Today we’re doing a review of Gibbous, a Cthulhu adventure by Stuck in the Attic games.
I’m really digging Gibbous! It’s a true homage to classic adventure games, like Monkey Island, Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle and many others. Fully packed with great voice acting, funny jokes and references, amazing artwork and a fun storyline. It’s a lighthearted spoof of the Cthulhu Mythos, in which you will be dealing with strange cultists, ancient voodoo, and Dead Cthulhu himself. Well, “dead” is just a matter of opinion…
Fully backed on Kickstarter, as a result we can look forward to the full game in the future! Gibbous – A Cthulhu Adventure is a game that is being created by Stuck in Attic games. An indie developer that’s based in Transylvania/Romania.
The story revolves around the protagonists, Buzz Kerwan an easy going librarian that comes across a book that’s called the “Necronomicon”; a book filled with all sorts of spells. As a result he accidentally transforms his cat, called Kitteh, into a talking cat that has a sharp tongue similar to “Max” from the Sam & Max games. This really adds a lot of extra fun and depth to the game. Especially relevant is the humor this brings and the fact that you can get Kitteh to do certain things for you.
In the game you will play either Buzz Kerwan the librarian, a detective called Don R. Retype that is looking for the Necronomicon or Kitteh (?). When playing the demo it is Buzz that you’re starring as, in which the main goal is to get the Voodoo ‘guy’ to help you in the right direction. Consequently you will discover that you need to find Bob Olmstein in Fishmouth. Why? Who is he? How is this related??
