Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics – Summoning Shoggoths

February 12, 2018

I thought you might be interested in how we’re going all Shoggoth-y in Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics?

We also thought it might be of interest to share something created (summoned?) a few months ago. The setting for Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is earlier in the timeline of the Forest of Fear campaign. We’ll be revealing more about that soon. What we wanted though was – of course – Shoggoths. These protoplasmic tendriled creatures are being used by the Nazis much as the Elder Things also once did; a disposable slave labour. At least that’s the plan. So how might a Shoggoths work in-game? We started off early on building Shoggoth-Tech to allow us to represent them on a grid-based game but also to keep the more protoplasmic and unformed nature of them. So we needed tech that summon and reform their bodies within the grid as they move down narrow spaces, expand into a wider room, extend to attack or lose sections of body from combat damage. Anyhow here’s one of the test video we created while exploring the concept…

Plus we’ve unlocked some new starter pledge levels! (Which are a BARGAIN!)
