Gibbous – A Cthulhu Adventure

Gibbous - A Cthulhu Adventure (PC, Mac, Linux) is a comedy point 'n click love letter to classic-era Lucas adventures, HP Lovecraft, Hitchcock and many, many others. A lighthearted spoof of the Cthulhu Mythos, Gibbous will have you controlling 3 protagonists, dealing with strange cultists, ancient voodoo, and Dead Cthulhu himself. Well, "dead" is just a matter of opinion... Everything revolves around the dreaded Necronomicon and how it affects the protagonists' lives. Grizzled detective Don R. Ketype wants it because he always gets his man (or book); and easy going, easy living librarian Buzz Kerwan stumbles upon it and accidentally transforms his cat, Kitteh, into a talking abomination, thus setting on a quest to return her back to cathood.

  • Classically-inspired point and click adventure game
  • Dark yet humorous – think Lovecraft meets Day Of The Tentacle
  • Frame-by-frame traditional animation
  • Lovingly painted 2d backgrounds inspired by Transylvanian architecture and nature
  • Exploration, character and story-driven experience
  • Fully voiced
  • Unique item combination responses for just about everything, up to six “examine” responses
  • Original soundtrack contains different musical themes for almost every screen
  • Tentacles, eldritch things one should not speak of, and all kinds of insanity, both cute and evil

Despite being HD, the game is intended to feel like a 90s adventure with a few modern enhancements like autosaving, hotspot revealer etc. Gibbous draws inspiration from HP Lovecraft's writings, classic Lucas Arts adventures such as Day Of The Tentacle, Monkey Island and Grim Fandango, Hitchcock movies, classic Warner Brother cartoons and Hayao Miyazaki's richly detailed environment art.

Coming 2017. Gibbous is being developed by Stuck In Attic, a three person Transylvanian Romanian independent game studio.
