Based on the popular Clue-inspired and supernatural-themed murder-mystery physical card game, Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game is set in the once-quiet town in Warwick, Scotland where a series of murders had taken place. The odd thing is though, the culprits, even when caught red-handed, do not remember anything leading up to the murder and are not aware of what they have done. This intriguing case has attracted the interest of renowned psychic, Conrad MacDowell, his equally-distinguished colleagues, and his new apprentice, a young, local journalist named Nathan Crowley.
Play as Nathan as you try to solve this supernaturally-charged mystery before more murders are committed by the unwitting townsfolk by putting your observational and guessing abilities to the test in Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game!
A series of murders rocked the once-quiet town in Warwick, Scotland, and the police are completely baffled. Although they have managed to catch several of the perpetrators red-handed in a murder, the culprits all asserted that they didn’t remember anything and were not aware of what they’ve done. This intriguing case has attracted the interest of renowned psychic, Conrad MacDowell, his equally-distinguished colleagues, and his new apprentice, a young, local journalist named Nathan Crowley.
Playing as Nathan, you’ll need to help Conrad and his fellow psychics, as you all attempt to identify the suspects behind as many murders as you can and hopefully secure enough clues that will lead you to the real culprit that had been possessing people and making them do things they may never have done.
The gameplay in Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game is pretty easy to grasp but it can be really tricky to win. Basically though, what you’ll need to do as a psychic is to commune with the ghost via a seance and through the visions you get, you’ll need to help him or her identify the murderer, the crime scene, and the murder weapon (stage by stage in that order). It plays out a bit like a game of Clue, but with a more supernatural twist.
However, these vision cards that you get are incredibly abstract and it can be quite difficult to guess what the ghost is actually trying to convey. Of course, the variety of cards available, especially if you purchase any of the game’s many additional content, is also sufficient enough to keep the game interesting and challenging for most. Because of this, you may need to use a lot of deep thinking in addition to having a healthy dollop of luck.
Once you’ve got your answer though, you mustn’t submit your answer yet despite the fact that you’ve only got 2 minutes to input an answer. With the remaining time you have, you can tap into the other psychic in the team and see what their selections are. Then, you can drag and drop the little ticks or Xs at the top right corner of the screen to the portrait of each psychic depending on whether you think they’ve guessed correctly or not.
If you’re correct, you’ll earn extra Clairvoyant Points which will help you tremendously at the end of the game since the points will determine how many hints you’ll get. However, if you’re unsure, it might be best to keep those limited ticks and Xs for later rounds. After all, your supply of ticks and Xs will only be replenish at round 4, so make sure to make the most of the few you have.
What if you’ve guessed incorrectly? Well, if that happens, you simply need to guess again. Most of the time, you’ll get a little bit of help every time you failed a round while other psychics in the team have moved on to the later stages – the game will eliminate suspects, locations and weapons that have been correctly identified by others. As you might have guessed, different psychics will have different answers to find. In other words, if two psychics chose the same answer, it is inevitable that at least one of them will be incorrect and have to guess again.
That aside, the cards in this game can be a bit small, especially if you’re playing the game on your smartphone. Due to this, you can actually tap and hold to bring up the magnifier which will help enlarge any tiny detail in a card that you might have missed.
Once all the 3 clues have been found, you should have multiple scenarios (sets of suspects, locations and weapons) reconstructed by each of the psychics in the team. The ghost will then send you 3 visions – each of which correspond with the actual suspect, location and weapon. Needless to say, you’ll need to identify the correct set.
Now, if your Clairvoyant Points is low, you may find yourself having only 1 out of 3 clues to base your final guess on... which admittedly, isn’t much to go on. Not to mention, unlike the previous rounds, you have only 1 chance to get this right. It’s all or nothing!
Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game also has 2 game modes for you to enjoy playing, namely the story mode, which basically doubles as a tutorial of sorts, and the multiplayer mode that can be further separated into various sub-modes including Quick Play, Online, Blitz (shorter time limit), Pass and Play, and solo custom games with AIs.
As interesting as this game may sound, I personally find that playing as a Ghost to be a whole lot more fun and challenging than playing as a psychic. This is mainly because you’ll quickly realize that your train of thought may not be shared by the people or AIs playing as psychics in the game and hence, you’ll definitely need to do a whole lot more deep thinking. Thankfully, ghosts don’t have a time limit and can take their sweet time in deciding which vision cards to send.
The challenge of all of this is further amplified by the fact that you have limited vision cards to use. Even with the free Crow that will help you swap out cards you don’t need for random, new ones, you’ll still find it rather difficult to have all the cards you need to make the psychics, be them AIs or actual human players, get all the correct answers. That being said, you can see the psychics’ guesses in real time, so that’s pretty cool. You can see the results of the visions you sent pretty much instantly.
Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game has a multiplayer aspect, and this is where you’ll be able to engage with the community in the game. The multiplayer game mode has a chat system in it which allows you to discuss with your fellow psychics – Players playing as Ghosts are silent and cannot communicate aside from sending visions. However, this cooperative part of the gameplay ends at the final round of the game where the final winners will be decided.
With its origins being a physical card game, Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game has some really nice hand-drawn art. I’d say the quality of the visuals in this game does its physical counterpart justice. The soft yet eerie background music is also a really nice touch. It sets the chilling atmosphere of a supernatural-themed game perfectly.
All in all, Mysterium: A Psychic Clue Game is an excellent digital version of its original physical game that you can play while on the go since it’s also available on mobile. This game managed to capture the challenge of having to really wreck your brain while trying to figure out what the ghost wanted to show you. Despite the rather grim atmosphere which is inherent in any paranormal games, this can be a really entertaining game for a family with slightly older kids as well.
