Cthulhu Saves the World Developer Wants Your Support for Port

January 19, 2011 -

Indie developer Zeboyd wants your help in bringing its groovy Xbox Live Indie game, Cthulhu Saves the World, to the PC. Zeboyd has set up this Kickstart.com page asking for donations to port the game to the PC. Zeboyd also wants to enhance the original XBIG release with a special mode that did not make it into the final game. From the Kickstarter page:

"Unfortunately, we had to cut a few features that were originally intended for the game due to a lack of funds and time. The most prominent of these features is the special remix mode – Cthulhu’s Angels. In this mode, Cthulhu is too lazy to be a hero himself so he talks a group of talented women into doing his heroic deeds for him. New dialogue, new monsters, new songs, a new playable character, and a new dungeon are some of the additions this mode will contain.

We are currently trying to raise funds so that we can add this new mode back into the game and so that we can port the game to the PC so that people without an XBox 360 can enjoy the game. Although we have set $3000 as the bare minimum to accomplish this project, the more funds we receive, the more features we can add and the faster we can release the new versions. Note, that although our focus will be on creating the new PC version of the game, the new content will be added to both the PC version and the existing XBox 360 version.
"

For those willing to fund this project Zeboyd is offering a number of rewards at different price points:

PLEDGE $10 OR MORE: MP3 files of three special chiptune remixes of songs from the game (Battle, Town, and Heroine themes).

PLEDGE $25 OR MORE: Special thanks credit in the game. Plus all previous rewards.

PLEDGE $50 OR MORE: World map image file and spreadsheet file with all character LV-Up choices. Plus all previous rewards

PLEDGE $100 OR MORE: (LIMITED REWARD) Signed poster with Cthulhu Saves the World art from the original artist. Plus all previous rewards.

PLEDGE $250 OR MORE: (LIMITED REWARD) Special Cthulhu Saves the World tiny Cthulhu from http://cthulhuchick.com/ - plus all previous rewards.

PLEDGE $500 OR MORE: A new Cthulhu Saves the World short story written by the game writer. Plus all previous rewards.

PLEDGE $750 OR MORE: (LIMITED REWARD) Send a photo and your name and we'll put you in the game as a townsperson. Plus all previous rewards.

So far (as of this writing) Zeboyd Games has $2,945 in pledged funding, 56 backers and 28 days left to go to meet its $3,000 goal. I think they will make it. The limited rewards are almost gone, so if you want in on supporting this project, visit Zeboyd's Kickstarter page now.

Matthew WilsonI doubt yahoo has the resources to pull it off, and I not just talking about money.07/24/2014 - 6:15pm
SleakerI wouldn't have minded a Yahoo purchase, probably would have been a better deal than Tumblr seeing as they paid the same for it...07/24/2014 - 6:13pm
MaskedPixelanteIt's the golden age of Hitbox, I guess.07/24/2014 - 6:08pm
Matthew Wilsonagain twitch was going to get bought. It was just who was going to buy it . Twitch was not even being able to handle the demand, so hey needed a company with allot of infrastructure to help them. I can understand why you would not want Google to buy it .07/24/2014 - 5:49pm
Andrew Eisen"Google is better than MS or Amazon" Wow. Google, as I mentioned earlier, progressively makes almost everything worse and yet there are still two lesser options. Again, wow!07/24/2014 - 5:43pm
Andrew EisenI don't know. MS, in my experience, is about 50/50 on its products. It's either fine or it's unusable crap. Amazon, well... I've never had a problem buying anything from them but I don't use any of their products or services so I couldn't really say.07/24/2014 - 5:42pm

Sleaker@AE - I've never seen youtube as a great portal to interact with people from a comment perspective. like ever. The whole interface doesn't really promote that.07/24/2014 - 5:28pm
Andrew EisenNor I. From a content producer's perspective, almost every change Google implements makes the service more cumbersome to use. It's why I set up a Facebook fan page in the first place; it was becoming too difficult to connect with my viewers on YouTube.07/24/2014 - 4:50pm
Sleakerwonder if anyone is going to try and compete with google, I'm not a huge fan of the way they manage their video services.07/24/2014 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenIt happened. Google bought Twitch. http://venturebeat.com/2014/07/24/googles-1b-purchase-of-twitch-confirmed-joins-youtube-for-new-video-empire/07/24/2014 - 4:28pm
MaskedPixelanteI hope Nintendo actually follows through with the DS Virtual Console, that sounds like it could be cool.07/24/2014 - 2:15pm
james_fudgePeople don't deny it persay, they bristle at the idea that it's a "problem" that nneds to be "fixed."07/24/2014 - 2:15pm
Papa MidnightRacism and Misogny are heavily prevalent in the gaming and online arena. Getting people to actually admit that, however...07/24/2014 - 11:42am
Papa MidnightThat very thing is somthing that anyone who has been subjected to racial-based targeting online could actually state that they've experienced.07/24/2014 - 11:41am
Papa MidnightPerfect example: "I have yet to talk to a man who has had to call a police officer due to a stalker, only to be told nothing can be done until they are physically assaulted."07/24/2014 - 11:40am
Papa MidnightNot that said communities are mutually exclusive. Even the very first comment on that last article equates women in the gaming industry with being the n-word. Despicable, aetestable, and (sadly enough) this is not an uncommon presence in either community.07/24/2014 - 11:35am
Papa MidnightI only wish someone would lead a similar investigation of the sheer level of irrational racially motivated hate and insults that are perpetuated in the online and gaming community.07/24/2014 - 11:33am

SleakerAhh.. I have a feeling it's because they wanted to put up their own games on their own store.07/24/2014 - 10:56am
