Since the games been in development for the past year, the final build is quickly approaching. Developer Stuck In Attic is now looking for Linux testers. So if you’re eager to get into some of this point and click adventure, now is the time.

So what is Gibbous – A Cthulhu Adventure

A lighthearted spoof of the Cthulhu Mythos. Gibbous will have players controlling 3 protagonists. While dealing with strange cultists, ancient voodoo, and Dead Cthulhu himself. Well, “dead” is just a matter of opinion… But you really came here for the bullet points, didn’t you?
Since this takes place in the present day, things have been getting weird around Darkham lately. Weirder than usual. Decadent cults that are rumored to worship strange deities have been popping all over the city. While whispering about the resurgence of the dreaded Necronomicon.
