Game Info

This game lets you try on the role of a Supernatural Newspaper Agency boss and editor. The world it takes place in is a dark and haunted one, with ghosts, zombies, monsters and even shapeshifting murderers, pretending to be human after they have stolen their victims' bodies or infiltrated the humanity. It was inspired heavily by the works of H.P.Lovecraft and it builds on the atmosphere of uncertainty and noir of the 1940s.

Send your sextet of weathered journalists, detectives and occult specialists to investigate murder, affair, and horror in the Town.

Each time, the story will be different. Sometimes, a werewolf is shredding innocent (and less innocent) victims to pieces and it is your task to unmask the creature. Other times, it will be a body stealing alien from outer space, a mummy that some misfortunate archeologist has excavated and is now haunting them. Perhaps it will be Jack the Ripper, still mysteriously alive and lurking in the streets at night.

Or maybe there is a really bad big tentacled monster hidden in the cellar of the University?

It is for you to find out and entertain your readers while bravely standing up against ancient evil.

Game is already great, congrats !

Is there a way to save your game to come back to your investigations later or is not implemented yet ?

The UI is a little confusing at first but with trials and errors you get to know what does what, and the cases are really interesting.

Thanks! :)

The save function isn't implemented yet, but I'm planning to include it in one of the future releases.

As for the GUI, I agree, the ergonomy needs improvements and a more thorough tutorial explaining the interface itself, wouldn't hurt.

As for the cases, I am glad that you find them interesting. Really in terms of solid narrative generation, this is merely a humble tiny step, but I really hope it is a step in the right direction.

In any case, now that the basic game stands on its own, I can finally focus my full attention to exploring the storyteller algorithems and finding new interactions between generated narrative and the player.

Cheers!
