The Third Reich were bad enough to begin with, but now they’ve got squid-men there’s twice as much reason to gun them down in Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics. Developed by Auroch Digital, it’s a pure tactics game with some light RPG elements based on Modiphius’s pulpy Call Of Cthulhu spinoff tabletop setting – it’s out now.
While superficially similar to XCOM, Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics seems more like Call Of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land with a dash of Hellboy. A team of military hard-nuts and mystics fight a secret war against Nazi mad scientists, occultists and monsters from beyond. Below, a launch trailer and a two hour walkthrough with the devs.
