De Vermis Mysteriis
'Mysteries of the Worm' is Arkham Drive-Ins blog written by guest contributor,
Ludwig Prinn. In this dusty tome, he looks at the world wide web for weird traces of Lovecraftian (and other horror related) lore.
So cruising the great God Google and came up for some Season mythos designs. Props to the original creators who risked their sanity by carving with Non-Euclidean geometry:

An Evil Sorcerer wakes Cthulhu from his peaceful slumber in R'lyeh. His powers are stolen and
the only way to regain them is to turn to the light side and become a hero. On the way, friends and allies join you party to help you on this quest. And that's the premise for this super cute 16 bit role playing game that's available. You get to visit familiar Lovecraftian locations like Innsmouth and Dunwich and battle foes like Dagon and Nyarlathotep. The combat system is turn based like the first Final Fantasy games and the exploration is similar to Zelda. 'Cthulhu Saves the World' is a humour filled game and is available for pennies from Xbox Live Indie Games (which is isn't available in Ireland. Curse you MS) as well as on Steam for the PC.
Super cool promo video with the catchiest, insanity inducing theme song:
