Epiphany Games, the minds behind Runic Rumble and Frozen Hearth, have just announced their next game called Majestic Nights. The annoncment was made today and the game sounds pretty intriguing and is one to watch out for. The game is described as being an RPG thriller set in an alternate 1980’s where all conspiracy theories, both past and present, are a reality. Majestic Nights will be released in six episodes beginning in September of this year with a free prologue story that takes place before the six main episodes titled Chapter Zero. A new episode will be released each month until the finale is released on April 2015. Each episode is described as being one part of a complete story or each epoisde can be enjoyed as a standalone experience. Each episode can be purchased individually or all together within a season pass bundle, prices for either option have not yet been revealed. Majestic Nights is being referred to as season one, so if the game sells well, it seems that it could potentially become a brand new episodic franchise. Here is the official synopsis of the game that was revealed in the announcement for Majestic Nights:
“It’s the bright and brash 1980s… a world crammed with hidden intrigue and sinister plots, government cover-ups and alien sightings, CIA experiments and a truth that definitely is out there… a world which needs a fast-talking loose cannon right about now…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.”
Here is what Majestic Nights promises to deliver:
