Zeboyd Games is proud to announce the upcoming arrival of Cthulhu Saves the World: Super Hyper Enhanced Championship Edition Alpha Diamond DX Plus Alpha FES HD – Premium Enhanced Game of the Year Collector’s Edition (without Avatars!)
In 2010, Cthulhu stole our hearts and our sanity with the release of the retro parody RPG, Cthulhu Saves the World on the XBox Live Indie Games service. Now, in 2011, The Super Hyper Enhanced Championship Edition Alpha Diamond DX Plus Alpha FES HD – Premium Enhanced Game of the Year Collector’s Edition (without Avatars!) version of Cthulhu Saves the World – or CSTW:SHECEADDPAFH – PEGYCE (WA!) for short – will offer a number of exciting improvements over the original version including:
Cthulhu’s Angels game mode – Cthulhu is too lazy to save the world so he talks a bunch of beautiful women into saving it for him! Features new dialogue, new playable characters (Molly the Were-Zompire! Elonalina the generic healer! Dark Knight Umi! Low level October!), new music, new abilities, and much, much more!
Director’s Commentary mode – Specially marked commentary icons scattered throughout the game tell the inside story on how one of pop culture’s most popular cosmic monstrosities became an RPG hero for great justice!
Rebalanced Gameplay – Many abilities and monsters have been rebalanced for even silkier smooth RPG gameplay! Plus a new Insanity difficulty mode and new super-hard bonus dungeon have been added to challenge even the best players ability to grind out higher LVs (because they’re really not as skilled as they like to brag)!
Unlockable Character Bromides – Due to the frothing demand for sexy Cthulhu art!
More jokes – F’tghan!
An obscure hint to our next game – Hey, why aren’t we working on that now instead?
More options – Toggle the running button, then untoggle it! Endless fun!
Great value – All previously released paid DLC bundled for free (note, previously released paid DLC does not exist)
Longer credits – To thank all the froody guys and gals at Kickstarter who helped make this project a reality!
Celebrity cameos – Cthulhu, the dog of e from Xbox Live! Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade (the benefits of being a fundraising benefactor)!
Plus all of the great features already included in the original version of Cthulhu Saves the World!
Take a look at what the press are saying about Cthulhu Saves the World:
Eurogamer (8/10) – “At this price, you’d be a gibbering madman not to give it a go.”
Joystiq (Indie Gem) – “It’s rare to find a game that is both entertaining and genuinely funny, and so far Cthulhu Saves the World is both.”
RPGamer (4/5) – “Zeboyd has a knack for crafting fantastic, witty lines for all the game’s characters…”
RPGFan (87%) – “…most important of all, it’s a fun game to play.”
HonestGamers (8/10) – “Loyal Lovecraftians will enjoy things like battling Dagon in the eerie town of Innsmouth, while everyone else will appreciate fighting giant zombie whales in hidden caves. Mostly, though, you’ll just enjoy a clever, witty game.”
Gamesradar (9/10) – “Honestly? This is too good to be stuck in the 360 indie game store.”
IGN (Never reviewed the game) – “. . .”
