Gibbous Game – A Cthulhu Adventure:

Gibbous Game – A Cthulhu Adventure is a comedy adventure game with a modern flair of adventure that is classically inspired, features gorgeous HD art, detailed traditional animation, and a lengthy story that will see the three protagonists travel around the world in search of adventure. On the way, you will encounter mystic creatures, voodoo magic, and riddles. From Lovecraft Country to Transylvania, set off on a quest to get a very cynical cat to stop talking.

Main Features of the project

Play as three protagonists and explore a lushly rendered Lovecraft-inspired world, unraveling ancient conspiracies. A comedy cosmic horror adventure made in Transylvania.

The look and feel of the game

The game will feel like an HD 90s adventure, with a few modern enhancements like autosaving and hotspot highlighter that will make your life among insane cultists and fish-people just a bit easier.

We believe exploration is the way to go when it comes to adventures, that’s why most hotspots have multiple “examine” responses. We’re not crazy about games always shouting back the same thing when you use something on something else, so we’re making a point of having customized responses for every combination you can think of, Shub-Niggurath willing.

Animation

To give you an idea, each second of animation requires 72 individual drawings. Blink and you’ll miss half an animator’s work day. Literally. Bringing Gibbous’ characters to life is a very time consuming task.

Visually, Gibbous draws influences from plenty of mediums – from Peter Chan’s amazing work on 90’s adventures to Hayao Miyazaki’s movies’ incredible backdrops. A mixture of cartoony and surreal, our background art constitutes probably the most time-consuming aspect of bringing Gibbous to life, along with the traditionally animated characters.

Music

When it came to what Gibbous’ music would be like, a rich, orchestral score was immediately what the team had in mind. We’re very thrilled with the fact that Virtual Studio Technology has evolved enough to credibly emulate live instruments, and on top of that we’re putting our composer and animator’s skills to work in order for the tracks to feel more organic .
