Today, Ireland-based developer Spooky Doorway announced that its point-and-click adventure game, The Darkside Detective, is set to launch on July 27th for PC, Mac, and Linux.
Revealed in 2015, Darkside Detective was notably nominated for the Best Script Award at the Zebbies 2016 and has been praised for its 90’s atmosphere and fourth-wall breaking humor.
In the game you join Detective McQueen and Officer Dooley as they investigate 6 bizarre cases: from the occult to the supernatural. Here’s an elevator pitch via the developer itself
Where cultists crawl, where demons dwell, where the occult… occults? you’ll find Detective Francis McQueen, the sole member of the criminally underfunded Darkside Division. When evil darkens the doorsteps of Twin Lakes City – hell, even when it just loiters around shop fronts or hangs out in shady alleyways – he’s there, ready to investigate the cases that nobody else will. He is The Darkside Detective.
The game notably boasts an OST by Ben Prunty of FTL fame. What the game doesn’t have is a price-point. But it does have a new release date trailer, which you can check out below:
