Night of the Cephalopods is a survival horror game with old school pixel art graphics and an innovative fully voiced dynamic narrative system. The game begins with you lost in the woods after mistakenly summoning legions of preternatural octopi through a mistranslation of the Octinomicon, an eight volume set of books with mysterious power. Now you must fight till dawn with only your shotgun and a handful of shells. Throughout the game your status, the actions you take and the locations you explore are narrated back to you in the style of classic horror master H.P. Lovecraft with full high quality voice acting.

Comment: I think this game is pretty funny in the beginning. It’s very entertaining. But it gets boring after a while like all other games.

Comment: A fun game to play. This game offer a good and interesting story as well as a nice gameplay.


  1. Rly bad for me, going trough maze and killing some weird looking octopuses, higher lvl more complex maze is. I bet that i can find so much more inserting games on old “SEGA”. Dont recommend it, 0 fun for me

  2. Survival shooting game with interesting and funny gameplay, graphics are little out dated but game is worth playing…Killing zombies and getting on higher level is pretty funny here

  4. Very solid 2D horror game. Since it is 2D it is not thattt scary which is why I like it more than normal horror games. I don’t really like to be scared that much. This game has very cute and pretty decent pixelated graphics. For some reason it reminds me of a few more games. I rate this game 4/5.

  5. Pretty good survival horror game, although I don’t really see the horror as much. I like the idea of fighting against cephalopods; however, the game feels sluggish. For instance, the character movement is just too slow. But as for the artwork, the game looks amazing with its 2D graphics. Overall, I’d give the game a 4/5.
