The plot thickens in Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders with the launch of a brand new trailer. This first full-length preview for the point-and-click mystery adventure game shows events turning a little bit darker, and bloodier, than what we have seen in previously released footage.
Based on the Agatha Christie novel of the same name, The ABC Murders follows Belgian detective Hercule Poirot as he attempts to solve the titular case. It appears that developer Artefacts Studio and publisher Microïds have created a solid mix of puzzle-solving and storytelling, capturing the spirit of Christie’s classic mystery novels and successfully emulating the mind of its quick-witted protagonist.
Having previewed the game earlier in the month, I must say that this trailer, with its flash cuts and blood-splattered titles, makes the game’s tone seem a lot more serious than I found it to be while playing the first hour. You can read the preview of the game here.
Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders is released in Europe on February 4th and in North America on February 23rd for PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One. The PC and Mac versions are now available for pre-order at a discount price.
