I don’t know what SPYJINX is, but I know I really want to play it.
For one thing, it’s the next project from ChAIR Entertainment, the folks behind the Infinity Blade series (and more importantly, the oft-forgotten but brilliantly good Shadow Complex). It’s also the result of a collaboration with Bad Robot. That’s the little film company led by JJ Abrams — and by little, I mean they’ve produced everything from Lost and Super 8 to the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Both companies are playing things fairly close to the chest right now, confirming little about SPYJINX. We know it will be an espionage game with “dynamic world-building and RPG character development,” and that it will be coming to mobile (and PC) sometime in 2016.
J.J. says he first took a meeting with ChAIR two years ago, so it sounds like this has been in the works for awhile. Let’s all hope they’re drawing on his experiences with Alias; I hear that was a spy show to be reckoned with.
Keep an eye out for more info as it surfaces.
