How To Make A Video Game While Really Trying
The Christmas Update: More VO
Description
Release date: When it's ready, amirite?
Sick to death of H.P. Lovecraft-based games yet? No? That's great! If you are... well... still play this one.

The General Concept
At its heart, AoT:ACDS is a coming-of-age tale about a boy/girl that is totally going to destroy humanity. By humanity, we mean a small coastal town. It is the Adventure-RPG based upon Shadow Over Innsmouth, where you control the eldritch horrors from beyond time and space! Inspired by classic RPGs, Lucasarts adventure games, and other things you might possibly like (hey, everyone else wins you over that way...)!

Plot and Story and, you know, That Junk
Dagon is all like 'yo' and Perry/you is all like 'sup'. Dagon needs you to destroy the human town of Innsmouth, but you're all like 'there are a lot of people living there, so I'mma need to get an army worthy of Mordor so I can simply walk into Innsmouth'. Dagon's all 'sure, but you have a time limit because that's how this game has replayability'.

Features
  • Quriky 2D art with photography backdrops. Like the theme of sanity in all of Lovecraft's works, the art changes - sometimes drastically
  • based on where you are in the game, who you are talking to, and what you are doing.
  • Time management is also a factor, as some areas only open up at certain times, and you may find yourself unable to train everyone you want before the final invasion of Innsmouth.
  • Full voice cast of 68 characters!
  • Four central hub areas
  • Whale Jesus (but only in the most awesome of playthroughs)
  • Use your wits to engage in battles where words are sharper than swords or other things that hurt people in reality! Because NOBODY has EVER done conversation-based combat before!
  • Recruit a party of THOUSANDS (if thousands meant six), ranging from Deep Ones to Night Gaunts, all staples of the Lovecraft mythos!
  • Find hidden army squads and party members to further puff up your ranks!
  • Do things that relate to other things and provide consequences of choice! We totally have more than three differently colored endings! We swear! (At least five! One is even pink*!)

Army of Tentacles contains a CLASSIC Stegalosaurus story that they have come to be known for***, to be enjoyed for hundreds upon hundreds of hours** or until you beat it! Hey, we can't all be Skyrim.

And no, it's not a Cthulhu Dating Simulator. Honestly.

No, really.

* May not actually have a pink ending
** Actual gameplay time may vary... we had a joke for this but forgot between the time of thinking it and writing the words.
*** Is actually Stegalosaurus' first game****
**** that is the joke

Understandable.

The grin on my face from reading the title on my greenlight queue brought me here, but... well, there's a lot missing, as has been previously mentioned.

Will hold off voting for now - following for future development.

This may be even cuter than Cartman and Cthlulu. I'm a sucker for Lovecraft & RPGs. Sold/yes vote!

Did someone ms paint draw on the skull kid's head? Also, Perry seems to keep the same smug face the whole time.
