Call of Cthulhu is a classic game of horror, combining nihilistic despair with gruesome violence and slimy monster-gods big enough to drain the meaning out of any mortal life. Godlike is a game of wartime superhero action with an innovative, lightning-fast game engine. This conversion aims to take some of the most popular facets of each game—the background and visceral fear of Cthulhu, the fast-paced resolution of Godlike—and create a distinct new gaming experience.
No, you don’t get superpowers, unless that’s what your gamemaster is after. But don’t feel cheated; this is Cthulhulike. Even superpowers won’t save you in the end.
