Game release: “Cthulhu Saves Christmas” (PC)

Christmas is almost here, and Zeboyd Digital Entertainment LLC’s RPG Cthulhu Saves Christmas is already here.

It’s that time of the year when one tries to find any games that have snow and maybe a bit of a Christmas theme. Having both and combining it with an H.P. Lovecraft backdrop is certainly a winner. The story is about Cthulhu who has lost his powers and the only way to have them back is to save Santa Claus from the League of Christmas Evil. He/It isn’t alone, though, as the illustrious cast of weird characters like the Snow Maiden, Baba Yaga-chan, and Belsnickel join the quest.

Anyone who’s played Cthulhu Saves the World from 2011 will know what to expect gameplay-wise, as it still looks and plays like a classic 16-bit pixel art RPG from the 90ies, involving turn-based combat that is more varied due to Cthulhu’s powers of insanity. There are also some life sim segments that carry the Christmas spirit by giving players the opportunity to build relationships with friends and enemies. It’s all rather silly, but as the original game was lots of fun with its tongue-in-cheek humor, this doesn’t come as a surprise. Being able to fight the Krampus should be a good reason to buy the game which might be a new classic to play on Christmas Eve.

The game is out now on PC with a 10% launch discount, with the soundtrack sold separately. If one buys the game before January 2, 2 PM UTC, one will also receive the RPG Cosmic Star Heroine for free.
