When demons, the occult, and cultists are hanging out in your neighbourhood, who you gonna call? Forget the Ghostbusters. You need Francis McQueen of the Darkside Division to come snooping around.
McQueen is the star of The Darkside Detective, a new classic-styled point-and-click adventure game, which combines horror themes with its distinct sense of humour.
It has you follow McQueen and his mate, Officer Dooley, as they investigate six bizarre cases, as is their calling. You can expect to come across supernatural beings, unusual eldritch encounters, and plenty of missing cats. It’s all rendered in charming pixel art, too, which it has to be said, helps to obscure the spooks so that your imagination fills in the details.
Plus, there’s music from Ben Prunty, how has previously composed for games including FTL: Faster Than Light and Gravity Ghost. His tunes help to bring both the dark events and the buddy comedy that rises and falls across the six cases you investigate.
