Zeboyd Games RPG Combo Pack Coming to PC
Independent XNA development team Zeboyd Games has recently announced that their RPG titles–Breath of Death VII: The Beginning and Cthulhu Saves the World–will be making a crossover from the Xbox Indies Marketplace to both STEAM and GamersGate.
Zeboyd Games’ releases will be available on July 13, 2011 in a combo pack containing both blockbuster Indie RPG’s for the low cost of $3.
The included version of CStW will be an updated version that has new in-game features and unlockables to provide for even more re-playability, adding a myriad of elements to the game for players to experience. Gamers who have previously purchased CStW on the Xbox Live Indie Games Marketplace will also be able to download the update patch free of charge, adding the same features that are included with the PC version.
Below are details from the Press Release announcement:
Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII: The Beginning will be available on the PC for the first time on July 13th, 2011.
The two games will be bundled together in a convenient combo pack that will sell for a mere $3 from Steam and Gamersgate. Friends and family of the developers attribute the low price to cosmic insanity, induced by the developer’s prolonged exposure to Lovecraftian monstrosities.
Cthulhu Saves the World:
The lord of insanity, Cthulhu was all set to plunge the world into insanity and destruction when his powers were sealed by a mysterious sorcerer. The only way for him to break the curse is to become a true hero. Save the world to destroy it in an epic parody RPG journey of redemption, romance, and insanity!
Not content to merely repackage existing content and sell it at an insanely low price, the PC version of Cthulhu Saves the World will feature numerous improvements over the original XBox 360 release.
Dubbed the 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!) or CSTW:SHECEADDPAFH – PEGYCE (WA!) for short.
Breath of Death VII: The Beginning:
Resurrect the classic era of RPGs with the retro parody RPG, Breath of Death VII: The Beginning.
