Launch Trailer:


El Cerrito, CA -- April 1, 2020-- Independent developer Pinhead Games, run by former Telltale senior developer Mark Darin, is happy to announce that “Nick Bounty and the Dame with the Blue Chewed Shoe” is now available digitally on PC and Mac computers for $9.99.  


Nick Bounty and the Dame with the Blue Chewed Shoe is an interactive comedic spoof on classic film noir detective movies. It's a little bit Maltese Falcon, a little bit CSI, and a little bit Naked Gun.


Sick of taking bottom barrel cases, smart-ass detective Nick Bounty sets out to solve the murder of a woman found half buried in a playground sandbox. As the case unfolds, he becomes entangled in an absurd mystery that threatens to end his life! Choose a partner, shake down suspects, gather the clues, analyze the evidence and take down a killer!


“At Pinhead Games, we believe in the unique way that narrative driven games can combine compelling storytelling and puzzling gameplay into a fully satisfying experience.  Nick Bounty and the Dame in the Blue Chewed Shoe aims to capture the feel of  those classic Point & Click adventures with a cinematic flair and healthy dose of humor!”
