The digital version of the widely popular Mysterium was slated to arrive on devices in December, but Asmodee has been hesitant after the digital version of Colt Express was torn apart for its poor AI and even poorer multiplayer. Apparently they have all the kinks worked out because we've just learned that Mysterium will be launching for iOS, Android, and Steam this Thursday.
As we know, Mysterium is a purely co-operative game for 2-7 players. One player takes the role of a helpful ghost who lives in a mysterious ancient manor. Other players are a group of psychics invited by the manor owner to solve the mystery of the place and bring peace to its residents, as any person who stays in the castle sees strange dreams.
The specialists in the supernatural were invited to try to understand what the ghost wants to tell and in case of success be honoured by one more victory and receive a generous reward. They have 7 days and 7 nights to reach their goal. If they succeed in time, everyone wins the game (including the ghost).
The game revolves around the collaboration of the investigators and it will be interesting to see how that works in a digital medium. We're not sure what time on Thursday we can expect Mysterium, but we do know it will be launching on iOS, Android, and Steam. I'll try to get a release post up when it goes live so you can have links to find it easily, and Brad will have a video "first look" up shortly after its release as well.
