The tentacle-filled wartime roleplaying setting of Achtung! Cthulhu is coming to 3D Virtual Tabletop, the breakthrough tabletop application on iPhone, iPad, Android and desktop. 

Fresh off a massively successful 2,000% funded Kickstarter, the creators of Achtung! Cthulhu, Modiphius Entertainment, have teamed up with Tap On Fire, the developers of 3D Virtual Tabletop to offer a selection of their terrifying Cthulhu Mythos creatures and dramatic maps to committed backers upon reaching the next stretch goal at $22,000. Even if you don’t want to lead a team of heroic investigators behind enemy lines, you can still use the creatures in a game of any genre where you need horrific monsters, and you’ll have 3 more mysterious locations to explore, a Nazi underground outpost, a Nazi base and an Elder Thing Outpost!

3D Virtual Tabletop have already unlocked a string of stretch goals including a hoard of stand up minis and RPG maps on Kickstarter: and are aiming to enable network multiplayer through their final stages. Standing out through its innovative use of the touchscreen and faithful visual representation of physical desktop items, 3D Virtual Tabletop will help fans bring the terrifying world of Achtung! Cthulhu world to life.

All backers need to do to get the Achtung! Cthulhu content on their virtual tabletop is to pledge at the Battalion Plus level or higher and help spread the word to make this project hit the $22,000 mark.  The Battalion Plus reward will additionally grant backers all assets from other content stretch goals that are unlocked before the project ends.  Modiphius Entertainment will also be providing a wider range of Achtung! Cthulhu maps and minis in the in-app marketplace.
