It’s here! The port of Mysterium has manifested on Steam, iOS, and Android today. Asmodee Digital and Playsoft have been working hard to bring the award-winning, social deduction game to digital life. Even more great news: We’re giving away a couple copies in our contest below!
Created by Oleksandr Nevskiy and Oleg Sidorenko, the game is a murder mystery with a spooky twist. A ghost is trying to communicate details of a murder to a group of psychics. One player takes on the role of the ghost and uses images to convey information. It is up to the other players to interpret the images correctly and guess what information the ghost is trying to tell them (the weapon, location, and identity of the murderer).
“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.”
Jess: I took a crack at the game and it really is a nice version of Mysterium. Not only can you play in multiplayer with your friends, online multiplayer also play with with anyone around the world! And in Blitz mode, you can play as a psychic in shorter, harder games.
Jess: You can also speak with ghosts all by your lonesome with the solo and story line modes. I really like the solo mode as a nice introduction on how the game plays. As with the original board game, Mysterium can be quite challenging. When you are playing with people you know, you have the advantage of being familiar with how they think. The computer AI doesn’t give you any such insight. It is up to your Sherlockian (that’s a word, right?) deductive skills to figure out whodunit. If you are looking for a way to play more Mysterium, this is a fantastic option. The graphics are delightful, the music adds a great sense of moodiness, and I think the Steam version runs quickly and seamlessly on my Steam.
Mysterium is available now on iOS and Android for $6.99 and on Steam for $9.99. You can get your own copy by clicking the links below or by entering our giveaway! We are giving away Steam codes to 3 of our readers. The contest will run until Sunday 1/15/17 12AM EST. Enter now!
