After successful Kickstarter funding in 2016 and an award-winning release on Steam and GOG last year, Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure is being summoned to Nintendo Switch on 28 October, as announced today on the Future Games Show. Check out the latest trailer here:

Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure follows detective Don R. Ketype, librarian Buzz Kerwan, and his cat who mysteriously just started talking (and predictably isn’t too happy about it). On the hunt for the Necronomicon before it falls into the wrong hands, the three embark on a quest to stop an evil cult in its tracks, and most importantly, make a very cynical cat stop talking.

Now also coming to the Nintendo Switch in time for a spooky, moody Halloween playthrough, Gibbous: A Cthulhu Adventure will be the perfect game to get in the mood for Halloween. Lovingly hand-painted and traditionally animated, this comedy cosmic horror adventure will take players through a colourful rendition of Transylvania as it was meant to be experienced: with a talking cat who’s quite annoyed at you.
