Murder By Numbers – A Hollywood Whodunnit Coming 2020

Coming next year to PC and Switch, Murder By Numbers is a 90s-themed detective game from the minds behind Hatoful Boyfriend and Swords of Ditto.

From developer Mediatonic and director Ed Fear (Swords of Ditto, Heavenstrike Rituals) comes Murder By Numbers, a new detective mystery game coming to Steam and Nintendo Switch in early 2020.

In 1990s Los Angeles, TV detective show actress Honor Mizrahi becomes the focus of her very own murder mystery when her boss is killed just minutes after he fires her. Teaming up with a discarded reconnaissance robot named SCOUT, Honor must follow the clues that will lead to the real killer and clear her name.


Search for clues using SCOUT’s sensors, solve puzzles and hidden nonograms, then put together your evidence to crack the case. With a cast of colourful characters designed by Hato Moa (Hatoful Boyfriend) and music by Masakazu Sugimori (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Viewtiful Joe, Ghost Trick), Murder By Numbers is set to be one stylish adventure.

Murder By Numbers will be arriving on PC and Nintendo Switch early next year. For more information on the game, you can check out the announcement trailer below.
