About This Game

You are Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, Shub-Niggurath, or Yog-Sothoth.

And now the Great Ones that You didn't pick are going to try to kill You.

But You, Greatest One, will destroy them first. In Cthulhu's Catharsis: a Lovecraftian Turn-Based Strategy God-game.


It's like Risk meets Civilization, garnished with Hearthstone-style units and steeped in the Cthulhu mythos.

That's it. That's the video game.



  • Play as one of four eldritch horrors: Cthulhu, Nyarlathotep, Shub-Niggurath, or Yog-Sothoth.
  • Mutate Your units with special powers in order to gain a tactical edge on the other Gods.
  • Take out your paintbrush and unleash Cthulhu van Gogh--You have the ability to draw Your own lands out of nothing.
  • Explode nations through Your sheer, raw Power. They do not return.
  • Force shoggoth slaves to build horrible structures and even more horrible units.
  • Explore a research tree that unlocks new eldritch abilities. And the best part, You progress through the research tree by sacrificing Your poor, dirty humans.
  • Unleash powerful magick through the Focus tree, which changes dynamically based on Your chosen deity.
  • Because of all the horrible screaming You cause, elder monstrosities like Father Dagon and Mother Hydra will awake and invade this world. Appease them, and they can do great, terrible things. Anger them, and their wrath will be sizable, but puny.
  • Play singleplayer and test Your wits against the chaotic AI!
  • Or, play online with/against Your friends and enemies, by hosting a game and letting them join in!
