'Sigma Theory' Livestream Gameplay Event on Twitch This Week

by Rainier on April 24, 2018 @ 8:30 a.m. PDT

The Sigma Theory is a single-player near-future espionage strategy game that takes place during a new cold war.

You will play as the head of your nation’s Sigma Division, racing other countries in a Manhattan Project-style competition to exploit a radical new scientific breakthrough. How far will you go to control the future?

In the near future, a paradigm-shifting scientific discovery looms over the world, promising radical new technologies. The world’s superpowers realize they could have the power to destroy the global financial system, wipe out entire countries or even gain access to immortality. However, this discovery — called “The Sigma Theory” — can only be harnessed by a handful of scientists.

You are placed at the head of your country’s Sigma division. Your objective is to ensure that it is your nation that reaps the benefits of Sigma Theory before anyone else. To achieve this you will have powerful resources at your disposal: a cadre of the world’s most elite covert agents, advanced tactical drones and, of course, your own skills in diplomacy and subterfuge.

It’s a cold war out there, one in which mankind must face up to its future.

We urge you to join the Sigma Division this Thursday for an exclusive event.

Special agents Michael, Fibre Tigre and Fernando will gather at Mi-Clos' bunker in Paris. Together, they've blackmailed a bunch of corrupt politicians to put their hands on a top-secret demo of Sigma Theory.

They've decided to reveal this ultra-sensitive material during a livestream on Twitch, this Thursday at 9.00pm CEST. They will take this opportunity to extensively play the game and discuss about its features. Also, this will be your chance to ask burning questions directly to the developers.

The public opinion needs to know what's going on behind the curtain!
Leaking those informations is your duty!
So share this to your friends!

Key Features:

  • Recruit a team from a roster of 50 unique spies and field agents and lead them as they infiltrate the enemy’s Sigma programs, abducting, blackmailing, and seducing scientists to your side.
  • Carefully manage your relationships with your superiors, other countries, powerful private lobbies, and even your own agents as you do whatever it takes to secure the future for your people.
  • There are 10 distinct playable nations, dozens of unique events and narrative paths, and several different endings based on the player’s decisions -- all crafted with Mi-Clos Studio’s signature eye for polish, detail, and aesthetic excellence.
  • With the emergent narrative from Sigma Theory’s complex web of character relationships, no two games will ever be alike.

Sigma Theory’s story is written by renowned French writer FibreTigre (the writer and co-designer of Out There) and the game’s soundtrack is composed by Siddhartha Barnhoorn (Antichamber, The Stanley Parable).

Sigma Theory is coming to PC, Mac, and mobile devices in 2018.
