Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like being an extremely wealthy business tycoon with immense power?
Well, you might get a bit of that feeling with Sigma Theory, the new game by developer Mi-Clos Studio who were behind the award-winning Out There.
It’s a single player espionage strategy, set in the not-too-distant future during a new cold war. The power resource known as Sigma Theory has the ability to collapse the global financial system, wipe out entire countries or gain immortality. It’s up to you to take control of it and become the superpower before the other global superpowers.
The game features the following, from the developer:
- A bold new take on the espionage game genre, set during a future global cold war
- Recruit your team from 50 unique spies and field agents
- Turn-based strategical and tactical-level gameplay
- Order your spies to conduct operations all over the world
- Experience tense and thrilling exfiltration missions where you guide your agents on a covert operation to extract high-value targets from foreign cities
- Infiltrate the enemy’s Sigma programs, abducting, coercing, and seducing scientists to your side
- Deploy your drone fleet to turn operations in your favour
- Deceive or cooperate with your rivals during diplomatic summits
- Use your diplomatic skill to balance the demands of multiple relationships: with your agents, with your superiors, with powerful private lobbies, and with your counterparts around the world
- Discover 30 world-changing technologies
- Hoard Sigma Theory discoveries for yourself to gain an edge in the cold war — or share them for the benefit of all mankind — or sell them to powerful private lobbies bent on preserving the old world order
- Experience a dynamic emergent narrative where every decision matters and the complex web of character relationships means that no two games of Sigma Theory will ever be the same
- Multiple distinct endings that respond to the player’s ethical and practical decisions throughout the game
Sigma Theory’s satirical nature could be a game that speaks of the time, tackling themes of political and social divide, the political business model and the paranoia of another cold war.
The title is set for a 2018 release on iOS, Mac and PC.
