If you know the truth is out there, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll love The X-Files: Deep State, a new game based on the popular television senes.
In this mix of hidden-object puzzles and crime scene investigation, you’ll encounter cases steeped in the paranormal and extraterrestrial, all leading to a global government conspiracy. Stylish hand-drawn cinematics drive the episodic narratives.
You won’t find Mulder or Scully here. Instead, you assume the role of an all- new agent rising through the ranks. Customise your avatar and then start interrogating suspects and scouring locations for hidden clues.
The game is quite accessible. You’re presented with multiple dialogue choices for interacting with the characters; simply tap the screen to collect evidence. There’s also an assortment of simple puzzle mini- games. For example, rearrange the torn pages of a letter to reveal its secrets.
Catching the culprits – especially when they’re monsters and aliens won’t be easy, but you’ll have a blast trying.
