Crop Tops and Corpses: Murder By Numbers takes you on a mystery-laden 90s trip

Pidgeon wooers and independent developer Mediatonic and beloved indie publisher The Irregular Corporation are proud to announce that their weird and wonderful detective puzzler Murder by Numbers will be launching in Japan and the West on Switch on March 5 and Steam on March 6.

A series of strange murders? Extreme levels of sass? Cargo pants and chunky highlights? Ed Fear (Hatoful Boyfriend, Swords of Ditto, Heavenstrike) has sharpened his pen to ensure they’re all included in this ultimate “whodunnit”! You can check out the paisley blazers and the pop tunes in this trailer right here.

Los Angeles, 1996. Things are finally taking off for TV detective Honor Mizrahi as her show starts to pull in sky-high ratings, but behind all the glitz and the glamour are several peculiar deaths – and Honor’s now found herself as the real-life prime suspect. Join Honor and SCOUT – Murder By Number’s resident emoji-robot genius – in interrogating a cast of quirky characters, solving pixel puzzles and gathering clues across a range of glamorous venues. It’ll be up to you to get to the bottom of this bizarre conspiracy… with some serious 90s flair!

Decode the mystery brought to life by zany characters designed by Hato Moa, the creative legend behind Hatoful Boyfriend. Travel back to the 90s with music composed by Masakazu Sugimori (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney,  and Ghost Trick).

Murder by Numbers will be available on Steam and Switch for £11.99. It will be available for pre-order on Nintendo Switch beginning February 20 at a 10% discount, and to celebrate the release of the game it will also be discounted 10% for the first week of release from March 5-11. The Steam version will have a 10% discount for its launch week from March 6-12.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
