About it:

Lord Winklebottom Investigates is a point and click adventure game full of perplexing puzzles, witty dialogue and lots of frightfully well-dressed animals.    

The game will challenge the player to solve the murder of Lord Winklebottom’s childhood friend, Admiral Gilfrey, in a case that will offer many hours of exploration, investigation, puzzle-solving and interrogation.

After failing the first crowdfunding attempt, the developer Cave Monsters came back strong with a smaller goal thanks to better quotes for services they wanted like translations. It still managed to get £12,551 this time around, which means two of the stretch-goals were achieved to add in some more areas to explore.

You can find the Kickstarter here, the demo on and also follow it for release on Steam. They've said the full release will also be on itch and other stores to be announced, with an expected date sometime around May next year.
