Red Wasp Design Talk in #Bristol 6th Jan 2012

January 4, 2012

Red Wasp Design (which I’m part of) are going to be giving a bit of a talk (with a quiz and prizes!!) on the 6th January from 1 till 2pm at the PM Studio in Bristol.  It’s free to attend and Shoggoths are wellcome.  Here’s the info:

Friday, 6 January 2012 1:00pm – 2:00pm

Red Wasp Design are nearing the end of the development of the anticipated game ‘Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land’.  The game is based on the cult horror RPG, Call of Cthulhu, which is itself based on the writings of H.P.Lovecraft. Both the RPG and the works of Lovecraft are much loved and have become a powerful meme. From South Park to cuddly toys, from horror fiction to fan-made films; the Cthulhu-meme has become all powerful.  While it’s a bonus to be making a game based on such a well known idea, it also makes it a huge challenge.

Existing fans have their own expectations and yet the mobile phone has its own limitations on memory.  Red Wasp Design will talk about the challenges and opportunities of adapting a paper-based game into a digital space whilst trying to keep fans happy and the development manageable.

During the lunchtime talk we’re also going to run a quick Lovecraft/Mythos themed quiz with an amazing prize for the winner – so come armed with knowledge of R’lyeh and Chthonians…
