Fantasy Flight Take Elder Signs Digital

October 20, 2011 by dracs

Good news to all you Cthulhu devotees, Fantasy Flight Games are now releasing their Lovecraftian dice game Elder Signs in a new digital format.

Are you ready to play Elder Signs: Omens?

This game will soon be available to play with iPhone, iPod, iPad, Mac OS X and Android.

Of course with this change over to electronic format there are a couple of changes. Here’s what Fantasy Flight have listed will be different.

  • Arguably the most powerful Ancient One in Lovecraft’s Mythos, Azathoth’s awesome power is indisputable. This infinitely destructive deity is therefore the focal point of Elder Sign: Omens, and the only available Ancient One.
  • A number of subtle changes increase the peril of defending humanity. For example, the random negative effects drawn every midnight are more challenging, and the frequency of “no effect” results has been decreased. Monsters have likewise been altered to make them more difficult.
  • Finally, there are no Ally cards in Elder Sign: Omens, which further streamlines play while increasing the overall challenge.

Personally I am really looking forward to getting this on my iPod. How about you guys? Any of you think you’ll get it? Anyone played the dice game already got any thoughts on how this new format will effect it?
