    The GamersCodex

    "In conclusion, Achtung! Cthulhu: Investigator’s Guide is a brilliant book, gorgeously laid out and full of useful player information to play in this setting.  I love the setting and I love this book.  I plan on running this regularly at the convention I attend.  What I like most about it is that it is intelligently put together and written, and that you can see that the writers and creators have a true passion for the setting.  It’s an enjoyable read and very inspiring for players and game masters a like.” 

    DriveThruRPG

    "This is the first RPG I have reviewed, and I must say I’m impressed. They’ve certainly engaged my curiosity and my love of storytelling. The Achtung! Cthulhu: Investigator’s Guide and Achtung! Cthulhu: Keeper’s Guide are very sharply put together and beautiful pieces to look at. I really was in awe of the effort that went into producing something like this. If you’re curious about the Achtung! Cthulhu game, check with your local game store and see if anyone is playing it. Even if you already play a particular RPG then maybe it’s time for your gaming group to try something new."

    Role Players Chronicle

    "If you want to create games within this period, with or without the Cthulhu Mythos, this is an awesome book to have. If you want to incorporate the Cthulhu Mythos, even better! As with the Investigator’s Guide you can make the argument that this book as a dual-purpose use and makes an excellent period-specific setting guide.” 

    DieHardGameFan.com

    "I highly recommend this one as it’s very much worth the price for what you’re getting out of it. The artwork looks great, the layout is easy to read and look up, and you can use this in two different game systems right off the bat, both of which have either quick start rules for playing or offer an entirely free version of the rules to play with.”

    ENWorld.org

    "The production quality of Achtung! Cthulhu: Keeper’s Guide is exceptional, with some brilliant writing from the authors, and an amazing layout.

    Achtung! Cthulhu: Keeper’s Guide presents an absolutely fantastic alternative history and setting for Call of Cthulhu RPG – not to mention that they stack on a complete Savage Worlds RPG conversion and setting – all in one book! This World War II setting makes for a really high tension backdrop to an occult investigation campaign, and the writers did a splendid job of covering a massive amount of history and events to give the GMs what they need to run the game. Horror RPG fans will doubtless find this setting just familiar enough to be readily accessible, but with enough Lovecraftian plot elements to really make the gaming experience truly unique.”
