Get ready for more pulpy graphic adventure gaming from LCB Game Studio and publisher Chorus Worldwide Games, as their follow-up to last year’s Mothmen 1966 in Varney Lake is out now. Unlike the previous game, instead of diving into cryptids, Varney Lake deals with something a little more “grounded” in vampires.
This second entry in the Pixel Pulps Anthology following paranormal investigator Lou Hill, Varney Lake finds him investigating the story of a supposed vampire encounter in 1954. Jimmy and Christine have murky memories of their childhood vacation where they claim to have met a vampire. Their friend Doug, who was with them, has long since gone missing. Lou Hill must follow the tracks of aged recollections to deduce macabre truths and discover Doug’s fate.
Players will get to the bottom of these mysteries by setting up camp and navigating the surrounding wilderness via choice-based gameplay seamlessly affecting a branching interactive fiction. Meet a neighboring vampire with a mysterious wound and carefully handle tense scenarios by solving accessible puzzles. Uncover the paranormal investigator’s veiled past in a dual-timeline story inspired by books with choices and branching narratives. Sink into a gripping tale of time and terror as the reality behind Doug’s disappearance comes to light.
After you satisfy your thirst for vampires, you can also check out the demo for the third Pixel Pulps entry in Bahnsen Knights which is due out Q4 2023. Put on the gumshoes of undercover agent Boulder and follow a doomsday cult as they go on ‘route exorcisms’ while biblical storms rip across the country. Uncover why Lou Hill found himself locked in a trunk by the cult in this upcoming title by novelist Nico Saraintaris and artist Fernando Martinez Ruppel.
Varney Lake is out now on PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch.
