It's supposed to be released this July, but still no pictures of the finished game. Anyone heard of any recent news on how the game looks and maybe also a rule book?

Hmm starting to look like a straight to video release, very little hype, bugger all component wise to drool over and even though July has 21 days left nothing to make us believe it's close to release.

First pictures came out today, but there is still little information about the game, which is worrying.

It IS weird. Maybe it's because IDW is still new to the gaming world and doesn't understand how the marketing works? With comics, you do want to keep most of what's about to happen under wraps, but with board games, your customers are expecting to have already read the rules before they drop a dime. This is ESPECIALLY worrisome with a game that has a marketing tie-in, because it just screams that you're trying to take advantage of your customers by exploiting the fanboys before anyone can point out that the emperor has no clothes.

I just pilfered those from IDW's Facebook page. Better than nothing, I guess!

I wouldn't post other people's pictures, unless I had permission first.

I'll be sure to duck into the bushes when shadowy men in IDW jackets come by.

I mailed them over facebook over the importance on putting updates here on BGG. Hopefully it will do something.

on my wishlist but won't dare buy the game until some reviews are out first... esp since we can't even get a proper preview.

There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

I'm right there with you! I would have expected one of the "big" reviewers to have got their hands on it by now.

I think that ends up being the problem, the hype starts to fizzle and the one person wants a review, so more people get cagey.

And obviously if its coming out this month it aint looking good.

Maybe some condition of the licensing was an embargo on reviews much like they do for video games. I could see some big wig who isn't in touch with the board gaming industry making that decision because it's the hot thing.

My concern is the card art, the box art is amazing but on one of the cards I saw "trust no one" it was awful, looked like some cheap manga.

I am reserving judgement, it is hard to judge a game from only two cards. Very excited for the release.

Definitely still excited as I am a massive X-Files fan, but if your going to show some cards surely show the best of the art straight away.

The pic of the gameboard..does have 'draft' in the link so hopefully not the final version. Lots of pastel colors...reminds me more of easter colors..not very ominous like the first 3 seasons. We'll see.....

I did see posted somewhere that IDW are still waiting from approvals from Fox regarding certain elements which is delaying the process. I cannot find where I read that now, but if true would explain the lack of game image goodness we are waiting for.
