H.P. Lovecraft Trans-Media Bundle On VODO –  A Time-Limited Special Offer

Grab this awesome Pay-What-You-Want collection of trans-media treats inspired by the writings and mythos of cult American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, including film, indie games, ezines, ebooks, audio books and more, only on VODO!

For the as yet uninitiated, here is a good explanation of Lovecraft’s style from Wikipedia: ‘Lovecraftian horror is a sub-genre of horror fiction which emphasizes the psychological horror of the unknown (in some cases, unknowable) over gore or other elements of shock, though these may still be present… The hallmark of Lovecraft’s work was the sense that ordinary life was a thin shell over a reality which was so alien and abstract in comparison that merely contemplating it would damage the sanity of the ordinary person.’

The bundle includes the following goodies:

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land (Android & PC Game), courtesy of Red Wasp Design

Cthulhu Saves the World (PC Game), courtesy of Zeboyd Games

Die Farbe / The Colour Out Of Space (Film), courtesy of BrinkVision

Innsmouth Magazine, Collected Issues 1-4 / 5-7 (eBooks), courtesy of Innsmouth Free Press

Lovecraft Audio Books Packs 1 & 2 (mp3 audio), courtesy of The Atlanta Radio Theatre Company

Lovecraft eZine, 2 x Annual Megapacks, 2011/2012 (eBooks), courtesy of The Lovecraft eZine

Sherlock Holmes: The Awakening (PC Game), courtesy of Frogwares

Curated by Tomas Rawlings of Red Wasp Design and Auroch Digital, this special offer is available from vodo.net on a time-limited basis from August 1 to August 18 and can be tweeted about via the hashtag #CthulhuBundle.

Tomas remarked:

This is a really exciting bundle that reflects the fact that fans like myself aren’t only interested in one medium; we like games, films, books and audio and are happy to have Cthulhu on all of these and more! Each of the things selected here is something that personally I’m a huge fan of so am really pleased to see them all in one collection.”

70% of contributions are divided equally between the 7 content providers, 25% goes to VODO and 5% goes to our chosen charity for this offer, Fight For The Future. Fight for the Future is dedicated to protecting and expanding the Internet’s transformative power in our lives by creating civic campaigns that are engaging for millions of people.

Thanks for your support!
