As the intrigue surrounding true crime and detective stories continues to grow in popular culture, EQ Studios has unveiled its latest gaming contribution to this genre. Following the success of The Painscreek Killings, the studio is proud to present Scene Investigators, a captivating detective game available now on Steam for $24.99 USD.
A new challenge for aspiring detectives
Set in a near-futuristic backdrop, players assume the identity of an investigative apprentice, striving to earn their official license. To achieve this, they must delve into a collection of meticulously reconstructed case files, each offering its own set of challenges. With 8.5 diverse crime scenes to unravel, players are in for an analytical treat.
The essence of Scene Investigators lies in its immersive environment. Gamers must navigate these expertly crafted crime scenes, unearth clues, theorize motives, and rely heavily on logical reasoning to reconstruct the events leading up to each crime. Tailored for those who revel in detective cinema, real-life crime stories, and escape room puzzles, the game offers a perfect blend of investigation and intrigue.
An emphasis on observation and deduction
Unlike traditional detective games that often come with hints or narrative assists, Scene Investigators pushes players to rely solely on their observational skills, critical thinking, and intellect. Drawing inspiration from real-life crime-solving challenges, players will recognize the game’s “70/30 Principle”. This principle underscores the fact that while 70% of evidence might be readily available, the remaining 30% requires a blend of intuition, logic, and shrewd guessing.
