Our World War Cthulhu: Cold War Kickstarter has been a huge success and we wanted to say a huge thank you to all of our backers who supported us and helped spread the word. Thanks to you all we hit our funding target within the first 3 hours, then went on to hit nine stretch goals, the campaign closing out at £42,607 (that's over $66,500!), far exceeding our expectations! So thank you!

Because we hit so many of our stretch goals, we'll be able to make both the Core Setting Book and many of the supplements even better than we otherwise could have. Here's how it all ended up:

  • 256-page Core Setting Book - with extra material on the intelligence theatres of the Cold War as well as a section on operations in the UK.
  • Limited-edition, deluxe version, foil-stamped of the Core Setting Book.
  • 6-part campaign - Yesterday's Men.
  • 6-scenario supplement - Covert Actions.
  • Player's Guide - Section 46 Operations Manual.
  • A set of die-cut card handouts - Kickstarter exclusive!

Don't worry if you missed out on the Kickstarter - everything except the handouts will available in gaming stores worldwide next year. But, to make sure you don't miss out next time - make sure you sign up to our newsletter!

Yesterday we revealed the cover for the next Kuro supplement, Kuro Tensei, which will be available to pre-order soon.

But what is Kuro? Well, it’s our roleplaying game of futuristic, Japanese-style horror. Think cyberpunk combined with ghost stories. It’s dark, scary stuff, and in today’s blog we thought we’d take a closer look.
