From now on, the fate of the world — as well as Echo XIX^’s destiny – are in your hands.


Inspired by choose your own adventure gamebooks, point ’n’ click games, and mobile narrative games, like Lifeline, Chroniric XIX finds players in a world based on true historical facts that players will have to change. Throughout the game, players will discover more about Echo XIX^’s personality and deep background, thus creating an unprecedented bond with a fictional character.


“We really enjoyed working on Chroniric XIX,” says Nicolas Devos and Fabien Camus, creators of the game at We Are Chroniric. “We’re are eagerly waiting for players to dive into the game’s plot. We’re currently writing a sequel, unveiling even more the mystery around Scribes and the devoted Time Patrollers.”
