The awaited sequel of Murder in the Hotel Lisbon has arrived!
Portuguese indie studio Nerd Monkeys announced today the release of Detective Case and Clown Bot in: The Express Killer, previously unveiled during this year’s E3 conference. The game acts as the sequel to Murder in the Hotel Lisbon (2013). This pixel art Point & Click adventure tells the story of Detective Justin Case who, paired with his trusted partner Clown Bot and a kid called Billy will be tasked with solving a series of murders aboard a train.
Having sold 120,000 copies worldwide, Mured in the Hotel Lisbon was a great indie success, and Nerd Monkeys hopes to get the same deal of interest from players with this awaited sequel. Detective Case and Clown Bot in The Express Killer is available as of today for Windows, Mac and Linux at a price of 14.99€ / £12.99 / $14.99.
“Someone has been killing passengers on the express train from Lisbon to Porto, every single day since Tuesday! Someone needs to stop the killer! Once again Garcia is not up to the task (was he ever?) and reluctantly calls upon his old friend and his strange flying sidekick: the mythical Detective Case and the unmistakable Clown Bot. Together, they will board on the express train, bother everyone by asking annoying questions, pick up everyone’s belongings and call them clues, drink and eat for free at the bar (because they are working after all!) and if all goes well, find and stop the express killer.”, reads the game’s press release published today.
If you’re a fan of point-and-click adventures, as well as of detective mystery games, then Detective Case and Clown Bot in The Express Killer might be just what you’re looking for in a year that has already delivered two great indie titles in this deparment: The Red Strings Club and Unforeseen Incidents.
Check out the game’s Steam page or its official website for more information on both games in the Detective Case saga. You can pick it up through Valve’s platform, as well as from Humble Store, IndieGala and GamersGate.
