It’s Moth Week! So we wanted to put the spotlight onto a title that released last week, striking visual novel Mothmen 1966. Coming out of LCB Studio, an argentinian development team made up of a dynamic duo who refer to their games as ‘pixel pulp’. Mothmen is one of two games they’re planning on releasing this year, with previous titles including Christmas-themed ‘Jolly Laughter’ and drug-fueled ‘Shark Riders’.
An official game description reads as such; ‘A young couple, a gas station owner, and a paranormal investigator get caught up in a terrifying conspiracy taking place at the edge of their reality, where nightmare creatures lurk, and the mysterious men in black lie in wait… Mothmen 1966 is the first in a new series of interactive adventures: Pixel Pulps. Created by novelist Nico Saraintaris and artist Fernando Martinez Ruppel, Pixel Pulps are a fusion of exceptional writing and stunning illustration, inspired by mid-20th century pulp fiction and 80s home computer graphics. The first volume comprises three games: Mothmen 1966, Varney Lake, and Bahnsen Knights.’
This visual novel features unique and recognisable artwork, with everything in the game fitting between shades of black, green and blue. The minimalist color palette really allows the creators to make something that sticks with you, and we can’t wait to explore the story and world of this new title.
