Reviews

“So when I say Cthulhu Saves The World is already one of my favourite games of 2011 you can be sure I've not been swayed by its astonishingly precise pastiche of early 1990s JRPG cliches, strident synth music, chunky menus and all. It's simply a really clever, hugely enjoyable game, and it's as much honest tribute as cheeky spoof.”
Eurogamer
“It's rare to find a game that is both entertaining and genuinely funny, and so far Cthulhu Saves the World is both.”
