[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Montreuil (France) , January 17 th 2013. After a noted incursion on both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, detective Red Johnson is back on PC with two high-risk investigations. Reflexes and quick-thinking are required for the players to save the day and overcome a long journey rife with dangers.

In “Red Johnson’s Chronicles” , the adventure fans meet the private detective Red Johnson and comb the crime scenes, searching for clues and using the collected items to progress in the investigation. In the corrupt city of Metropolis, they regularly need to solve puzzles in order to initiate a specific action (picking a padlock, retrieving a videotape…).

“Red Johnson’s Chronicles” is also an investigation that leads the players throughout the corrupt city where they shall interrogate potential suspects and witnesses. Clear-headedness is the key to choose the right questions within a limited time.

Sometimes, the game also requires the players to press within the given time some buttons to carry out reflex actions, such as dodging a revolver shot , adding dynamism to the adventure.

An informer can reveal to the players some more or less useful clues so that they can move on in the adventure and not be stuck at some point.
