When I was in London last week, one of the games I saw which seemed incredibly promising was 4PM Game’s Criminel. It’s a gritty criminal investigation mystery set in 19th century Paris. The guys behind it are aiming to tell a cool story during a neat time period in history where so many things from an industrial and scientific perspective were rapidly changing. Through capturing evidence and taking photos in-game, players solve a evolving crime.
Here’s the two teaser trailers that have been released so far:
From the demo I got, I was pretty impessed. It’s still in development though, so it’s one of those things that while the little two minute demo they give is really rad, it’ll be interesting to see how that expands out to an actual full game.
