Heroes of Normandie, the Hollywood style World War Two board game, currently being Kickstarted, has been dragged thrashing and screaming into the dark world of Achtung! Cthulhu as the two brands crash together in a maelstrom of Hollywood style horror. Inspired by the likes of Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth and Indiana Jones, Devil Pig Games will be creating an official expansion to be released Winter 2014 for their Heroes of Normandie game board game, titled Achtung! Cthulhu: Shadows Over Normandie. This will also be part of an exclusive offer on Kickstarter if they hit their Stretch Goal.
“Devil Pig Games were wondering how to pay tribute to these iconic stories. Zombies? Mad Nazi Professors? Super Powered Nazi Trooopers? Ancient Elder Gods and Creatures? Luckily Chris Birch from Modiphius proposed the awesome collaboration just in time. ‘Yes Master!’ We said, totally drawn to the deep and ancient power of the Great Old Ones and the excitement of having to make new rules and tokens for Byakhees, Chthonians, heroic investigators, magic and dark Nazi forces for our beloved game.” Clement Seurat from Devil Pig Games barely whispered as the tentacle tightened around his neck!
This exclusive Kickstarter Stretch Goal, will include 3 new board tiles covering Achtung! Cthulhu Mythos locations and 2 complete punchboards full of Investigators, Nazi cultists, Black Sun troopers and Sorceror’s and plenty of Cthulhu creatures to drive the heroes screaming for the beaches. To accompany this, a series of three terrifying Achtung! Cthulhu: Shadows Over Normandie! Scenarios will launch the player’s dark wartime adventures!
