About This Game

You're on a fishing boat in the Pacific Ocean, on your first assignment as a reporter for the prestigious EBC News, when you witness a showstopper story: mysterious fireballs streaking across the sky and crashing down into the ocean's depths. Immediately, you're catapulted to journalistic stardom. But once the waters settle, it becomes clear the fireballs were only the beginning of something far more sinister…a deadly threat now lurking in the deeps…

The Kraken Wakes is the exclusive adaptation of John Wyndham’s epic 1950s sci-fi/horror novel. In this narrative-rich experience, you answer the characters’ questions by talking or typing in natural language, rather than selecting from multiple choice options. What you say can influence the characters’ actions and emotions, shaping the story as it unfolds. Devise eye-catching headlines, deliver knock-out press conference performances, and negotiate with governments in your mission to uncover the truth about the fireballs before it’s too late!
