Once in a while, the Black Panel will take a risk. A risk so outlandish that it could spell our very end just for printing the words that are about to follow.
Our informants at Sydney based Epiphany Games know something. Something about various conspiracies that have occurred in the past few decades. The first of these revelations are presented in the debut season of its RPG series Majestic Nights, “an episodic role-playing-thriller set in an alternate 1980s where all conspiracy theories, past and present, are True.”
If you choose to read more, the Black Panel suggests that you dim the lights, shade the screen of your tablet or smart phone, and keep your wits about you. Morgan Lean, CEO of Epiphany Games admits that “People walk around knowing all the facts about conspiracies like the Moon Landing, but don’t yet see the Truth.” He believes that it is Epiphany’s dangerous responsibility to enlighten people via entertainment.
Players, nay… truth-seekers, will need to 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 is split into six chapters, which can be played as individual experiences or as a complete story. To entice new players, the first chapter will be free.
It’s probably a good time to reshape your tin foil hat, and get in touch with your inner Mulder or Scully in preparation of a late 2014 release on PC, Mac, iOS and Android.
