Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land hits Android today

Lovecraft-inspired WW1 RPG costs £3.

Turn-based strategy RPG Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land hits Android today, indie developer Red Wasp Design has announced.

The H.P. Lovecraft-inspired World War One horror is available now from Google Play (and the Amazon Android Store later) for £2.99 / $4.99 / €3.99.

You'll need Android OS version 2.3 (aka Gingerbread), OpenGL ES 2.0 plus a touch screen to run the game. The developers have tested the game on a range of devices including HTC, Samsung and Acer and are confident it will work on most touchscreen tablets and phones.

Designer Tomas Rawlings said: "We've had a huge demand from fellow gamers for Cthulhu to spawn onto Android, so we're really excited to be able to deliver on our promise today."

Red Wasp Design worked with Chaosium, publisher of the paper role-playing game, Call of Cthulhu, to make the video game version. It features nine 3D levels set in the trenches of World War 1.
