  • Daily Chthonicle: Editor's Edition

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.

These are all to be decided in the future, but now we present the following features: A procedurally generated cosmos with star systems, planets, planetary landscapes, lifeforms and biomes, archeological sites and finds, astronomical phenomena, human and alien cultur...

I started working on a new game, it's in early prototype stage but if anyone is interested in complex RPG simulations, please do take a look! {STEAM_CLAN_IMAGE}/25423813/c10a7e904df11c41327e6c53adfc9c271e77bf40.png Oh, another space trading and exploration game, you might say. But well, I'm trying to do it my way so it's gonna be a bit different. I'm trying to create the atmosphere of exploring an unknown, dangerous universe, perhaps similar to some early space RPGs like Starflight or Starcom 2 ...

...In conclusion, Daily Chthonicle suffers mostly from a bad interface, it does not meet its goals in terms of providing meaningful procedurally generated story-telling, but the game hiding under the outer shell is a fine one; an interesting management sim, with great RPG elements in how to deal with encounters. The weird horror setting is used well and makes this game stand out despite not being a polished product. Imperfect but very promising, I would love to see a sequel with a more classical...

Among other games, on Daily Chthonicle: Look, it’s Arkham Horror. Aside from some tweaks and a lack of fiddly tokens, it’s exactly the same. That's okay, though! Daily Chthonicle: Editor’s Edition is a fun and ridiculously cheap experience (don’t bother with the free mod, it’s outdated). As a newspaper editor of the Fortean Times variety, you'll send a group of plucky reporters out on promising leads, where they’ll encounter all sorts of Lovecraftian foes and disturbing clues... Read about the o...
