'Majestic' Web Site Debuts
10:37 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

For quite some time Electronic Arts and developer Anim-x have been 'leaking' information about Majestic, an original approach to gaming which promises to provide a truly interactive experience on a scope never attempted before. Using a combination of everyday technologies (fax, AOL Instant Messenger, telephone, e-mail and more) this game claims to be an engrossing interactive experience based on a global conspiracy. While information about the title was leaked in hints and mysterious press releases previously, now the official site itself is online and has many details.

Although the requirements for this 'game' list a Windows PC as the reccomended hardware, after our own research we don't see any reason why this game wouldn't be Mac OS-compatible; there isn't even a CD-ROM to buy, as the game takes place entirely online and is subscription-based. All the technologies used in the game (AIM, RealPlayer, Flash) are entirely cross-platform and other techniques the game requires (telephone calls, fax, web research) are obviously platform-agnostic as well. We've contacted the development team to confirm all of this, of course, but we don't expect any problems.

So, if a game that is based on a global conspiracy and might result in midnight phonecalls from shady characters interests you, visit the Majestic web site and learn more. A preview of the game will happen in the near future, followed by the opportunity to subscribe to the full version.
