ocean of treachery, unsure of who to trust, trying against all odds to buy the world one more day…

Britain in the 1970s, and the Summer of Love has turned into the Winter of Discontent, as industrial strikes and oppressive police action causes strife amidst the population. The intelligence services reel from the revelations of the Cambridge Five, Soviet double agents within their own ranks. There is a climate of distrust both internally and, externally, in the loyalties and competence of the services themselves. Yet an older ideological conflict is coming to a head, forcing those in the know of the Mythos to choose sides…

In World War Cthulhu: Cold War you play Western agents working for Section 46, highly trained paramilitary ‘operatives’ deployed by the British government to conduct its most shadowy of missions – missions against not only the enemies of the West but also the enemies of humanity, that ‘other enemy’. You work for the shadowy N, but his enigmatic rival H haunts your dreams too, often leaving you caught between their warring ideologies. At any one time you might be engaged in multiple missions for multiple agencies, never really clear as to where any of them have come from. Which mission objectives are valid and which must be kept deniable? Which are right, which are wrong? And can you really tell the difference any more?

You are forced to deal with forces the human mind cannot comprehend – the balance of power, the threat of nuclear war, and the ever-present danger posed by the Mythos. You don’t know who to trust any more – least of all yourself.

World War Cthulhu: Cold War is coming to Kickstarter soon – and we need your help in getting the word out and making it as special as can be. Keep an eye on the website over the coming weeks for more information as we declassify it, and in the meantime feast your eye on this trailer for a taste of what's to come for the Cold War - and beyond:
