You are agent Craig Willmore, assigned to accompany agents Muller and Scully as they investigate the FBI's X Files; unexplained and unsolved files that are shrouded in mystery and the unknown.

The environment in the game is a seamless construction of high quality video generated "on the fly" as you make decisions and move throughout locations. The exchange of first and third person views helps to create a cinematic ambience and the script, performances, design and technology match those set by the TV series.

The interface for the X Files game has been created using Virtual Cinema, Hyperbole's proprietary interactive game engine.
