Video: Cthulhu Saves the World


If there's one thing that we can do as an industry as a whole is too not get too caught up in the releases throughout the year that are sporting multi-million [insert currency here] budgets. There are lots of developers out there who are talented and very much deserving of having their work thrown in with everyone else. Apart of this "underground" world is indeed Xbox LIVE Indies. There isn't exactly a dearth of old school RPG action going around these days and the Xbox LIVE Indie channel is where you'll find Cthulhu Saves the World. For a measly 240 Microsoft Points you'll find what most certainly won't find from retail now a days.
