PC Gamer’s Jody Macgregor takes a deep dive into retro horror with Mothmen 1966, the first visual novel in a series inspired by mid-20th century pulp fiction and ‘80s home computer graphics from publisher Chorus Worldwide and developer LCB Game StudioMothmen 1966 is available now on PlayStation 4 (playable on PS5), Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.

[Mothmen 1966], with its cast of small-town Americans besieged by strange beings who appear during a meteor shower, conjures the stories you get in Stephen King anthologies like Skeleton Crew, or maybe an extra-violent episode of The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits.

If you’ve read The Mothman Prophecies by John Keel, or watched theterrible Richard Gere moviebased on it, you might think you know where things are going, but Mothmen 1966 is an original twist on this slice of West Virginia folklore.
