Mothmen 1966 – Out now!

Mothmen 1966 – Out now!

The visual novel Mothmen 1966 will be the first in a series “Pixel Pulps”, inspired by mid-20th century pulp fiction and ‘80s home computer graphics. This series is developed by LCB Game Studio and published by Chorus Worldwide, and this very first game is now available on PlayStation 4 (playable on PS5), Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via Steam) for $8.99 / €7.99 / £6.79.

Through a confluence of misfortune, young couple Lee and Victoria, local gas station owner Holt, and paranormal investigator Lou encounter mysteries shattering their perception of reality. The annual Leonid Meteor Shower draws spectators far and wide, but in 1966, something’s not quite right. Men in black arrive in town demanding answers to impossible questions, while threatening red eyes peer through the dark woods.

Survive eleven chapters of accessible ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’-inspired gameplay that place narrative above all. Solve tricky puzzles to progress through a night of terrors. Having trouble with a particularly tough riddle? Accept the help of the other characters to maintain Mothmen 1966’s pacing instead of getting stuck. Explore a branching narrative driven by player agency. Uncover hidden cryptids with binoculars, play a game of Impossible Solitaire, fend off a hungry pack of attacking coyotes, and navigate other mini-games providing a sense of urgency. Investigate a gorgeous 8-bit landscape reminiscent of ‘80s tech like the ZX Spectrum accompanied by an otherworldly lo-fi soundtrack.

Mothmen 1966 will be followed by the Stephen King-inspired Varney Lake and the hard-boiled Bahnsen Knights later this year. On Steam, PlayStation 4|5, and Xbox consoles, Mothmen 1966 includes a Varney Lake demo, offering a tease of the mysteries yet to come.

I'm a LARP writer, freelance teacher and everlasting PhD student, and an avid gamer. Nowadays I game mostly on PC, but I love my retro playstation 1 & 2 as well :) I like watching anime, movies and series, and read books & comics whenever I have time!
