Lovecraftian Party Game “Sacrifice Your Friends” Coming to Switch, Xbox Platforms this Year

Publisher RedDeer.Games recently announced that the H.P. Lovecraft-inspired party game Sacrifice Your Friends is coming to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and SeXbox later this year.

Developed by Astrolabe Interactive and successfully crowdfunded in 2019, Sacrifice Your Friends is a comedic horror brawler for 1-4 players. The game is already available for PC via Steam early access, and when the Switch and Xbox editions launch later this year, gamers across all systems will be able to play together thanks to cross-platform support.

Here’s the official breakdown of Sacrifice Your Friends from RedDeer.Games:


There is nothing sweeter than a chibi Cthulhu. But don’t be fooled by the cartoon style, Sacrifice Your Friends is a true challenge.

The game is fast and dynamic, and the battles are intense. Randomly appearing weapons and various traps make you think on your feet and never stay in one place too long.

Of course, unless you want to be sacrificed.


The Mountain of Madness or the Nameless City catacombs are places that every Lovecraft fan will definitely recognize. Story mode will take you and your friends to locations inspired by the writer’s novels.

Would you prefer to explore the universe of H.P. Lovecraft by yourself? No problem. The brave one can go on a dangerous journey all alone in a single-player mode.


Sacrifice Your Friends will appeal to everyone who likes good horror… with humor. Chasing friends with an enormous axe in their hands, killer tentacles, or the odd fish-folks mob of Innsmouth – it sounds like an epic party!


Whether you share a couch with your victim or live on two opposite edges of the world, the Great Old Ones know no borders. The game includes local and online mode!

Don’t forget to wake mighty Cthulhu up later this year with Sacrifice Your Friends!
