The Three Pillars represent the three key "players" or components of a successful paranormal investigation; psychic, skeptic, and scientist. Demos and a tournament Friday evening introduced paranormal enthusiasts to the game which is described below:
THE THREE PILLARS is a fast-paced, witty game of checks and balances that celebrates the paranormal community while gently satirizing the drama that is often encountered within it. Assemble your team, visit haunted locations and submit evidence to close the cases - but be warned - not only must you deal with Murphy's Law, but with other paranormal teams investigating the same places as you - and chances are, they won't be helpful. Never before has Paranormal Division been so fun!
I got to not only speak with the two developers of the game, Brian J. Cano (tech manager for Syfy's "Haunted Collector") and Chris Mancuso ("SCARED!") but also some of the gamers who got to enjoy a first look at The Three Pillars. When I asked Brian why they decided to create the game, he noted that it was a way for paranormal investigators to "enjoy investigating even when not on an actual case" and also a way for gamers to enjoy a fast-paced game with familiar elements of the paranormal. He's quoted as saying, "When the paranormal world zigs, we zag."
"Currently, it's a stand alone game but expansions are already in the works.", says Cano. The game can be purchased for $29.99 by clicking here.
