Chthonicle cover

While browsing the Internet, I stumbled across a game called Daily Chthonicle. By casting players as the editor of a newspaper in a haunted town, it combines two of my favorite things: supernatural cosmic horror, and journalism.

The game’s official site has more details on the title, describing it as a procedurally-generated RPG that sees players managing a team of investigators and reporters. It’s set in a hostile city where the third-page story is more likely about a grisly werewolf attack than a local bake sale. A short trailer shows the player equipping their team with various items, including lockpicks, whiskey and crucifixes.

Daily Chthonicle: Editor’s Edition will be available on Steam Early Access from July 13. The developer’s website also has demos of the game if you want to give it a try. I know I will.
