Cthulhu Saves the World celebrates 1-year anniversary with new platforms and price drop on Xbox Live Indie Games version.

In celebration of the game’s one year anniversary on Xbox Live Indie Games and in light of recent improvements made to the Xbox Live Indie Games service, Zeboyd Games is proud to announce a permanent price drop for Cthulhu Saves the World for the Xbox Live Indie Games service to 80 MS points ($1 USD) effective today, January 4th, 2011.

Cthulhu Saves the World was originally released on Xbox Live Indie Games on December 30th, 2010. It was later ported to the PC on July 13th, 2011. Since its release, Cthulhu Saves the World has sold over 150,000 copies and has garned critical acclaim from multiple gaming sites including IGN, RPGamer, Gamesradar, Joystiq, RPGFan, Eurogamer, and others.

With Cthulhu Saves the World’s new low price, complete and utter insanity has never been so easy to obtain!

Zeboyd Games is also pleased to announce a partnership with Tinkerhouse Games to bring Cthulhu Saves the World to a variety of new platforms in early 2012 including the iPhone, iPad, Android, and Mac. More details to follow in the coming weeks.

“It still boggles my mind that a random thought of mine while I was waiting for an appointment one day – hey, wouldn’t it be funny if Cthulhu was a hero in a Japanese-style RPG – is now an actual game that people are playing and enjoying. With this new price drop on XBLIG and the game coming to new platforms later this year, I hope even more people will be able to experience the weird adventures of Cthulhu, his own personal fangirl Umi, and the rest.”

  1. Whoa, now I really gotta review this thing.

    I’m REALLY glad you’ve made quite a fair amount of revenue on this game. I’ll try and drive it up another couple of hundred sales. If only all the people that watched the video actually bought the game, then it’d be like 10,000 sales. Oh well, anything to help out as these games are flippin awesome.

  2. I paid the full price on xbla and then again on steam. I hope a lot more people play it; its a great game.

  3. Nice! More Sales for you guys! Though I think $3 was worth buying this game, I mean c’mon xbox gamers 240 MS points isn’t that much compared to your 1200 XBLA games! (Correct me if I got the price wrong :P) Heck, I would even pay $5 for it! Thats good I did for the PC with the Bundle.

  4. If you are getting as mac port, why not go all the way and do a GNU/Linux port? The effort is essentially the same, you only compile a different binary in the end.

  5. Congrats guys! The game is seriously great! Hope you guys get many more sales! Could the game be ported to the PS3?
