Can you navigate your way through Arkham City and survive with your sanity intact?

How will you fare against eldritch magic, insidious plots and the Elder Gods themselves?

Cthulhu Chronicles brings the terror and thrill of Chaosium’s award-winning role-playing game Call of Cthulhu to life on your mobile device. It emulates the tabletop experience, giving you choices to make, enemies to fight and mysteries to uncover. Mystery, intrigue, horror, and madness await your investigator, who can gain insights and lose sanity as they chart their way through Arkham City’s various interactive stories. Each story presents its own challenges and also plays a part of a larger campaign, which unfolds around you as you play. It is a great way to introduce yourself to the thrill of Call of Cthulhu, or, if you are already a player, to dive into a game and get a touch of Mythos on your own!

- Immersive Lovecraftian Horror interactive fiction stories set in 1920s New England.
- Several investigators to play, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, storylines and unique choices.
- Choices that matter: each story has multiple endings and numerous clues to uncover, unlocking new storylines and outcomes.
- The official Call of Cthulhu Interactive Fiction game developed in partnership with Chaosium Inc.
- Evocative ambient soundtrack by official Call of Cthulhu contributors Chad Fifer, Cryo Chamber, Graham Plowman and others.

Really excellent interactive fiction — totally recommended. Evocative writing, great replay value, excellent presentation. The achievement-style clues are a nice touch, and totally love the way the narration changes - often subtly - to reflect the POVs of the different protagonists. The suspense escalates at just the right pace, and choices feel intuitive and consequential, never arbitrary. Really classy stuff, 10/10 my dude.

Hey ducks_person,

Glad you really enjoyed it! We're can't wait to release our newest story next week!

Seems to be broken at the moment

Space Robot Five

Tries to download updates and crashes every time. I’ve deleted and uninstalled already to no effect.

I have a friend it does work for who has seen a few issues already. The ticket system for IAPs is garbage. Just sell the adventures themselves at a clear price. Finally, charging for Alone Against the Flames is weird considering that it’s available as a free PDF. Seems like it would’ve been a good opportunity to offer a free trial adventure before charging for the rest.

Hi Space Robot Five,

We're really sorry you're having this issue. We think we know the reason it is crashing but will need your help to troubleshoot it further. You can reach us at Hope to hear from you!

On the IAP we try to make it clear. 10 tickets = $1. Adventures cost $2 so they are 20 tickets. The reason things are 18 tickets right now is that everything is 10% off for launch. Using tickets allows us to manage our store a lot easier as well.

We thought about having a free trial adventure, but instead we gave everyone 3 free plays a day to play what they want.

Great mobile storytelling game


I’ve always loved Cthulhu and am really enjoying this game on my iPad, a fun light game I can play a few minutes at a time or for long sessions when I have the chance. I am looking forward to more.

Thanks CthulhuFan28! More is definitely coming real soon.
