Help the restless soul of a murder victim find peace by tracking down the culprit in this paranormal investigation.
Paris, January 12, 2017 – Asmodee Digital, an international publisher and distributor of digital games and Playsoft, a world-renowned game developer, have announced the release of Mysterium for iOS, Android and PC. Mysterium, winner of numerous awards such as the Golden Geek and As d’Or 2016 Game of the Year, has been captivating players since its tabletop launch with more than 300,000 units sold worldwide. Created by Oleksandr Nevskiy and Oleg Sidorenko and published by Libellud, Mysterium has become a board game staple in many households. Today, thanks to the brilliant work of Asmodee Digital and Playsoft, the mystery of the Warwick Mansion ghost comes to life on iOS, Android and PC devices in an accurate and beautiful digital adaptation.
Mysterium is a cooperative deduction game that challenges players to solve a crime that was committed on the grounds of Warwick manor. One player takes on the role of a restless ghost who is tasked with revealing the guilty character to a team of psychics. The other players make up this team of psychics, receiving visions and interpreting them to the best of their abilities in order to narrow down the list of suspects. But, the time is ticking—if players take too long to discover the truth, the bridge between the mortal and supernatural worlds disappears and the tormented ghost must sadly wait another year for its soul to pass on!
“Mysterium was born out of love for the dark and unsettling, which the paranormal world perfectly encapsulates” says Alexandre David, Asmodee Digital Product Manager. “Our aim was to create a flawless digital adaptation for the fans and at the same time devise a mysterious and brooding game with fun and excitement that everyone could enjoy.”
Mysterium allows players from all over the world to investigate together in multiplayer mode and cooperate through an in-game chat that enables fellow players to point out visual clues on a card. Players can also share their visions with other psychics and approve or reject their choices with clairvoyance tokens. In Mysterium, up to 7 players can join together for fun and engaging games. And for those who wish to enter the manor alone, a story mode offers players the possibility to discover the culprit, the murder location, and the weapon through a several hours-long investigation filled with exciting twists and turns.
