Gibbous, the Kickstarter-funded, traditionally animated and hand-painted adventure is releasing on PC, Mac and Linux this 7 August. Cthulhu may yet rise but for now, the uncaring universe just makes a very cynical cat start talking. See for yourself in the latest trailer: https://youtu.be/Zfbel8N52xY and wishlist Gibbous on Steam: http://gibbousgame.com/steam
Transylvanian studio Stuck In Attic takes players on a spooky quest to make a cat stop talking on Steam and GOG next month.
Kooky cults are popping up everywhere, and Detective Don R. Ketype is on the hunt for the Necronomicon, an evil tome which could cause chaos in the wrong hands. But unsuspecting librarian Buzz Kerwan stumbles upon it and accidentally transforms his cat, Kitteh, into a talking abomination. Being humanized? Quite a downgrade. The three set off on a globe-trotting quest to turn Kitteh back to cathood, uncover greater conspiracies and darker forces at work, and try to figure out the secret behind the Necronomicon’s incommensurable power.
“Gibbous was born out of the unnatural union of comedy, cosmic horror, and local flvour we’re
we’re born and raised in Transylvania, and our Lovecraftian world reflects that. We’ve hand-crafted an adventure game that tackles eldritch abominations with warmth, candour, and a pinch of the absurd. Plus – there’s a talking black cat. Everything’s better with a talking black cat,” said Liviu Boar, Creative Director at Stuck In Attic.
A comedy cosmic horror adventure made in Transylvania.
Darkham, with its crooked gambrel roofs, dark alleys, and a past shrouded in secrecy, never really was a welcoming place, but nowadays? Kooky cults are popping up everywhere, and that most evil book, the Necronomicon, is spoken of in trembling whispers once more.
Detective Don R. Ketype is on the case to retrieve the mysterious evil tome, but unsuspecting librarian Buzz Kerwan stumbles upon it and accidentally transforms his cat, Kitteh, into a walking, talking abomination. Being humanized? Quite a downgrade.
Gibbous is a comedy cosmic horror game – a modern adventure that is classically inspired, features gorgeous HD art, detailed traditional animation, and a lengthy story that will see the three protagonists travel around the world and deal with abominations both cosmic and human-made, voodoo, and Things That Should Not Be. From Lovecraft Country to Transylvania, set off on a quest to get a very cynical cat to stop talking.
