Focus unveils The Council

If you're into narrative adventure game, keep an eye on the episodic title The Council, annouced a few days ago by Focus Home Interactive and Big Bad Wolf. It feels like an Agatha Christie whodunnit mixed with occultism. Set in 1793 on an isolated island where the player, Louis de Richet member of a secret society, has been invited by a mysterious host. Other guests include Napoleon Bonaparte and George Washington. On top of choices/conséquences, the developer brings a Social Influence system, skills that you can develop based on your approach (diplomacy, playing detective or occultism). More details inside along with screens and the trailer. The Mad One, the first out of five episodes will be out in February 2018.

    SplitTongue @MikeManiac61: Screw that. The day such a controversial shit flick airs i'm going to move to a 3rd world country with no tv, cinemas or internet. I've had enough. (1 Hour ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @SplitTongue: that sounds funny though, but alas people would get their panties in a twist over it. (2 Hours ago)

    SplitTongue Not long ago, I've seen a funny fake movie poster of Martin Luther King being played by a white actor "for the sake of diversity". Can you imagine the backlash this would be getting? (2 Hours ago)

    SplitTongue Personally I would've reserved the "V" to BF V(ietnam) (2 Hours ago)
  • SplitTongue
    SplitTongue Tbh I think the backlash is deserved. Fans asked for a ww2 setting, not an alternative past ww2 setting. If they wanted their designers to get creative they should've sticked to 2143 maybe ? (2 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: No, that is my whole point. If they put women and minorities in there, and that becomes a controversy (Remember Sarkeesian), than I will care. No reverse sexism and racism bs. All equal. (2 Hours ago)

    aphex187 Watched the Frags video again which shows it in slow motion and it does look nuts but kinda intrigues me tbh. (2 Hours ago)
