The Council is a narrative-driven adventure game developed by Big Bad Games and published by Focus Home Interactive. Originally released back in 2018, the game takes players on a journey full of manipulation and intrigue.
In The Council, you play as a member of an 18th-century secret society who has been invited to a suspicious private gathering full of prestigious guests. Tensions mount as the story shifts to a murder mystery where no one can be trusted. One of the key gameplay features of The Council is its unique Social Influence system, which allows players to use resources to gain an edge during conversations. The more you come to understand the game’s rich cast of characters, the better your choices will be going forward.
