Cthulhu is evil, right? Right. There’s no denying the villain status of H. P. Lovecraft’s creation. That said, he did kinda save the world in 2011’s Cthulhu Saves the World, so… Cthulhu Saves Christmas is hardly the craziest thing to have happened in 2019, video game or otherwise.
Much akin to that of Cthulhu Saves the World, this tale also begins with the master of insanity losing his powers. Really gotta start doing a better job of managing that stuff, even if it does mean we now have a brand new adventure starring everyone’s favorite Great Old One. One in which he’s on a mission to rescue Santa Claus from the League of Christmas Evil. Oh, and it’s a prequel to Cthulhu Saves the World. Now we just need a sequel too, and we’re all set.
So, combat? Turn-based. The Snow Maiden, Baba Yaga-chan, Belsnickel? Check, check, and check! Ah, how about some… wait, R’lyehtionship building? Life sim elements? TENTACLES?! Oh my. Sounds like there’s a case of insanification going around, and heck, I totally approve. The more nonsensical this gets, the more fun it will surely turn out if Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII are any indications. Speaking of insanifying -- that’s totally a thing you can do to enemies. Very groovy. Now go help make sure Cthulhu Saves Christmas!
Note: Until January 2nd, 6pm UT, Cthulhu Saves Christmas comes bundled with a free copy of Zeboyd Games’ Cosmic Star Heroine.
