TBW on Steam
We have been working for over a year crafting the most complex, engaging project possible. There have been many major milestones in the history of The Black Watchmen:
- our Division 66 was greenlit by 7000 players
- our beta program has expanded to over 2000 agents in 64 countries
- our live events in Montreal, Boston, Louisville and The Hague.
We are thrilled to reach the next step in our journey, the Early Access.
We will be sending out an email to all of our backers shortly. Your email will include a unique Steam key and instructions on how to install the game so you can start playing right away. If you backed us, but did not receive a Steam Key email by the end of the day [June 25th, 2015], please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What to expect
Early access will include the first 6 missions in the client (mostly investigation and cypher based) and 1 community live event aka a real world mission.
The full game will include 19 in-client missions, 5 community live events, 5 hidden missions over a 3 month rollout with new missions every 2 weeks. Depending on your puzzle solving skills, the expected gameplay is about 35 hours.
Why the 3 month rollout?
We change the content and the nature of the missions based on your actions during community live events. For example: if you succeed or fail at a task, you will forever change the story of the game.
What will happen after 3 months?
All the in-client missions will remain replayed for a year.
Is the game played only online?
You can set a ‘clearance level’ in-game that dictates how the game may interact with you. WARNING: Not everyone will be contacted by phone or mail. A higher clearance level does not guarantee that an unmarked black van will show up in front of your house. :)
If you have questions, please reach us, we are extremely available!
