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.

ZippyDSMleeIn't the adventure map just regurtiated content in diffrent sqaures?09/30/2014 - 12:24pm
MaskedPixelanteThe phasing out of the iPad 2 begins. Pokemon TCG Online REQUIRES an iPad with a retina display to run.09/30/2014 - 12:05pm
Andrew EisenIf you can't get enough of Hyrule Warriors' gameplay, yeah, it's looking like a pretty good deal.09/30/2014 - 12:03pm
E. Zachary KnightSo a Tetris movie is happening. Here is the link. Reads like a joke: http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2014/09/30/tetris-movie/09/30/2014 - 11:47am
E. Zachary KnightSo is it worth getting the Season Pass?09/30/2014 - 11:45am
Andrew EisenWow. The Hyrule Warriors DLC is more extensive than I thought. The new scenario in the first pack is a full five levels and the new Adventure Map is a whole new map, all 128 squares. Yowza!09/30/2014 - 11:08am
Andrew EisenI'm most pleased that the Quick Start Menu will now launch when the Wii U is powered on from the TV Gamepad TV Remote. I felt that was a huge oversight and I'm glad it's been corrected.09/30/2014 - 11:06am
MaskedPixelanteHey look, Nintendo figured out folders on the Wii U. I mean, yeah, they figured out folders on the 3DS several years ago, but these are BETTER! These... uhh... actually display the full folder name on the home screen instead of just the first letter...09/30/2014 - 9:19am
Technogeek(Yeah, it's not game related, but my brother is a car nerd and loves to bring this up whenever there's an excuse to laugh at CNN.)09/30/2014 - 8:48am
TechnogeekDid someone say "actual knowledge ruins the news"? http://jalopnik.com/how-much-can-cnn-get-wrong-about-f1-engines-physics-in-111142340509/30/2014 - 8:47am
NeenekoHeh. PoliSci tends to ruin the news. Kinda like how being a gamer tends to ruin mainstream game stories, any actual knowledge in a field highlights how poorly it is reported.09/30/2014 - 8:30am
MechaTama31Heh. I don't think you need a master's in politics to see that... ;)09/30/2014 - 7:32am
Matthew WilsonTrust me i read the same sites.I have a Master's in Applied Politics. I get to see through the spin both Left and Right that tend to be put on news stories.09/30/2014 - 1:02am
WymorenceI also have an extremely hard time in listening to people who froth at the mouth when the POTUS does something almost identical to the previous POTUS, but for some reason is subhuman for it this time around09/30/2014 - 12:43am
WymorenceThe problem is that opposing views are a good thing, but sites like Brietbart and their ilk are the exact opposite. 9/10 times they tweak the news to benefit their own views instead of just giving their own side of it.09/30/2014 - 12:41am
james_fudgeIf I were in a cult I might try and shut myself away from opposing views...09/29/2014 - 11:48pm
james_fudgeoh and Nate Silver and Politico too.09/29/2014 - 11:48pm
james_fudgeI read a lot of sites every day, Drudge, Breitbart, Huffpo, DailKOS, Red State, Fox, MSNBC, CNN and i'm not infected. Time for people to get thicker skins.09/29/2014 - 11:46pm
james_fudgeNeo_DrKefka: you do know you visited "one of those sites" when you posted that article, right?09/29/2014 - 11:44pm
E. Zachary KnightOcarina of Time done up in the Link to the Past engine? You know I would buy this day one if it were official. http://kotaku.com/fans-are-remaking-ocarina-of-time-in-2d-164059481909/29/2014 - 11:14pm
