We are pleased to announce that Zeboyd Games has already made more revenue in less than a week on Steam than we have in over a year and a half on the XBox Live Indie Games service.

Thank you again to everyone who has made this huge success possible!

  1. Love the game.. I’m an oldskool gamer.. this brings back so many memories.. back with zelda and zelda 3.. 🙂 good job guys :).. really.. well done.. amazing product.. and yeah.. dont bother with XBLA in the future.. release them here on the PC.. you’ll invite the older generation that remembers these products :).. thanks again.. anyways.. back to the game 🙂

  2. Demo-ed the game on the xbox, but since i’m a fan of the pc i found it on steam and was like “Yoink”… so yeah… Breath of death VII is amusing and i love reminiscing the old days of RPGs…

  3. Just learned the Cthulhu game existed from this week’s BFF Report; the idea of having some control over random encounters while not fully elliminating them appealed to me enough to buy it off Steam. I’m loving the game so far.

  4. Even though I’m more of a Ultima, Might and Magic, Fallout and Baldur’s Gate cRPG gamer, I’m really enjoying Cthulhu Saves the World.

    It captures everything well: the Cthulhu mythos, the classic jRPG gameplay with a very creative and unique battle system, the sense of humour, the memorable soundtrack, the beautiful pixel art.

    I recommend it!

  5. Keep making games please!!! A Final Fantasy 6(US FF3) style game with your humor would be epic. Cthulhu was such a breath of fresh air.

  6. Same with me. Saw the games on XBLA and thought to myself “I’ll pass…” but again, saw them on steam for an AMAZINGLY cheap price. (£2 for both) Play Cthulhu and for the first time in SUCH a long time I actually enjoyed playing an RPG. Too many games have gone for looks over style and gameplay, just look at Final Fantasy. Dead series in my eyes. I thought it was gonna end by now and I’m STILL playing it, seems to be a lot more content to these games than I thought (Deceptive price)

    The ONLY criticism I have is Side quests. I dunno about anyone else when i say this but things like the “Weapons” in the FF series, Bosses harder than the Final boss, The underwater research facility in FF8, awesome little distractions that just make it feel more interesting.

    I know part of the magic of these games was the comedy part, and yes it certainly amused me several times and put a silly grin on my face BUT… If you guys can make a serious RPG with a BIT of comedy (Screw the graphics it’s ALL about the gameplay and story) and a compelling set of characters you could seriously be the saviors of the RPG genre because to me this is what RPGs should be.

    But yeah I could talk for hours about how much I respect what you’ve done for real RPGers around the world, I only mourn for the people who havn’t played these games cause they’re missing out on a real treat.

    I wait patiently for your next release and only hope that you eventually get the credit you deserve because there’s something compelling about a trip down memory lane with a whole new game… Yeah it sounds odd but to clarify, it’s like playing a 10/10 8 bit rpg all over again with a new story and I loved every second of it.

  7. The reason it sold better on the PC was because it actually got major coverage. I’m sure there has been a spike of XBLA sales since the PC release and the GiantBomb article as well. I know I didn’t buy it on XBLA until then.

    I agree that they should try to ship on the PC/Mac as close to the Xbox as possible, because the computer crowd are more into that stuff in general.

    Great games btw.

  8. I heard about BOD7 through RPGamer and immediately went out on my Xbox 360 to get it. When I saw it on Steam, I snagged both games. I love your work, and I love supporting devs like you. Great Work!

  9. Congrats guys im so pleased for you all.

    Are you able to use XNA for Steam Games?

  10. I bought for a second time on Steam and had a lot of my friends purchase it as well. I hope this makes another game possible!

  11. Don’t forget about the PC gamer community for future releases, they are the most loyal and dedicated. Congratulations on your success and don’t let the red ring crew keep you down.

  12. i’ll be honest, i skipped it when i saw it on XBLIG, because there’s so much crapware on there with such an unreliable ratings system i wasn’t sure if it was actually good or not. i saw the titles on steam, the price, then the reviews. then the trailers had me hook, line, and sinker. i’m so glad i didn’t skip it entirely, and i’m EXTREMELY happy you guys love the games and the genre so much you’ve ADDED content. i’ve seen less efforts from $60 titles. PLEASE keep it up, i can’t wait for the next release!
