Majestic Nights: Season One is a role-playing thriller set in an alternate eighties where every conspiracy is real

By , on July 25, 2014

It's the eighties. The Berlin Wall is tumbling down, Live Aid is helping to raise money for the poor, Jason Donovan is dating Kylie Minogue, and everything is right with the world.

Except that every conspiracy story ever conceived is actually true, we live in a completely fabricated illusion of what is real, and all this is perpetrated by Cardholder, an intelligence officer at a shadowy government organisation.

This is the weird and wonderful world of Majestic Nights: Season One, the teaser trailer for which has just been released.

Scant few details are available at the moment, but players will apparently "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" in this episodic RPG thriller.

Morgan Lean, CEO of developer Epiphany Games said "what people don't understand about the moon landing is that all the conspiracy theorists are totally correct. People walk around knowing all the facts and yet not seeing the Truth. So if the only way to package the actual reality of the situation is as entertainment, then it's our responsibility to do exactly that".

Which, of course, is bollocks.

However, I'm sure that this level of conviction from Epiphany Games will lead to a convincing (and potentially captivating) work of fiction.

Majestic Nights: Season One is coming to iOS and Android (plus PC and Mac) in late 2014. Chapter zero, titled Sunset After Dark will be free, though the proceeding five chapters will be paid. No word on price yet, but buying a season pass will be an option, which we imagine will provide a discount rate.
