1. Rise of the Elders: Cthulhu by Strange Matter

Rise of the Elders: Cthulhu is a tactical RPG, inspired by the work of Howard Phillips Lovecraft.
The design pillars are:

  • Base & team management
  • Turn-by-turn combat
  • Sanity loss & perma-death

Our project is somewhere at the crossroad between XCOM: EU, Eldritch Horror and The Call of Cthulhu. We seek to design a game that has the accessibility of a video game, the tactical challenge of a board game and the flavour of a good old-fashioned tabletop RPG.
