Do you miss the good old days of point-and-click adventure games that brought both substance and style? Well, Romanian developer Stuck In Attic’s Gibbous – A Cthulhu Adventure may be the title to scratch that itch.
Boasting a hand-drawn art style that’s reminiscent of the Disney films of yore and gameplay that’s inspired by point-and-click classics, Gibbous is shaping up to be one of the indie games to keep an eye on in 2019. Thankfully players won’t have to wait long to get their hands on the title, with the game launching on PC on August 7.
Featuring a talking cat with serious attitude and the voice acting work of Doug Cockle (Geralt of Rivia), Gibbous is a comedic take on the Cthulhu Mythos that includes over 60 fully voiced characters and over 12,000 lines of dialogue.
Set in in the fictional Transylvanian town of Darkham, Gibbous follows the story of librarian Buzz Kerwan, who by happenstance discovers the evil Necronomicon tome – turning his cat Kitteh into a talking furball of attitude in the process. Joining these two is Detective Don R. Ketype, who has been on the hunt for the Necronomicon for some time. Together, the trio sets off on an adventure to discover the secrets of the Necronomicon while reverting Kitteh back to his normal kitty self.
