In this game you'll be playing board game publishers who are driving everyone else mad by releasing more and more Cthulhu themed games.

Only if I can defeat monsters from the Cthulhu universe while publishing board games, otherwise it'd be lame.

I see a difference between Cthulhu games and Zombie games.

There have been a fair number of very good Cthulhu games. Arkham Horror, Eldritch Horror, Call of Cthulhu LCG, Elder Sign, Cthulhu Wars, Pandemic Reight of Cthulhu. Many look forward to those.
I'll say however that there's also crap with a pasted-on Cthulhu themes so i'll grant you that (Cthulhu Dice).

While with zombies... most of those games were just crap. Maybe Dead of Winter was passable...
Anyone looking forward to the next big zombie game?

Rival gangs of game publishers attempt to determine the Apocalypse scenerio

Cultist games - infect all with the memes of madness (zombies and other supernaturals included)

Eurodrone games - reduce individuality to an unthinking sameness that defies madness with dull apathy and a robotic hive mentality

Ameribomb games - mostly just want things to go boom or crash into things

But how do we make a game out of this 3 way conflict?zombierobotninja

Edit: Maybe do it from the game buyers perspective with deceptive titles and descriptions for various games with game purchase affecting the sanity and behavior chart (hmm - a matrix board of some kind with affects due to "sanity" positioning - add some cards and we can represent all 3 of our gaming "forces"). Can you be the type of gamer you want to be or will you be lured in by deceptive advertising from the dark (or the dull) side? Hmmm....................

Insanity seems inevitable.

Pete (supposes that's no different from other Cthulhu themed games)

Hey! You don't know where that cursor has been!

Don't forget the portals. Cthulhu-themed games should always include portals.
