The Council Cheats & Cheat Codes for Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Windows, and More

The Council is an interactive mystery graphic adventure game developed by Big Bad Wolf. The game was released in 2018, with its five episodes released every two months starting in March. Overall, the game was well received by fans who praised its story, choices, and art direction. However, there was criticism for the lack of polish for the character animations and graphics, which were less than ideal.  

The Council Premise

The story follows Louis de Richet, a French man who is a part of a secret society known as the Golden Order. Louis is searching for his mission mother, who was lost after the two were captured due to stealing a book. The Golden Order consists of many well-regarded and powerful individuals interested in historical and occult artifacts. Players will find many real-life paintings, books, and historical figures, such as Napoleon, in the game.
