Zeboyd Games, developer of much recommended parody RPG Breath of Death VII: The Beginning (which ended up selling over 40,000 copies), announced the release of another retro-styled title, Cthulhu Saves the World, to Xbox Live Indie Games today. The studio calls it "an epic 6-10 hour journey of redemption, romance, and insanity".

In Cthulhu Saves the World, players take on the role of H. P. Lovecraft's tentacled creature: "Cthuhu 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!"

The 16-bit-esque turn-based RPG features 720p visuals, comic book-style cutscenes an insanity system that lets you "inflict insanity on your opponents for fun and profit", three difficulty levels,  seven playable creatures (over 20 "multi-character unite techniques), three bonus modes, and more.

Cthulhu Saves the World is one of more than a dozen games featured in the Indie Games Winter Uprising, a promotion for quality Xbox Live Indie Games that recently received a spotlightfrom Xbox Dashboard!
