Did somebody say, X-Files? I’m in!
IDW Games and 20th Century FOX Consumer Products have announced a storytelling party game for the X-Files. This storytelling, social party game with light deduction puts players in the role to creating plausible theories using evidence at the scene to convince the other players of their case.
Designed by Matt Fantastic, designer for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED, puts players in the role of Special Agent Fox Mulder who is trying to earn the respect of the other players as FBI Directors to create a plausible theory for the case. This storytelling game is built deep within the lore of X-Files, and puts players right on the scene to see if they can make the other players believe.
The game also comes with a second game mode, based on Jose Chung, from one of the most famous episodes “From Outer Space”. Other players play as witnesses to a paranormal event and Jose Chung must look at all the evidence they provide and create a complete narrative that ties all their stories together.
Planned as the first game in a series based on the X-Files, X-Files: Conspiracy Theory EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED, will be available March 2018, to coincide with the shows 25th Anniversary.
Do you think you have what it takes to uncover the truth amidst fiction? (or is it all the work of extraterrestrials?)
