The Right People + The Right Tools

Chronicler was built around the idea that games can do more than just tell a story - that they can be a vehicle for personal growth, and that the stories are a genuine collaboration between players and developers. We're creating truly high-quality games based on the guidelines that the right tools and people can move fast and create detailed worlds. Chronicler is currently building an AA 3D action adventure title with AI-driven storytelling.
