Cthulhu Saves the World Joins LIVE Indie Games Uprising

Famous sci-fi/horror villain Cthulhu has a change of heart in the new indie RPG from Breath of Death creators Zeboyd Games.
Cthuhu was all set to plunge the world into insanity and destruction when his powers were sealed by a mysterious sorcerer. The only way for him to break the curse is to become a true hero. Save the world to destroy it!
Sounds like fun. BoD has actually accumulated quite a bit of positive press in the time since it was released and Zeboyd seems to have a firm grasp on how to make a classic console flavored Role Player- add to that the fact that Cthulhu is only 240mspts (that's $3 for everyone in the real world) and you've got a nice little prospect here.

Features and more from the presser after the jump-

  • An epic 6-10 hour journey of redemption, romance, and insanity!
  • Classic 16-bit turn-based RPG style combined with the best of modern game design!
  • 720p! Parallax scrolling! Backgrounds! Comic book style cutscenes!
  • A unique insanity system lets you inflict insanity on your opponents for fun and profit!
  • More accessible than ever before! 3 difficulty levels (Easy, Normal, Hard)! Save wherever you like! Collect 1-Ups to retry failed battles!
  • Over 20 awesome songs!
  • 7 playable characters! Over 20 multi-character unite techniques!
  • 3 bonus game modes for increased replay value!
  • All of the great features players know and love from Breath of Death
  • VII: The Beginning have returned – fast-paced gameplay, combo system, random encounter limits, branching LV-Ups, and more!
"Our previous RPG, Breath of Death VII: The Beginning, has been very successful with over 40,000 copies sold, a LTD trial to purchase conversion rate of over 66.6%, and high user ratings (4.5/5 stars on the US marketplace)," says Zeboyd Games founder, Robert Boyd. "With big improvements in every area, we expect Cthulhu Saves the World will become an even bigger success."

Cthulhu Saves the World will be available early morning on December 30th for 240 Microsoft Points ($3 USD) in all countries where XBox Live Indie Games are supported.

Cthulhu Saves the World is a proud member of the Indie Games Winter Uprising. For more information, check out the official website at
