Council, The Big Bad Wolf / Focus Home Interactive 2018

In 1793, players take the role of secret society member Louis de Richet after his invitation to a private island off the shores of England by the enigmatic Lord Mortimer. Joining him are a number of high profile guests, including Napoleon Bonaparte and President of the newly-formed United States of America, George Washington. The strange nature of this private reception goes beyond just the prestigious guests, as Richet's own mother has recently gone missing on the island, while each and every one of the colorful cast seems to have their own hidden agendas. Each and every one of the colorful cast seems to have their own hidden agendas. It'll be up to you to figure out what happened, but you must trust no one while uncovering dire truths – no matter the cost to mind and body. Along the way, you will be forced to make hard-hitting decisions, develop an array of skills and directly impact how the story unfolds. Will you attempt to solve issues with diplomacy, delve into occultism to expand your historical and scientific knowledge, or play detective and see what others do not perceive? The choice is yours, with over 15 different skills available to tailor to your approach. Unlike most narrative adventures, there are permanent, long-lasting consequences to your decisions as you plunge into a tale of intrigue and manipulation in the style of a classic murder mystery. Rather than simply picking from stock dialogue options and binary action choices, this game revolves around maneuvering through character encounters using the unique Social Influence system. During your many personal conversations, skills and limited resources can be used to gain the upper hand and achieve the desired outcome. Players will be rewarded for their knowledge of each character’s psychological vulnerabilities and immunities, as well as their preparations made during prior exploration and investigation. Failure in such confrontations, however, does not end the game – nor does it allow you to retry. Instead, all decisions and their repercussions are final, and may even result in persistent physical disfigurements or mental traits that help or hinder the rest of the player’s adventure. So choose wisely, as the results will forever alter the life of Louis de Richet, of those around him, and shape history as we know it. There will be five installments - Episode 1: The Mad Ones (Mar 13).
