It seems like retro-RPG Cthulhu Saves the World is finally making its way to platforms other than the PC. Developed by Zeboyd, the title was originally released on December 30, 2010 on Xbox Live and then on July 13, 2011 for the PC. In fact, the latter was an enhanced edition that was funded through Kickstarter and its full name is “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!)” This version of the game is currently available on the PC (through Steam) and on XBLA.
But it seems like more people will be able to enjoy this refreshingly unique 16-bit role-playing game as Cthulhu Saves the World is coming to Mac, iOS and Android on Thursday, June 28, 2012. All versions of the game will be available for $1.99 ($1 cheaper than the Steam version and $1 more expensive than the original XBLIG Jam.) The satirical story makes reference to Lovecraft and borrows some elements from classic Final Fantasy games, but some modern tweaks make the game quite accessible to newcomers. Those who have played the original version of the game say that it should adapt well to touch controls and it’s nice to hear that, as it’s usually great to play this type of classic RPG- style titles on the go.
