Here’s your chance to help a game get made! Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure is on Kickstarter right now! Thanks to Liviu Boar for the information regarding Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure!
Gibbous – A Cthulhu Adventure is a tongue-in-cheek point and click adventure game in development that takes a lighthearted look at the Cthulhu mythos and the adventure game genre in general. Traditionally animated and with 2D painted backgrounds as well as comprehensive voice acting it seeks to hark back to the days of classic adventure games made by LucasArts and similar companies. The main character Buzz has ended up with the Necromonicon against his wishes and on top of that has accidentally cursed his pet, the result being it can now talk. Neither find this situation agreeable and so they set out to remove the curse on Buzz’s cat and try to get the dreaded tome to the person who was searching for it in the first place. Now, if only he hadn’t been kidnapped…
We’re finally in the presence of someone who can solve our problem with this pesky tome of ultimate mythos evil. Surely they’ll have no problem uncursing our cat while holding onto the book safely so we can focus on finding the person who was kidnapped searching for it.
…Of course if that was what happened this would be a very short demo, let alone a complete game. Therefore something’s bound to go wrong.
