Call of Cthulhu publisher Chaosium is part of the Melbourne International Games Week 'Big Games Night In', next Sunday October 4th, offering free demo games and an actual play experience live on Twitch TV.
"With Melbourne International Games Week expanding its focus to include tabletop gaming, we're excited to be taking part this year. Although Chaosium is a US company, we have a significant staff presence in Melbourne - seven of our team (including me!)", said Chaosium vice president Michael O'Brien.
MIGW celebrates the power of digital connection, creativity and the strength of Melbourne, Australia's local game-makers. Amid the pandemic, Australia's premier digital games festival will look a little different this year with events taking place online.
