A live unboxing of Cthulhu Death May Die from CMON.
Description from CMON
Cthulhu: Death May Die is the all new game from CMON. It brings together the creative forces of Eric M. Lang and Rob Daviau. Both designers have been making games for decades, with their own unique style and approach. Death May Die unites their talents in an experience that blends narrative, theme, and action together.
Players take on the role of Investigators working cooperatively to combat evil. Inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, the odds are definitely stacked against the heroes (and the rest of the world, for that matter). As each Chapter begins, the investigation has been completed, the ritual is underway, and the clock is ticking down until one of the Great Old Ones arrives and makes their presence known. The very mention of these ancient beings is enough to drive a person mad, and it should come as no surprise that the Investigators start the game insane. Afterall, you would have to be crazy to face off against these monstrosities.
To create the perfect aesthetic for this dark battle against evil, CMON recruited some of the most talented artists and sculptors in the gaming world. Karl Kopinski illustrates the Investigators that players get to control in the game. Adrian Smith is responsible for the Monsters they face (so you can thank him for the nightmares). Each of their designs were used in the creation of highly detailed miniature figures under the supervision of legendary sculptor Mike McVey. It all comes together to put players directly in the middle of an atmospheric, Lovecraftian tale.
In Cthulhu: Death May Die, the wheels are already in motion to summon an ancient evil. The Investigators must take advantage of their skills, lean into their loss of sanity, and work together if they hope to survive.
