Mothmen 1966 Is A Pulp Mystery With 8-Bit Home Computer Graphics

Publisher Chorus Worldwide has announced Mothmen 1966, a visual novel that features classic 8-bit home computer style visuals to tell a tale inspired by mid-20th century pulp fiction. It will launch on Switch on July 14th at a price of $8.99 / €7.99 / £6.79.

Developed by LCB Game Studio, the game will be the first in a planned series and tells the tale of an investigator, a gas station owner, and a pair of lovers as they look into the bizarre case of the Mothmen within West Virginia’s woods.

Gameplay will entail making dialogue decisions and actions via on-screen text, inspired by classic “choose-your-adventure” stories with various puzzles punctuated throughout.

Shintaro Kanaoya, CEO and founder of Chorus Worldwide, had this to say on the game:

“When we first saw Mothmen 1966, we immediately fell in love with the aesthetic and the writing and knew we had to work with LCB Game Studio. What they’re doing with interactive fiction is nostalgic yet appealing and accessible to modern audiences. We’re very excited to be bringing Mothmen 1966 to fans of narrative games everywhere in July.”
