The Sun at Night creator announces investigation game Murder at Mystery Manor

New, 2 comments

Minicore Studios, creator of the space dog adventure game The Sun at Night, will release a multiplayer mystery game for Windows PC called Murder at Mystery Manor, founder John Warren announced today.

Murder at Mystery Manor is an investigation game featuring "a mansion, a cocktail party and nefarious acts." Players in the game are given different roles to play, with one person being tagged as a murderer.

"The murderer then has to eliminate a given target without being seen by any other party-goers," Warren wrote. "It's then the duty of the party-goers to identify the killer unanimously. Communication, evidence gathering, and keen senses will make you a good investigator — carelessness may make you a bad investigator."

The game is being built in Unity and is "perfect for an Early Access [or] open-alpha" situation, Warren continued. The developer is not ready to announce other platforms or an official timeline for the game yet, though it hopes to have a playable build available by the summer.

Minicore recently announced that the sequel to The Sun at Night, The Sky Below, will launch for Linux, Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U and Windows PC in October. The game continues the story of Laika, a dog wearing robotic armor trying to set things right following the death of Soviet Union leader Joseph Stalin.
