Sandy Petersen Guest of Honor at HP Lovecraft Film Festival

The special Guest of Honor for the Portland H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival & CthulhuCon, game designer and creator of the Call of Cthulhu RPG, is Sandy Petersen! Come meet the man who put Lovecraft center stage of the gaming world, May 3-5 at the Hollywood Theatre.

Primarily interested by the first-person shooter Wolfenstein 3D, Petersen joined id Software about 10 weeks before the December 1993 release of Doom and in that time created 19 levels for it (of which 8 were based to some extent on early drafts by Tom Hall). He later created 17 of the levels for Doom II, and 7 levels for Quake. His Lovecraftian influences also resulted in some changes to the monster designs for these games. He left id Software for Ensemble Studios in June 1997.

That would actually be pretty cool! I believe I've written everything Lovecraft ever wrote, and am a huge fan of game like Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth and Amnesia.
