Be a Giraffe Detective! Yes, You Read That Correctly

Haven’t you always wanted to be a detective, solving cases and drinking tea and standing around making revelatory speeches whilst a gathered throng listens in amazement at your undeniable genius? And haven’t you always wondered what it would be like to be, well, a different type of mammal?

Well, Charlotte Sutherland of Cave Monsters has her very first release as a solo developer on the docket for release in 2020, and in it you’ll be able to live these dreams and more. Lord Wrinklebottom Investigates is a point-and-click adventure title filled with humor, bizarre characters, and none other than a giraffe detective investigating “a grisly murder” in a “race against time to track down the killer.”

The game is set in the 1920s on a lonely island, and according to the press release, players will “join Lord Winklebottom and his steadfast companion, Dr Frumple as they investigate the murder of their old friend. Uncover clues, interrogate suspects and solve puzzles to crack the case. Our daring detective will put his neck on the line to capture the killer and uncover the horrifying dark secret at the heart of the Isle of Barghest!”

The game is currently on Kickstarter with intention to raise a little over $43K CDN. If funded, the game will be “fully voice acted to a high standard” and a composer would be hired to “create a unique, 1920s inspired soundtrack.” Also on the slate is assistance with programming and “additional localization.”

Check out the trailer if you haven’t already! (No, really. You definitely should.)
