ACTiVATED has released the Indie game “The Detail Episode 1 Where the Dead Lie” for MacOSX and Linux
Description: The Detail, a crime noir adventure in a modern American city.
We are combining the emotional impact of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead with the themes of a realistic crime drama like HBO’s The Wire, delivered with our own unique visual style inspired heavily by graphic novels. This is city where cases matter, clearance rates matter, and on a good day even justice matters.
Controlling the actions of a bitter veteran detective investigating a brutal gangland murder and a reformed criminal trying to protect his family, the player is forced to make tough choices and deal with the resulting consequences of those moral dilemmas. The gameplay focuses on storytelling through point n’ click gameplay mixed with interactive comics, and is completed by a professional audio track.
- Multiple branching storylines driven by the player’s choices
- Interrogate or be interrogated
- Multiple playable characters
- Run homicide investigations or run from homicide investigations
- Balance between politics, justice and the law
