Night of the Cephalopods

Night of the Cephalopods doesn't feature any innovations in gameplay. It is, however, the only game I'm aware of that will narrate the action on-screen in an overwrought, Lovecraftian style that responds to the player's action.

This post was deleted for the following reason: Peering into the darkness, he saw at last a glimmer of movement. Up from the depths a shadow crept, darkness in flesh, writhing toward him with unspeakable movements. His mind, assualted thus, was rent and split, his wonder and terror doubling, trebling, diffusing into madness. -- cortex

I think you mean "He felt the clammy hands of a gibbering horror spiderwalk up his spine as he realized this was, in fact, an ancience and eldrich post."

Son of a bitch, I searched for "cephalopods" and got nothing at all. Ah, well.

If it makes you feel better, I was about to flag it as Windows-only.

You mean Lunix?

Right, Lunix. I use Commie Distro which isn't dying but smells that way.

I don't even know what Linux or Lunix means, I'm just trying to sound cool.

Hey, does anyone read the posts down here?

I'm assuming the mods are hung over. In Vegas. Matt's been kidnapped, cortex has a stranger's baby and Jes pulled out one of her own teeth.
