CDXCDXCDX is a brand new Point’n’Click adventure game developed by the UK studio Preloaded.

“A sacrificial blade forged at the birth of the Roman Empire holds the key to an ancient and bloody conspiracy that threatens to erupt into the present day.

Stranded in 21st century Tunis, Adam Foster is plunged into a world of greed, betrayal and murder, centered on a Roman blade he supplied to the BBC’s ‘Ancient Rome’ series. But who has the blade and can the killers be stopped?”.

That’s how the story starts. The first of four episodes was released yesterday on and the others should follow soon. You will have to give your email to get a secret code to save your progress and being informed of the date of release of the next episodes (you can also play as a guest, but you won’t be able to same the game).

What caught my attention and got me excited about this game is the unique interactive-video interface used in this game. CDX is closer to a movie than a game, with real actors (Mark Letheren is Adam) playing the characters involved in this mysterious adventure.

Note that a broadband connection is essential to play this game and that “young viewers may find some scenes disturbing”. Some of you will probably find this first episode far too short, but that being said, CDX is a truly amazing experience and a must try! Have fun!

Update: in order to be able to play this game you must launch the application from a UK-based computer! So bad for the rest of the World! Sounds crazy, no?

Update 2: You can now play CDX from all over the world. Links updated. Thanks Pinkie!
