Speaking of the zaniness and weirdness of most Anime from my last article, Boyfriend Dungeon, I was intrigued by another game announced during Nintendo’s live-stream of Indie World Showcase. Investigate crime scenes with numbers and puzzles, and interrogate a range of colorful characters in this sassy murder mystery; Murder by Numbers! Developed by Mediatonic (Fall Guys) and published by Irregular Corporation (Paleo Pines), Murder by Numbers will be releasing in early 2020 on the Nintendo Switch and Steam (Wishlist here).
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 (one that’s darn cute) thrown away after a mysterious incident, she sets out to clear her name – and a new detective duo is born! The soundtrack is even composed by Masakazu Sugimori (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Ghost Trick and Viewtiful Joe).
