Cthulhu Christmas Calendar

By Red Wasp Design

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


"Red Wasp has produced perhaps the most interesting iPad advent calendar ever." -

'App of the Week' -
'8 out of 10'

"The artwork really does stand out and would make even Cthulhu proud. It is a nice gift to be presented with the vibrant and high-quality art each day. I loved how well Red Wasp Design was able to merge a holiday theme with the likes of Cthulhu and Nyarlathotep." -

The Cthulhu Christmas Calendar is an advent app that counts down to Christmas but with a Cyclopean twist! Each day features an original image which is unlocked in the December count down to Christmas.

The original artwork does indeed feature well-loved festive imagery you might expect such as Santa, mistletoe, Christmas trees and the like but these have been merged, mutated, mixed and mashed with other, darker figures drawn from H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.

Cthulhu Christmas Calendar is the fun way to count down till the stars are right and presents can be opened from their slumber. As well as great art, each day also has a Cthulhu-related question for you to puzzle over and answer, with the finally tally of right and wrong being delivered on the 25th, when the score will give you your 'Mythos rating'.

Keep track of the sleeps until Cthulhu-mass with the Cthulhu Christmas Calendar; don't leave R'lyeh without it!

Almost as fun as a brain canister

This app is a hoot. I enjoy the new artwork each day and the trivia questions make for a fun review of Lovecraftian lore. After ten days of use, I have not run into any technical issues, bugs, or crashes.

But beware: Constant exposure to such inconceivable horrors may drive you beyond the limits of sanity.


I love waking up each morning and having a new lovecraftian picture and question to start the day. This is the first year that I have had it, but I hope they have different art each year.

Rip off, refuses to work after christmas.

I enjoyed this when I first downloaded it shortly before christmas. However I also really enjoyed the humor and art style and so I tried to open it again the other day and was surprised to find a message saying "It's not december" and it refused to open. I repeat you CANNOT use this app, that you paid for, any time other than december. Head scratching and irritating to sat the least.
