Charlotte Sutherland, solo Developer at Cave Monsters, has revealed that her first release, Lord Winklebottom Investigates, is heading to Nintendo Switch next year. If you haven't already watched the trailer above, get on it pronto.
The game features classic point-and-click adventure gameplay, all wrapped up in a world full of humour and particularly comical characters. It's set in the roaring '20s, where a giraffe detective is all set to embark on a new case upon a mysterious, isolated island. The game's press release promises "a grisly murder and a race against time to track down the killer", as well as the following description:
"Join Lord Winklebottom and his steadfast companion, Dr Frumple as they investigate the murder of their old friend. Uncover clues, interrogate suspects and solve puzzles to crack the case. Our daring detective will put his neck on the line to capture the killer and uncover the horrifying dark secret at the heart of the Isle of Barghest!"
Cave Monsters has actually placed the game on Kickstarter, with a crowdfunding campaign hoping to generate £25,000 to "get the game fully voice acted to a high standard, collaborate with a composer to create a unique, 1920’s inspired soundtrack", and also to help with "programming assistance and additional localisation".
The game is currently scheduled to launch for Nintendo Switch in Q2 2020.
