Cthulhu Saves the World will be out December 29/30th!
« on: December 29, 2010, 03:10:07 PM »
It's been a long time coming, but our second RPG, Cthulhu Saves the World has passed peer review! It will be available on the XBox Live Indie Games Marketplace in about 12 hours (so late night December 29th or early morning December 30th depending on your time zone). 240 MS points.

I'm very excited! Whereas Breath of Death VII was more of an 8-bit throwback, for Cthulhu Saves the World, we went all out with a 16-bit style. I think it's a big improvement over our last game in just about every aspect possible so I hope everyone enjoys it!

One more reason I'm sad about my lack of 360 ownership.

We're going to see if we can get it out on Steam later so if you don't have a 360, you'd be able to play it there. That's still a ways off, though.

This would be awesome on steam, probably a huge seller in the long term like all these other indie games.

It looks interesting from what I've seen.


Is there any hope for a PSP/PS3 minis release? :p

Same here.

It is my understanding that the SDKs for 360 and PC are the same... am I way off, or is it a conscious decision to not release PC versions?

I used Microsoft XNA Game Studio 3.1 and Visual C# 2008 Express Edition to make Cthulhu Saves the World. It's true that these pieces of software are designed to make 360/PC cross-development easier than normal, however it still is more work to do two platforms simultaneously. That's why we decided to focus on the 360 version first and then port the game to the PC afterwords.

As for a PSN Version, unless Sony offers to pay us, it's not happening for CSTW. It would cost us a good bit of money and time to port the game over to the PSN (we'd have to get approved by Sony, spend thousands on an official PSP Mini SDK, and then completely rewrite most of the code) and it just doesn't seem worth it to go to all that trouble when that the PSP is a dying platform and the PS3 isn't as popular in the US as the 360 or PC.

The curse of Xbox... but given the recent sales you may be in luck.
