Developer: Zeboyd Games
Last year, Zeboyd Games' Robert Boyd put himself on the map with Breath Of Death VII: an award-winning Xbox Live Indie game that paid respectful homage to classic 8-Bit RPGs even as it gleefully parodied their weaknesses. This was soon followed by Cthulhu Saves The World, which pumped up every aspect of the storytelling, combat and exploration. The key to their success and critical reception was that they weren't just shallow parodies, rather, they were exceptional RPGs in their own right that actually equalled the games upon which they're based. Or dare I say, they surpassed.
Put simply, the Xbox Live Indie Scene just wasn't big enough for these two titles... so after months of tweaking, scheming and coding, Boyd has managed to bundle them both together with loads of new content for less than two pounds. Or to use its official title, the 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!).
That's quite a mouthful... and luckily, it's absolutely delicious. Here's why you should buy it.Cthulhiu Fhtagn!
