French company Devil Pig Games will release a new board game that combines their World War II board game Heroes of Normandie with the eldritch horror of Modiphius Entertainment’s Achtung! Cthulhu RPG. Shadows over Normandie is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
Shadows over Normandie is a standalone game that features characters and forces from the Achtung! Cthulhu world. The story follows the Lost Platoon, a few weeks after D-Day, somewhere deep in the Normandie countryside. The platoon is led by Sgt. Carter of the U.S Rangers, with help from the French resistance agent Ariane Dubois, who must stop the Deep Ones and the Nazi Cult of the Black Sun before they summon Cthulhu and unleash the Great Old One on the Allied forces.
The Heroes of Normandie game is distributed in the US by Iello, and according to Devil Pig, has sold 5,000 copies worldwide. The European-based Kickstarter was funded in the first hour, and is now approaching £100,000.00 in funding with 6 days to go. Backer fulfillment is planned for December 2014, with trade release to follow in Q1 2015. The tentative US MSRP will be $80.00 – $88.00. Birch has confirmed the game will also be distributed in the U.S. by Iello.
