Sometimes murders happen in the animal kingdom, and who can solve it? Doctor Doolittle is a doctor, not a detective, and Sherlock doesn't speak bee or dog or whatever. So it's up to the animals, and in particular, Lord Winklebottom — a dapper detective who also happens to be a giraffe.

Lord Winklebottom Investigates is a point-and-click adventure game set in the 1920s, with classic irreverent British humour reminiscent of Fawlty Towers and Blackadder and tiny fancy outfits for all the animals. It's made by a one-woman team, consisting entirely of Charlotte Sutherland, whose title credits in the past include LittleBigPlanet 3 and LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. This is Sutherland's first solo game.

We had the game on our "Best Indies Coming In 2022" list earlier this year, and now we have an actual release date: July 28th, 2022! The game will be out on PC, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch for £15.99 / $18.99 / €18,99.
