Zeboyd’s Cosmic Star Heroine Blasting Off In Summer

Zeboyd Games, the folks who redeemed one of the world's greatest monsters in Cthulhu Saves The World and revived the Penny Arcade Adventures, have announced that their next retro-styled RPG is coming this summer. Cosmic Star Heroine [official site] is an intergalactic RPG about a space-super-spy on the lam, and Zeboyd namechecked inspirations like Chrono Trigger and Phantasy Star when they Kickstarted it in 2013.…

Cosmic Star Heroine Alpha Already Shows Star Quality

Gunmancy. Froggoths. Pop-culture cheekiness. Sentient snot. Yes, my friends, Cosmic Star Heroine is already looking like a star. If you're wondering what I'm blathering about, Zeboyd Games recently released half an hour's worth of gameplay footage, all from the alpha version of the upcoming turn-based RPG, which draws inspiration from the likes of Chrono Trigger.

Zeboyd’s Cosmic Star Heroine Is On Kickstarter

Zeboyd, veterans of the lo-fi RPG, have set their sights on a sci-fi espionage RPG called Cosmic Star Heroine, and to make it they're hoping to raise $100,000. That shouldn't be too much of a problem, as they've already raised over $40k. Why so popular? Well, the team are promising a game "inspired by Chrono Trigger, Phantasy Star & Suikoden." They explain: "Alyssa L’Salle is…

Guardian Of The Galaxy: Zeboyd’s Cosmic Star Heroine

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…

Game Over: Penny Arcade Episode Four Out Now

I haven't played a Penny Arcade: Otter Spod (thank you, Adam, for opening my eyes to the wonders of this acronym's pronunciation possibilities) game since the first, rather lukewarm episode by Hothead games, but I'm quite keen to try out the latter half of the series, as Zeboyd are devastatingly handsome kings of comedy. So I guess I have some catching up to do, because…

Finale: Penny Arcade – OTR-SPOD Episode Four

The fourth episode of Penny Arcade: Otter Spod will be the final chapter in the comic saga. There's a good chance anyone who played the game, or followed development, already knew that number four was the finale, but I've been under a rock playing strategy games instead. I really should emerge from time to time, not only because it'd be good for my posture, but…

Penny Arcade: Prohibitively Long Title 3 Trail Is Very Silly

That thing right there? I do believe it's some form of Moroccan crab man, and its virtual existence forces me to face a very profound dilemma. See, I am immediately curious about every facet of its existence - context within the story, capabilities, linguistic background, favorite food, blood type, opinion on jazz music's current place in society, what crabomancy actually entails, etc - but, on…

Zeboyd’s Penny Arcade Episode 3 Out June 25

The temptation to write 'Episode 3 Unexpectedly Launches on June 25' was strong, particularly after that potato sack business started to chip away at the collective consciousness of the internet. I'm not cruel though. Not that cruel. Zeboyd, of Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII, have brought forward the release of their continuation of Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness…

Penny Arcade Adventures Returns In Hands Of Zeboyd

The Penny Arcade games were, perhaps, not all of the good in the world in one place. But there's some rather splendid news afoot. What had clearly been abandoned is to return, but now in the hands of the rather brilliant Zeboyd Games. They who made the utterly fab Cthulhu Saves The World. They've been put in charge of the ever-hideously named Penny Arcade Adventures:…

Zeboyd Are On the Rain-Slick Precipice

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?…

Zeboyd PC Sales Leave XBLIG In The Dust

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…

Feature: A R'lyeh Good Time

Cthulhu Saves The World review

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…

Summoning Cthulhu: Natter with Zeboyd

Zeboyd Games have made a name for themselves over on the digital mega-network of the Xbox three hundred and sixty, having two of the highest rated XBLIGS on the service. Off the back of that success, they are now breaking out onto the mighty PC. I caught up with designer Robert Boyd, who you might also know as the bloke behind the winter uprising, to…
