Guardian Of The Galaxy: Zeboyd’s Cosmic Star Heroine

By Alec Meer on June 27th, 2013.

Zeboyd played guit-ah-arrrrrr

The story of Zeboyd is a strange one, but perhaps a slightly familiar one. Creating a bit of buzz around their Lovecraftian RPG Cthulhu Saves The World on Xbox, only to find that to be a cold and uncaring land, things were a lot rosier for the subsequent PC release. That in turn led to the opportunity to tackle a new game for the even-tempered and all-embracing fellows over on Penny Arcade, which in turn led to a sequel, and now they’re at the point where the announcement of their new game creates headlines. As well as having a most excellent title, Cosmic Star Heroine will include “turn-based RPG gameplay that takes the best elements from our past games while adding a few new ideas.”

The Games Of Christmas ’11: Day Seven

By John Walker on December 7th, 2011.

We’re a week in! A week closer to the Horacetide celebrations, as children across the world excitedly await the arrival of Horace snaking down their chimneys, devouring the milk and deer carcass left on the fireplace, and leaving his “present” on their living room carpet. To cope with the tension, we recommend you continue reading our in-no-particular-order-apart-from-the-last-one collection of the 24 best games of the year.

Indie Royale 3: Eufloria, Cthulhu, Runespell

By Alec Meer on November 29th, 2011.

I still haven't played this because I AM A BAD PERSON

Too many indie sales! THERE ARE TOO MANY INDIE SALES. Some of us poor PC journalists need to have dinner you know, but noooooo, here comes another announcement about bargain-priced electronic entertainments of most excellent quality. Back to the internet with you, Meer! This time around, the good tidings of money-saving are the third Indie Royale collection, aka The Really Big Bundle, and it’s a bit of a cracker.

Zeboyd Are On the Rain-Slick Precipice

By Jim Rossignol on August 31st, 2011.

Nothing compared to SPONG IN A POSTY
So here’s a bit of unexpected news. It comes out of leftfield for us to learn that Penny Arcade’s Penny Arcade Adventures episodes are to get a third and final episode – since it was abandoned by Hothead to work on Deathspank – but it’s even more surprising to learn that Zeboyd (they of lo-fi RPG treat Cthulhu Saves the World) are making it. Really? Apparently so. Zeboyd say: “Zeboyd Games is pleased to announce that we are currently working on Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rainslick Precipice of Darkness Episode 3. Yes, we’re serious.”

Expect something 16-bitlike, by the looks of it.

Zeboyd PC Sales Leave XBLIG In The Dust

By John Walker on July 20th, 2011.

If you knew how tired I am, you'd understand why I can't be bothered working out a cheerleader joke.

You may remember that last week we suggested Zeboyd’s launch of their RPGs on Steam had gone a lot better than expected. It turns out that was something of an under-estimation.

In less than a week on Steam, Zeboyd’s Cthulhu Saves The World (see our review here) and Breath Of Death VII have already made more than they did in over a year on Xbox Live Indie Games. Let me repeat that: More in under a week on PC than in over a year on Xbox.

Wot I Think: Cthulhu Saves The World

By John Walker on July 13th, 2011.

Modesty.

No matter what I write about Zeboyd‘s Cthulhu Saves The World, even if I were about to launch into a scathing attack on the RPG, it still wouldn’t be able to combat the price. This game costs $3/£2. Except, actually, for that price you get two games, the other being Breath of Death VII: The Beginning. And both are RPGs. Big, detailed RPGs. Price doesn’t affect quality, but when it’s less than the price of a bottle of water for two full length games, it’s a competitive factor. So, despite the fact it barely matters at that price, here’s Wot I Think of Cthulhu Saves The World.
