Spend Some Majestic Nights Enjoying Conspiracy
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Epiphany Games has announced the debut season of its RPG series Majestic Nights will launch sometime later this year. The episodic role-playing-thriller is set in an alternate 1980s where all conspiracy theories, past and present, are true. Players help Cardholder and Cal unravel the secrets layered within a shadowy world of conspiracy.

“What people don’t understand about the moon landing is that all the conspiracy theorists are totally correct,” said Morgan Lean, CEO of Epiphany Games. “People walk around knowing all the facts and yet not seeing the Truth. So if the only way to package the actual reality of the situation is as entertainment, then it’s our responsibility to do exactly that!”

“We wanted to create a game that was simple to play and just let people dive into the story,” said Sam Jensen, lead designer. “The story and the world are the forefront of this game – they’re the star of the show and we want everything the game does to support that.”

You play as Cardholder: an intelligence operative who may or may not have been present at -- or even responsible for -- many of the biggest conspiracy events in history; and Cal, a humble Private Investigator whose own past is shrouded in secrets unknown even to herself.

With fast, light mechanics, the game has been developed to engross players in a shadowy world of conspiracy with an over-the-top 1980s aesthetic. Players will use wits, stealth and sometimes even a little force to investigate, explore, and acquire ever more clues for their big string-covered wall of conspiracies.

Season One of Majestic Nights takes place over six chapters, which work as a complete story or as standalone experiences. ‘Chapter Zero – Sunset After Dark’, a prologue to the series, will be made available for free. Each subsequent chapter of the core series will be paid, and season passes will also be available.

Control Command Escape Reviews Castle Of Illusion
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Control Command Escape has posted a new review of Castle Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, scheduled for release today by Feral Interactive. The fairytale platforming game is a re-imagining of the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive game of the same name and gives players the chance to take the role of Mickey as he sets off to save the kidnapped Minnie Mouse from her captor, the evil witch Mizrabel.

The levels are 2.5D, and look absolutely stunning, but this does mean that occasionally you'll have to move Mickey along the depth axis. Although the controls are a little less fluid in these instances (as they always are when unexpectedly taken to the third dimension), it does give rise to some novel gameplay moments and some puzzle-solving. One particularly memorable moment for me was a brief sequence involving a magic mirror, and there were plenty of those moments where I was impressed by the imagination on show in one way or another.
