Reviews

“More than anything it reminds me of nights spent around friends' houses, as we all picked through the Galapagos archipelagos of weird shareware software they had somehow accrued from places unknown.”
Recommended – Eurogamer

“Saraintaris, as an experienced author, brings a real sense of polish to the prose, while Ruppel's work is a perfect complement to the sensationalist overtones of pulpy fantasy and horror. If pixel-pulps want to become the pulp fiction of visual novels, I'm all for it.
PC Gamer

“Mothmen 1966 may very well be the start of an exciting future for indie horror moving forward.”

About This Game

At the edge of reality, where nightmare creatures lurk...



November, 1966. The Leonid Meteor Shower.

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.

  • Unfurl the dark wings of the rich, branching narrative
  • Immerse yourself in the story with its rich, evocative illustrations
  • Decide the fate of Mothmen 1966’s characters in ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ style gameplay
