Cold War Packshot550Cubicle 7 Entertainment launch Cold War espionage setting for Call of Cthulhu on Kickstarter

Following on from their first two smash-hit Kickstarters, Cthulhu Britannica: London and The Lone Wolf Adventure Game, Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd have announced that their latest project – World War Cthulhu: Cold War – is now live on Kickstarter!

World War Cthulhu: Cold War is a new 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…

Fans of the novels of John Le Carré (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy et al), shows like Homeland,The Americans and The Sandbaggers, or comics like Greg Rucka’s Queen & Country will find a lot ot like in this Call of Cthulhu setting.

The Cold War setting forms part of the wider World War Cthulhu line, which covers a range of conflicts. You don’t need any other World War Cthulhu products to play Cold War – it is a standalone setting – but it forms a part of the over-arching World War Cthulhu narrative. You will need a copy of the Call of Cthulhu Rulebook though.

The Kickstarter runs until Tuesday, 21st July, and there are some great books to be had as part of the campaign – including a deluxe, limited-edition copy of the core setting book and four supplements.
