Cthulhu Saves the World

Old sprites never die, they just fade away and/or move inside indie games. Penny Arcade Adventures 3 - or, Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 - is full of old, not-dead sprites. The game is a nostalgic throwback to early 90s RPGs made by Cthulhu Saves the World developers Zeboyd Games with writing and assistance from the Penny Arcade chaps.

It was also released yesterday and is a crazy slim £3 / $5 on Steam. The latest trailer for PA's OTRSPOD3 is below, featuring battling hobos, snapping crabomancers, and self-mocking descriptive text.

Penny Arcade's Tycho and Gabe had previously said they wouldn't make another game, after the experience of making the first two Penny Arcade Adventures with developers Hothead Games was so time-consuming and exhausting. Zeboyd convinced them to try again though, and I'd imagine the simplified style is helping them manage the workload.

Nostalgia! Profitable and efficient?

We'll have a review soon.

Breath of Death VII
Cthulhu Saves The World
Here's some heartening news for a Wednesday afternoon. Developers Zeboyd recently decided to launch their comedy fantasy RPGs on PC after a long time spent trying to sell on Xbox Live Arcade. Now RPS have news that Cthulhu Saves the World and the superbly named Breath of Death VII have made more in less than a week on Steam than they did in more than a year on Xbox Live, a fact the devs proudly announced on their site.

Zeboyd's games are affectionate parodies of 16-bit era JRPGs. Cthulhu Saves the World casts you in the role of the Lovecraftian beast on a quest to break free of a sorcerer's curse. In order to consume the world, Cthulhu must first save it. "Romance" and "redemption" are promised. Breath of Death VII teams you up with a ghost historian and a vampire techie to uncover the secrets of the past. Kind of like Time Team, but with more turn based combat. Both are currently on sale at 10% off on Steam and Gamersgate.
Breath of Death VII - Valve
Cthulhu Saves the World & Breath of Death VII Double Pack is Now Available and 10% off until July 20th 10AM PST.

The lord of insanity, Cthulhu was all set to plunge the world into insanity and destruction when his powers were sealed by a mysterious sorcerer. The only way for him to break the curse is to become a true hero. Save the world to destroy it in an epic parody RPG journey of redemption, romance, and insanity!

Resurrect the classic era of RPGs with the retro parody RPG, Breath of Death VII: The Beginning. Join Dem the Skeleton Knight, Sara the ghost historian, Lita the vampire techie, and Erik the zombie prince as they explore an undead world in search of the secrets of the past. Laugh! Cry! Laugh some more!
