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.

Wonderkarpwhich is interesting cause this the first one 100% made by 2k games after the THQ buy11/23/2014 - 4:17pm
Wonderkarpbleh. the more I play WWE 2k15 on PS4, the more I get disappointed.11/23/2014 - 4:09pm
Neo_DrKefkaIt happened around 1030 this morning. I was not blooding because blood was on my hands11/23/2014 - 3:50pm
Andrew EisenThat depends on a lot. Were you bleeding at the time you requested to leave or did you want to leave work to go to the doctor over an incident that happened on a different day that you didn't file an incident report for?11/23/2014 - 3:21pm
Neo_DrKefkaThat would be a major OSHA violation correct?11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
Neo_DrKefkaOff topic but I was at work and went over to the first aid kit to get some eye drops. I look at my hand and noticed blood on my hands. My employers said their is no incident report and they won't send me to see a doctor and that I am abandoning my job.11/23/2014 - 1:54pm
MaskedPixelanteThe more I hear about AC Unity being rushed out, the more I think Ubisoft was telling the truth about why they couldn't add female co-op models.11/23/2014 - 1:14pm
IanCI wouldnt say the 360/PS3 version were superior. They were different games.11/23/2014 - 11:49am
MechaTama31It's hard to rank my top 5 against eachother, but they would include Ghostbusters, Back to the Future (all of it), Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Shawshank Redemption, and The Princess Bride.11/23/2014 - 11:09am
Andrew EisenTrue, but I liked the fact that rather than do a crappy looking version of the PS3/360 version, it went with an art style more suited to the Wii's strengths.11/23/2014 - 12:26am
Wonderkarpif I had the money, I'd buy one of those expensive proton pack replicas11/22/2014 - 11:25pm
Wonderkarpthats the wii version though. the PS3/360 version is far superior.11/22/2014 - 11:19pm
Andrew EisenOdd that there was no hose connecting the thrower to the backpack. Was there just no more horsepower left in the Wii to animate it? And did seriously no one on the dev or QA team notice the Ghostbusters patch on the player's sleeve was backwards?11/22/2014 - 11:17pm
