Good news for those who have been waiting for the launch of X Marks the Spot, the interactive cyberpunk mystery game set in the world of Mandatory Upgrade: the release date has been set for Wednesday, March 9th, 2016. That’s less than a week away!

For the last nine months, we’ve been working hard in partnership with One More Story Games to produce a game worthy of the Mandatory Upgrade name. Using their new interactive story engine StoryStylus to create the game, X Marks The Spot will be made available on mobile, Facebook, and the web through their Story Worlds platform.

In X Marks the Spot, you’re Rachel Varley, a Special Agent working for the North American Security and Intelligence Agency. Your first assignment is to solve the mystery of a gruesome death at NASIA’s West Harbour Complex. To do so, you’ll need to use all of the futuristic technology at your disposal, not to mention your own considerable wits and investigative prowess. Are you up for the challenge?

Look for Mandatory Upgrade: X Marks the Spot at Story Worlds starting on Wednesday, March 9th or watch this website for the official launch announcement.
