Night of the Cephalopods is a short action game created for the Artsy Games Incubator project, where players assume control over a man who is hounded by Lovecraftian creatures of the octopi type. Contact with these horrors causes your character to lose a little of his sanity, although mental health can be automatically restored by standing still in one spot for a few seconds.

Use the cursor keys to move, and press the space key to fire your shotgun or reload it. The game ends when our hero loses his mind completely, or when you manage to somehow survive until the break of dawn. (gameplay video)
