Cthulhu: Death May Die

31 May 2018 09:49 #274335 by Matt Thrower

Something has awoken the Great Old Ones. An unstoppable incantation has begun, and the fate of the world lies in the hands of a few brave Investigators. However, time is short. An unspeakable horror is making its way to our world with each passing second. The only hope is to disrupt the ritual just enough so that when the ancient god from another dimension arrives, the Investigators will have a brief window when it’s vulnerable… and that’s when they shoot it in the face.

Was totally up for this: Lang, Daviau and Cthulhu sounds like peak trash.

Then I read it was based on Eldritch Horror and my interest plummeted.

Then I saw it was CMON, whom I still haven't forgotten for the puerile edgelordiness of "Hate" and it went ice-cold.

I'm hoping such a talented pair can rescue this from oblivion. But I fear it's a forlorn hope.

Davaiu’s best work was in mass market games.

Lang’s best work was Chaos in the Old World.

CMON’s best work is a reprint of Modern Art.

So.....

I'm sure it will be a beautiful production, but based on the description, I have no interest in this.

Leacock in the title of the thread? Is that an error?

This sounds like an excuse to KS miniatures. It will fund with room to spare.

Some future cataclysm will wipe out the internet. Some generations after that, archaeologists will be puzzled when they find so many unpainted Kickstarter miniatures in landfills.

What? No! I totally didn't just go back and correct that.

I want a moratorium on anything to do with Cthulhu, Zombies, and Steampunk (but, that might be dead already). It's time for a new zeitgeist to appear.

A couple more seasons of The Walking Dead should be enough to make everybody lose interest in zombies.

I would buy it. Unfortunately, if it Kickstarts, it will be bloated and expensive AF

This, and if I recall CMON is still one of the publishers who peddles in KS-exclusive shit, which is still my #1 annoyance with these preorder systems. Looking forward to impressions of it, at least.

This would normally have my number dialed in.
However...
Lang and Daviau are not fail proof.
If this game could be more like Blood Rage and less like KaosBall - I might have interest rekindled.
If this game could could be more like Risk Legacy and less like Seafall - I might have interest rekindled.
I've never been disappointed with CMON production values, and I dig's Smith's artwork. Coupled with the Mythos, and THAT has been interested.
But after buying The Others, I think there may be a lot of illustrative overlap. I've already detected a lot of that between Blood Rage > Rising Sun > Hate.

This has the earmarks of being something that I am entirely uninterested in, and simultaneously something that those of us who are uninterested will have to hear about to the point of nausea.
