(12/7) patched for some of the possible issues!
Cthulhu is coming!
He just wants to absorb you through his acidic pores! Why humans have such a problem with this, Cthulhu doesn't even know.
Left/Right arrow keys to move.
Spacebar to capture and hideously mutate a human.
R to restart level if you're blowing chow.
You cannot mutate until your power-bar (lower left) is full! The violence of humans fighting your monsters charges the bar!
Cthulhu fhtagn!


Lotsa fun

Awesome game, the dark dialogue was comedy gold, and the concept was funny and entertaining.

Difficulty level was just right, not easy enough to be boring, and not hard enough to be frustrating.

Great game!

but somehow I hacked it. Not on purpose though. When I died, I went to hit enter to skip chat, then I hit space bar, and it keep going through all the chats for the next level. I couldnt do anything but hit space bar to continue, then eventually I was on top of the earth.

Great game / Music / Atmosphere

Loved the game and how you made it feel very dark, esp with the voices and music.

Gameplay was more of a puzzle than traditional TD, but all in all, good game.



Excellent game. I think the banter between Cthulhu and minion was great. I also liked using the enemy as the defense I thought that was clever.

Some things I think would have made it even better:

1. The setting, The old house just didn't scream Cthulhu to me (it certainly wasn't built strange aeons ago). Though I can understand why it was used.

2. Wings, where were his little wings.

3. Ok, so those were rather superficial, but you know what would make the game more interesting? Banter from the invading humans or between the humans and the monsters. This game has a great lighter side to it, why not?

4. It was really easy to accidentally move between areas when trying to place a guy near a doorway. This resulted in a couple of level restarts for me. Simple fix, give us an indicator of where the room switch is made.

Great game anyhow. Just a fun relaxing defense puzzle. Doesn't really leave room for a sequel but there is more to lovecraft than Cthulhu so maybe it does.

I think a well deserved 5/5 and 10/10

great game!

I like the humor its nice to know its not lost on an ancient god. There could be a little more done to it to tweak it and make it slightly more exciting. But as for that its a nice twist on a tower defense style game!
