The members of the Hell Club have been working on a nefarious plot for years. They intend to tear the fabric between dimensions and bring about Hell on Earth. The scary thing is: They’ve succeeded. The Seven Deadly Sins have made their way into our world, and the corruption they sow is spreading at an alarming rate. The City of Haven will be overrun in no time, that is, if they don’t have F.A.I.T.H.

The horror gaming masterpiece The Others by CMON, Guillotine Games, and Studio McVey is now available at your FLGS.

Eric M. Lang has created one of the most hotly anticipated gaming experiences in a long time, and now you have a chance to own it, right before Halloween!In The Others, one player controls one of the seven deadly sins and the rest team up as members of F.A.I.T.H., the only group that can stand in the way of an all-out apocalypse.

Each game of The Others plays out like a different horror movie, with the plot unfolding as you go. Depending on the Story Board you choose, the F.A.I.T.H. team will have different missions they must complete, while the Sins player tries to pick them off one at a time. With such a strong narrative voice driving the game play, each time you play The Others, it will be a totally new experience.
