Introduction



I'd mentioned it before, but just in case you weren't in on the last thread, I'm immediately following my Let's Play of Breath of Death VII: The Beginning with the following game from Zeboyd Games, the spiritual sequel, Cthulhu Saves The World. I'm going to need a Lovecraft nerd on this one, since I'm pretty sure I won't be able to learn/remember all the various Lovecraft mythos that are going to be referenced here. It's going to be a hell of a lot of them, too, and I can probably spot the major ones, but for the minor and obscure, I'm going to be goddamned clueless.

Anywho, with that said, welcome! Released in the ass-end of 2010 (December 30th, to be exact), on Xbox Live, Cthulhu Saves The World is Zeboyd Games second game. It has an enhanced version of the combat system that was used in Breath of Death VII, as well as better portraits, writing, backgrounds, maps, characters, combat--It's better in every way. I do not mean that as a generalization; Cthulhu Saves The World is an improvement in an absolutely literal sense. They had another guy helping them out with this one, Bill Stiernberg, so maybe he kicked the shit out of the other writer and did the good work here. I dunno, but maybe I should try and ask him one of these days.

In February of 2011, they held a Kickstarter to create and release an enhanced version for the PC and Xbox, which includes extra game modes, along with other things. We'll be going through the PC version here; it was released in July of 2011, along with BoD, and it was November of that year when they were released in the combo pack available today. This LP is going to run a bit like my BoDVII LP, but it'll take a bit longer. I'll be doing one of the bonus modes, Cthulhu's Angels, as well, but enough of that, let's get crazy.

Spoiler Policy

Don't spoil shit. Just don't do it. It's not cool. Especially since this game deserves to remain unspoiled, whereas it didn't matter in Breath of Death VII. And don't even try that cute shit where you tease at potential spoilers.

If you're interested in that sort of thing, I announce when I update on Twitter. I don't tweet many other things, so don't expect a lot of bullshit.


Something Else To Shut The Fuck Up About


H.P. Lovecraft was a racist guy. There, it's been said. Now don't bring that shit up in my thread. We're not here for that sort of thing.

Holy Fuck, This Is Awesome

Just wanted to give my two cents for you doing a great job with this LP and showing off this underrated indie game before this thread gets closed. Mainly in the form of fanart, of course.

This hastily sketched one is in response to your remark about Cthulhu's awesomeness not being contained by a shirt:



Is Cthulhu plain embarrassed or is the shirt too small? You decide!

And this one, well, what if Azathoth got cursed into a lesser humanoid form like Cthulhu and tried to duke things out with him the old-fashioned way?



Spoilers: Azathoth still sucks.
