Modiphius Entertainment is pleased to announce a licensing deal with Devil Pig Games for the Shadow's Over Normandie boardgame and a series of expansions based on Modiphius' terrifying World War Two universe, Achtung! Cthulhu.

Heroes of Normandie has been a hit tactical World War 2 boardgame release selling over 5000 copies in it's first printing. You can see an excellent review of Heroes of Normandie by Tom Vasel here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWS7stQnO_8
Although development and production on Shadows Over Normandie is proceeding as planned, Devil Pig Games are taking the project to Kickstarter to extend the print run and give fans a chance to pick up some amazing new expansions for the standard Heroes of Normandie game as well as to fund box upgrades to include, free for all backers, in the Shadows Over Normandie boxed set plus additional campaign sets introducing more of the Achtung! Cthulhu forces, villains and heroes. Yes that's right, backers of the original Heroes of Normandie Kickstarter who selected the Shadows over Normandie set will get the box update free of charge!

Carter of the U.S Rangers, with the help of French resistance agent Ariane Dubois and her fearsome companion must fight a force of Deep Ones and the Nazi Cult of the Black Sun before they unleash a terrible evil upon the Allied forces.
