Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land contest

Red Wasp Design, the developers of the new Cthulhu-mythos horror/strategy RPG 'Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land' have announced a competition where you could win an original 1936 copy of a pulp fiction magazine featuring the writing of H.P. Lovecraft. The prize is an original March 1936 issue of 'Astounding Stories' which features part of Lovecraft's classic tale of Antarctic horror, At The Mountains of Madness. Not only that but it has the amazing cult illustrations of Howard V. Brown, who was commissioned to bring Lovecraft's dark imaginings to life. To win this rare prize what you have to do is submit a review to the App Store (how to) or rewrite the text of an existing review (how to) of their game 'Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land' in the style of H.P. Lovecraft. Red Wasp's designer Tomas Rawlings explains, "Lovecraft was famous for his distinctive writing style; long descriptions with lots of adjectives, using obscure words, plenty of indescribable and nameless things crawling through the text. He was an evocative writer, which is part of the reason why he is still so widely read today. We want people to go Lovecraftian-crazy in reviewing the game with gibbous, visceral pleasure and wild Bacchanalian abandon!"
