Description

Majestic is an espionage thriller which must be downloaded over the Internet, casting you as the central figure in a government conspiracy. It is up to you to find clues and find out the truth.

The game is not a program in itself. It has no special effects, no multiplayer, nothing you'd expect in a usual game. Instead, it uses e-mail, telephone, fax, and AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) to contact you. You might receive a phone call at 3:00 AM about a contact. The game also gives you clues over the 'Net via video, audio, and websites designed specifically for the game.

Trivia

Shutdown

Because Majestic linked to relevant real-world news articles to fuel players' imaginations, Electronic Arts temporarily suspended the game following the September 11th terrorist attacks. It was permanently cancelled in in April 2002.
