UPDATE: We’ve been informed that for reasons outside our control, the folks at “Into The Darkness” have had to repost their APOCTHULHU Actual Play video at a new YouTube URL. If you’d like to watch it, the correct video can be reached by clicking this link.
Thanks again to “Into The Darkness” for making such an entertaining on-shot session. Prior to the old video being removed, it had already attracted a lot of interest and a number of enthusiastic viewer comments.
Several people have asked us already whether there are any instructional videos about APOCTHULHU, or which show the game system in action. Until now we’ve had to say “eh, not yet”.
But that all changed yesterday when the amazing “Into The Darkness” gaming group released a YouTube video of a recent APOCTHULHU one-shot they played. The scenario they played was a custom creation of GM Tyler Hudak (a friend of the Cthulhu Reborn family) — althought it’s a tale set in one of the nine Lovecraftian Post-Apocalypse settings included in the core rulebook.
Join Tyler and five desperate Post-Apocalypse Survivors as they navigate their way through the shadow-haunted reality of Dave Sokolowski’s “Under A Charcoal Sky” setting. In the actual play recording the characters are lured out of their compound by a peculiar looping transmission that starts to emerge from their AM radios. The female voice is apparently broadcasting live … but all she ever says is the same sequence of numbers. Over and over. And over. What does it mean? And what terrible fate will transpire if she ever stops?

Was a privilege to be part of this. Great roleplaying from fellow players and great GM skills from Tyler.

Mechanics and setting of Apocthulhu is refreshing and quick to learn. Highly recommend homebrewers start concocting cosmic horrors using this system!
