Developer Zeboyd Games put out the following press release on its webpage, which I’ll put after the jump seeing as the title really pretty much says what you need to know:
Cthulhu Saves the World celebrates 1-year anniversary with new platforms and price drop on Xbox Live Indie Games version.
In celebration of the game’s one year anniversary on Xbox Live Indie Games and in light of recent improvements made to the Xbox Live Indie Games service, Zeboyd Games is proud to announce a permanent price drop for Cthulhu Saves the World for the Xbox Live Indie Games service to 80 MS points ($1 USD) effective today, January 4th, 2011.
Cthulhu Saves the World was originally released on Xbox Live Indie Games on December 30th, 2010. It was later ported to the PC on July 13th, 2011. Since its release, Cthulhu Saves the World has sold over 150,000 copies and has garned critical acclaim from multiple gaming sites including IGN, RPGamer, Gamesradar, Joystiq, RPGFan, Eurogamer, and others.
With Cthulhu Saves the World’s new low price, complete and utter insanity has never been so easy to obtain!
Zeboyd Games is also pleased to announce a partnership with Tinkerhouse Games to bring Cthulhu Saves the World to a variety of new platforms in early 2012 including the iPhone, iPad, Android, and Mac. More details to follow in the coming weeks.
“It still boggles my mind that a random thought of mine while I was waiting for an appointment one day – hey, wouldn’t it be funny if Cthulhu was a hero in a Japanese-style RPG – is now an actual game that people are playing and enjoying. With this new price drop on XBLIG and the game coming to new platforms later this year, I hope even more people will be able to experience the weird adventures of Cthulhu, his own personal fangirl Umi, and the rest.”
I’ve never played Cthulhu Saves the World, but I enjoyed Breath of Death VII. I imagine this continues the “Dragon Quest, but fun” concept, right?
I cannot wait for the port, but I fear the words “partnership with Tinkerhouse Games.” I mean, Zeboyd Games is pretty obscure, but who the hell are these guys? Oh, they have a game for free in the App store right now? Hmm… perhaps I should go check it out.Tweet
