The X-Files: Unrestricted Access was a PC game developed by Fox Interactive to tie in with the show.


It was a game-style database that purported to give users 'unrestricted access' to the X-Files cases. The 'game' had the premise that you had hacked into a 'highly-classified' secret Government Web site enabling you access to all Mulder and Scully's investigations. It had downloadable content to keep the game up to date, but it was very short-lived as the content updates were not very frequent.
