Amusing Demonic RPG, Cthulhu Saves the World, Gets An Upgrade This Spring

By Ishaan . March 15, 2011 . 4:31pm

In December of last year, Xbox Live saw the release of a 16-bit role-playing game titled Cthulhu  Saves the World, produced by indie developer, Zeboyd Games.


Just as he was about to destroy the world, a band of heroes sealed Cthulhu’s powers away, and the only way for him to regain them was to become a true hero by saving the world instead…so he could later destroy it himself. Cthulhu Saves the World let you pick from seven characters to include in your party.


Now, Zeboyd are releasing an enhanced version of the game, titled *deep breath* Cthulhu Saves the World: Super Hyper Enhanced Championship Edition Alpha Diamond DX Plus Alpha FES HD – Premium Enhanced Game of the Year Collector’s Edition (without Avatars!). Yes, that’s really what it’s called.


This new edition of the game comes with a new mode, titled “Cthulhu’s Angels,” where Cthulhu is too lazy to save the world himself, so he convinces a bunch of ladies to do it for him. Zeboyd created entirely new characters for the mode, like Molly the Were-Zompire.


In addition, the game has been re-balanced, and a new difficulty mode along with a “super-hard” bonus dungeon has been added to it as well. You can also search for icons within the game to unlock director’s commentary.


Cthulhu Saves the World: Super Hyper Enhanced Championship Edition (etc. etc.) is planned for release this spring on Xbox Live and PC. If you already own the original version of the game, you’ll get to upgrade it for free. Otherwise, you’ll need to buy it for 240 Microsoft Points ($3) on Xbox Live.

    Holy crap.

    • Oh sh**….longest, most awesome title a game ever had and probably will have!! :D

      • I really, really, really want to make a Panic! at the Disco joke.

    • It’s as if you’re performing spells from the Necronomicon itself.

    • Testsubject909

      Actually, it’s CStW: SHECEADDXPAFESHD-PEGofTCE(wA).

      But since you seem to enjoy taking the much shorter route.

  • Weren’t a bunch of us joking about a title like that just a couple of months ago…?

    • I’m not sure if you mean this here, but that’s the only one I can remember. :P

        • Ah silly me, right that one was even more awesome. xD

          I still wait for my TSFTotLHEatMSWfNbBP:NQeXII, how long does it take to finish some enhancements?! >:O

        • Zero_Destiny

          >:( HEY!!!!
          The Secret Final Tales of the Last Hearts’ End and their Magnificent Story Woven from Nothing but BURNING PASSION: New Quest Edition XII is no joke!!!! That HAPPENS to be my lifework. It even has it’s own boxart!!!! :P
          @Raioh Stop Complaining it gets here when it gets here!!!! I’ve put my heart and soul into this new version. I won’t be happy until it retcons everything good about the original and becomes so convoluted that no one can recognized it. Until then I won’t stop messing with it. lol

          • Your lifework proves still that even years from now, people will still be developing for the PS2.

            (yes the system is the one thing I mainly noticed)

          • Zero_Destiny

            Well don’t you worry after it comes out I WILL make it my lifelong work to make an enhanced up-scaled 16:9 PS3 Version. Of course the PS5 will be out by then but that just means we’ll get three (counting the PS3) more versions. :P

          • Bah, Ok ok I’ll wait. :/
            Though I hope I will have the chande to play it someday, I would even buy 200.000 copies of your game to support you! :D
            But PS2??? Come on man, I want my TSFTotLHEatMSWfNbBP:NQeXII in HD. ;__; The girls and the fanservice in that game totally deserve a HD game(the hot spring scene was soo awesome in the uncensored version), not to mention the super awesome skills that would look even more detailed and astounding. :D
            Edit: Ok saw your post, so an extra lifelong wait to have the actual best version? Man your so hardcore, but that’s why I love your game series! :D

          • Zero_Destiny

            *points to lower comment* Just you wait. When the PS3 is dead for like four or five years you WILL get your game. I’ve already just got struck with a sudden burst of inspiration. The new PS3 version will be called The Secret Final Tales of the Last Hearts’ End and their Magnificent Story Woven from Nothing but BURNING PASSION: HD COLLECTOR’S EDITION & EIGHT YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION. ALSO THIS GAME WAS GAME OF THE MONTH THREE YEARS AGO EDITION II
            Ah just you wait 2017 will be your year. :D Though I guess since it won’t come out until 2017 that would be more like 14 year anniversary instead. Well the title is a work in progress don’t worry too much. Now to get back to working on MY masterpiece.

        • Good times

        • That game has Goldar from Power Rangers in it, awesome.

  • By Atlus logic, “the longer the name, the better the game,” this must be one freaken incredible game! xD

  • Zero_Destiny

    Oh Cthulhu you slay me. :P
    Also to you guys at Zeboyd.
    COPYCATS!!!!!! XD

  • prinnydood123

    I don’t know those graphics look like there 19.5 bit to me, but then again what the hell do bits measure anyway!?

  • Should come with a free oxygen tank because saying that title sure leaves you winded.

  • Best game title ever – so buying this XD
