I can think of no one better suited to solve mysteries than a giraffe in a top hat.
Charlotte Sutherland, solo Developer at Cave Monsters, announced today that her very first release, Lord Winklebottom Investigates, is coming to PC and Nintendo Switch.
Lord Winklebottom is a classic point-and-click adventure game with a lovely hand drawn style and jolly good sense of humour. Set in the roaring ‘20s, world renowned giraffe detective Lord Winklebottom is about to embark on one of his most challenging cases yet. After he receives an invitation to an isolate island that results in a grisly murder, he must race against time to track down the killer.
Lord Winklebottom is accompanied by his companion, Dr. Frumple as they investigate the murder of their old friend. Uncover clues, interrogate suspects and solves puzzles to find out what’s really going on at the mysterious island.
Cave Monsters is currently looking for £25,000 to help with a Kickstarter campaign that will last 30 days, February 25th to March 26th. The funds will go towards making sure that Lord Winklebottom Investigates is as high quality as it deserves.
The game is set to release for PC and Nintendo Switch in Q2 of 2020. You’ll find a demo of the game available on Itch.io.
