From the mischievous minds behind Hatoful Boyfriend,Swords of Ditto & Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

 

Multi-talented, multi-limbed multifarious developer Mediatonic & irresistibly irreverent publisher The Irregular Corporation today announce that Murder By Numbers - quite possibly the only 90s-themed Hollywood detective game you’ll ever need - is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam) in 2020. 

Devised by game director Ed Fear (The Swords of Ditto, Heavenstrike Rivals), Murder By Numbers is a retro-inspired visual novel, injected with a colourful cast designed by the incomparable imagination of Hato Moa (Hatoful Boyfriend) and music by the legendary Masakazu Sugimori (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Viewtiful Joe, Ghost Trick). 

Los Angeles, 1996. Honor Mizrahi was just an actress on a hit TV detective show. But when her boss ends up dead just minutes after he fires her, she finds herself starring in her own murder mystery. Teaming up with SCOUT, a reconnaissance robot thrown away after a mysterious incident, she sets out to clear her name - and a new detective duo is born!

Investigate a range of cases and unearth clues with SCOUT’s sensors, cracking hidden nonograms and piecing together proof one pixel at a time. Use that evidence to interrogate weird and wonderful characters across TV studios, glitzy award shows, drag clubs, and more as you seek to uncover an overarching story of conspiracy, deception and - of course - MURDER!

For postulant private-eyes with a passion for pedal pushers who can’t wait to learn more about the mysteries of Murder By Numbers, the development team will be revealing more during an exclusive panel at EGX 2019 on Saturday, 19th October at 15:30pm.
