Funko Games has unveiled a new line of Indiana Jones-themed games, and fans of the beloved franchise are sure to be excited. The tabletop gaming studio has collaborated with Lucasfilm to create four new games that span the gamut from strategy games to party games.
One of the new games, Indiana Jones Cryptic, is an interactive mystery game that challenges players to follow clues from Dr. Jones’ journal to solve intricate puzzles and challenges based on the first three Indiana Jones movies. With logic, deduction, and creative thinking, players must navigate through tombs and temples while avoiding traps and enemies along the way. Indiana Jones Cryptic is the first in a new line of “Puzzles and Pathways Adventures” from Funko Games.
