Son of the House of the Bride of An Old Competitor Rises From the Grave
Back in the '80s horror role-playing was pretty much a two-way competition between Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu (Lovecraftian cosmic horror) and Pacesetter Games' Chill (Universal/Hammer style Gothic horror). CoC kept plugging along while Chill changed owners several times and foundered after a third-edition fundraiser failed. Control of the license was split among multiple parties, and the game was effectively dead.
This week, however, Goblinoid Games -- which has acquired rights to the Pacesetter Games brand and the games TimeMaster and Sandman -- announced a new Pacesetter System horror RPG: Cryptworld. The game will be more generic than Chill, supporting more styles of horror campaigns. Cryptworld will be available print-on-demand; Goblinoid plans to announce an order date once the final proofs arrive.

Other new Pacesetter System titles are Rotworld (zombie apocalypse) and Majus (magic noir).
So Chill isn't back, but this new creature bears an eerie family resemblance.
