Cybernoir adventure game Chinatown Detective Agency released today on PC via Steam and Humble Store

From Press Release:

Corruption and mystery await…

Humble Games and General Interactive Co.’s retro cyber noir adventure game, Chinatown Detective Agency, is now available for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via the Humble Store and Steam. Additionally, the game will be available on Xbox Game Pass on Day 1.

In celebration of today’s launch, players can meet Private Investigator Amira Darma as she explores the seedy underworld of Chinatown Detective Agency’s pixelated dystopia in the new launch trailer here. Additional assets can also be found in the press kit here.

Inspired by the classic Carmen Sandiego games of the 80s and 90s, Chinatown Detective Agency is a mystery adventure game that will take you across Singapore and the world in hot pursuit of criminals, witnesses and clues. Do real-world research and investigation to solve puzzles and uncover leads, and manage your time and money to solve cases from clients both well-intentioned and nefarious. Along the way, untangle a web of conspiracies and plots that threaten to push the Lion City over the edge.

KEY FEATURES:

  • UNRAVEL A GLOBAL CONSPIRACY – Travel the globe from your base in Singapore in search of leads, and talk with dozens of uniquely voiced characters each with their own mysterious agendas.

  • BECOME THE INVESTIGATOR – The mysteries of Chinatown Detective Agency require real-world investigation. You’re not just playing a detective, you’re becoming one.

  • WORK SMART – Time is money, and the clock is always ticking. Make good use of the time you have and to keep your agency, and yourself, alive.

  • ASSEMBLE A TEAM – You’re going to need assistance. To succeed in investigating cases and solving mysteries, you’ll have to keep your business running and your staff happy.

  • LOSE YOURSELF IN THE FUTURE – Neon lamp-light reflected in pools of rainwater. Anti-government graffiti daubed across aging subways. The encroaching murk of riverside London.
