A Cthulhu Adventure Game Full of Swarm.

Who doesn't like talking cats?  Well, now you can get your fill of talking cats in the adventure game Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure from developer Stuck in Attic, on the go with your switch.

Described as a 'point and click cosmic horror comedy game' by Stuck in Attic, Gibbous showed off a pretty slick trailer that was chock full of sass, with our talking cat throwing shade at her hapless owner in a way that would make grumpy cat proud. That poor owner, who goes nameless in the trailer but is known as Buzz Kerwan, happened to find a copy of the necronomicon and gave his black cat the power to speak.

Unfortunately, mayhem soon ensues, leading our hero, his feline companion Kitteh, and a hard boiled detective by the name of Don R. Ketype, to try and contain the Necronomicon before it's too late. Supported by a cast of colorful characters and strange happenings around them, will the trio survive this quirky adventure?

The game is reminiscent of the throwback adventure titles from LucasArts including Curse of Monkey Island and Day of the Tentacle, utilizing the classic point-and-click style that has become a popular niche in recent years. Much of the charm is in the humor and exaggerated visual style, which is cartoonish but filled with a unique visual flair that adds to the retro feel of Gibbous

 
 

Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure was originally released on the PC via Steam and GOG in 2019, and is heavily influenced by not only the LucasArts games, but the works of Disney and Studio Ghibli in terms of their humor and character designs. 

Whether or not we enjoy talking cats, Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure is coming to the Nintendo Switch on October 28th, 2020.
