Anyone who knows anything about Cthulu knows that any interaction dealing with the ancient being results in either death or insanity. But what if the squiggily-faced wonder was fighting to protect the human race rather than destroy it? Well then you might have an adventure that looks something like Cthulu Saves the World, which has now been given a release date of June 28.

That’s right, boys and girls. As is being reported by Touch Arcade, Cthulu’s quest to serve as humanity’s savior is just a handful of days away, hitting the digital market for the iPad and iPhone, Android and Mac early next week.

No matter what version of the classic style, turn-based RPG you happen to pick up, you’ll only be set back $1.99. That’s a savings of a buck over the currently available PC version.

As for gameplay, imagine if a Nintendo-era Final Fantasy game was inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, then injected with a dose of modern-day awesomeness. Lacking his true power, Cthulhu must travel around the world, meet bizarre townspeople and quest through eight or so hours of storyline in order to become the ultimate hero.

I think I just heard D&D nerds the world over squeal in united excitement. Don’t take offense if you fall into that camp, because I’m right there with you. Pretty much every popular monster on the planet (zombies, vampires, werewolves) has had a year or two in the spotlight as of late, and its high time Cthulhu get his due.
