Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is a turn-based strategy game based on the mythos created by H. P. Lovecraft. The game puts the player in control of a squad of British soldiers facing unspeakable horrors in the trenches of World War 1, following the game system of Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu pen-and-paper role-playing game. The surviving soldiers gain experience points during missions, that they can use to improve their skills. Skills are also improved by simply using them: a soldier using a rifle several times will become better with this particular weapon. Between missions, it is also possible to purchase better gear for the soldiers, such as gas masks.

The game is set in 1915. Professor Brightmeer of the Miskatonic University has been sent to the front lines by British intelligence to counter the actions of the Cult of the Awakened, a German secret society trying to win the war by summoning the creatures of the Cthulhu Mythos. It's up to Brightmeer and the British soldiers to risk their lives and sanity in order to stop the Cult from unleashing these evil forces.
