Anderson & the Legacy of Cthulhu is a playable Horror Novel containing shooter and adventure elements. It takes the Protagonist Robert D. Anderson, last descendant of a counts dynasty, from New York to Germany around 1940, where he finds himself in the middle of the starting World War. Following his obscure and dire family history, he discovers a huge underground system of cages and caverns beneath his ancestors’ castle. There the legendary „Order of the black sun” jeopardises live as it exists with dark blasphemous rituals…

Johann Ertl, Producer JoWooD Productions, said: "Anderson is not only an entertaining, and terrifying experience for every lovecraft fan, but due to the huge volume of bonus material this has developed into an artistic masterpiece. We are delighted to be involved with such an exciting project.":

The player impersonates Robert D. Anderson, private investigator from New York, who travels to Germany during the first months of WWII in order to solve his most frightening case – to research his origins. Arriving at the castle of his ancestors, he discovers an occult secret society among the SS, called „The order of the black sun“, revealing secrets powerful enough to endanger mankind itself...

The collaborative project developed by literature experts, Pen&Paper gamemasters and campaign authors is already supported by gifted minds: Incorporating ideas that have emerged from within the community, cutscenes from award-winning director Gerhard Daurer („Game of Life“) and ingame art exclusively created by acclaimed fantasy artist Peter Siedl („project: strom“) are contributing to a playable novel that will be far more than its sole parts...

Anderson & the Legacy of Cthulhu is scheduled for Q2 2007 release.
