I suppose my big question would be how to handle it. The world of Chronicle is one where superpowers are essentially unknown, with only three people total with powers and those powers being virtually overwhelming to conventional forces. Combine that with how only one of the three boys got the hang of projecting protection automatically and the sheer lack of conflict until the two of them started fighting... I'm just not certain how well it would translate into game terms.

Now you might have an interesting time taking one or two of the empowered, having them have picked up the protection field trick, and then put them up against a growing opposition of traditional military as they're seen as dangerous threats. Or, alternately, more people are getting empowered.

Ah, so basically just using it as an origin gimmick. That could work. And you could get to all kinds of fun with how power corrupts, as seen in the movie.

for the most part but it would pick up will the movie ends but
with some minor plot changes all 3 of the kids are still alive and the earthquake are caused by the one that snaps
