An Estonian company develops an official X-Files game

Creative Mobile, an Estonian video game developer, has, in cooperation with 20th Century Fox, developed an official game, based on the hit television series, The X-Files.

“The X-Files: Deep State” is a mystery investigation game that will coincide with the release of the TV series’ 11th season in the first quarter of 2018, and also celebrates the 25th anniversary of The X-Files series.

It’s an officially licenced X-Files game, developed by Creative Mobile and FoxNext games, a video game and virtual reality division of 20th Century Fox, a well-known American film studio and the producer of The X-Files series.

The game will be available on the Apple App Store, Google Play and Facebook. According to Brandon Marsh, the game’s creative manager at Creative Mobile, it’s already soft-launched in Estonia on Google Play.

In “The X-Files: Deep State”, players assume the role of an FBI Special Agent, investigating mysterious crime scenes that defy explanation. They must uncover hidden clues, collect evidence, solve puzzles, interrogate witnesses and suspects to solve the case.

The game is free to play with in-app purchases.

Creative Mobile is an Estonian video game developer and publisher based in Tallinn. The company was founded in 2010 and quickly evolved into a leading game studio.
