Cthulhu Thursday: Cthulhu Countdown to Cthulhumas!
Really happy to say that the Cthulhu Christmas Calendar is now out! This is the first publicly avalible release by our indie development project, Red Wasp Design. Here’s the bumff! Ai! Ai! Cthulhumas!
Cthulhu’s Crazy Nightmare Before Christmas
Fans of the meme-monster Cthulhu and other creations of cult horror novelist H.P. Lovecraft can get a little extra help in counting down to Christmas, thanks to a new mobile advent calendar app. Titled ‘Cthulhu Christmas Calendar’, it features 25 original pieces of artwork – one for each day in December until Christmas Day. Each image presents a fun mashup of festive icons like Santa into the Cyclopean world of the great Cthulhu, the malevolent Mi-Go and the dark god Nyarlathotep. Indie developer Red Wasp Design today released the Cthulhu Christmas Calendar for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android. As well as featuring a new and original creation of art for each day, it also features quiz questions related to the images. Fans will find out their ‘Mythos rating’ on the 25th when their scores are revealed along with the final festivehorror image. The app is available now from the App Store for iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone. It is also available for Android from the Android Market. It is priced at:
· iPhone & iPod Touch ($0.99/£0.69/€0.79)
· iPad 1 & 2 ($1.99/£1.49;/€1.59)
· Android Store ($0.99/£0.69/€0.79)
· Amazon App Store (coming soon!)
There is more information on the Cthulhu Christmas Calendar page and you can chat about it with fellow cultists on its own Facebook page.
