H.P. Lovecraft Anthology Series Being Developed by Legendary TV — Report

20 July 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

H.P. Lovecraft’s influence can be felt in countless writers, musicians and artists who’ve followed in the “weird fiction” exemplar’s footsteps, but the author’s work has rarely been directly adapted. Bleeding Cool reports that this may soon change, as Legendary TV is said to be answering the call of Cthulhu and creating an anthology series based on 16 of Lovecraft’s best-known works.

First 2 images from ‘Call of Cthulhu’ video game

27 May 2016 6:55 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

The first two images from Call of Cthulhu, the official video game adaptation of Chaosium’s pen & paper RPG of the same name, have been unveiled this week. The images feature Darkwater Island,a disturbing place that players will have to explore during their investigation while Cthulhu, the Great Dreamer, prepares its awakening.

In Call of Cthulhu, players will control Edward Pierce, a former veteran and private investigator in 1920s Boston. Pierce will be investigating the tragic and mysterious death of Sarah Hawkins and her family in Darkwater Island. Today’s images give you a first glimpse of the locations players will have to visit: from the sinister docks, to the manor of the deceased family, Call of Cthulhu offers a dark and oppressive ambiance that shall pay tribute to Lovecraft’s work and universe. Indeed, this banal investigation might lead you to more sinister forces and darker secrets buried deep within Darkwater Island. »

H.P. Lovecraft-Inspired I Am Providence Imperial Red Ale from Narragansett Beer

22 March 2016 5:22 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The fine folks at Narragansett Beer continued to hear “The Call of Cthulhu” last month with their release of the I Am Providence Imperial Red Ale, the fourth H.P. Lovecraft-inspired beer from the brewing company.

The I Am Providence Imperial Red Ale is based on Lovecraft’s enduring quote about the love he had for the Rhode Island capital. The Cthulhu-centric design for the red ale was fittingly created by Gunsho, a Providence artist with a unique style.

As with the previous releases in their Lovecraft Series, this beer is available on the East Coast in six-packs of 16-ounce tallboys for about $12.99 per pack.

Below, we have official details and photos of the beer, and to learn more, visit:

Exclusive Q&A with Delta Green Writer/Editor Shane Ivey

10 March 2016 12:18 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Some believe it’s based on a terrifying truth, while others harbor the hope that it’s purely fiction, but what many can agree on is that for years the Delta Green role-playing game universe has offered endless hours of eerie entertainment. With a new wave of Delta Green projects now underway, Daily Dead recently caught up with Arc Dream Publishing co-founder and lead Delta Green editor Shane Ivey, who discussed the new RPG and much more in our latest (and in this case, Lovecraftian) Q&A feature.

Thank you for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Shane. For those that are unfamiliar, can you talk a little bit about Delta Green and its Lovecraftian history?

Shane Ivey: Delta Green was a secret unit that conducted psychological operations for the Office of Strategic Services in World War II. It was disbanded with the rest of the Oss after the war. »
