By - | Views: 14,713

Casebook 1899 - The Leipzig Murders is a fresh upcoming retro pixel-art point and click adventure, with a brand new demo available to try now. Homo Narrans Studio are crowdfunding it now on Kickstarter, with a €15,000 goal and to entice people in the demo features the first full case to play through.

"Immerse yourself in an industrial metropolis on the threshold of the 20th century and solve four exciting murder cases as detective Joseph Kreiser. You work for the police of a German boomtown in the late industrial age and find yourself in a classist society where workers, women and other marginalised groups fight for their say, often leading to violent crime. In a time of upheaval, you may be looking for answers but come across human abysses."

Looks a bit like The Slaughter: Act One, I hope the dev will make Act Two some day now (6 years in the making).

That would be Visionaire. Daedalic has been using it often.
