This week, The Irregular Corporation and Mediatonic announced a new single-player puzzle game on the way called Murder By Numbers. The game is designed to be much akin to Phoenix Wright, in a sense, where you play as detectives solving cases by completing puzzles. With a style that looks like a dating sim. You can read more about it below and check out the trailer, as the game is slated for a 2020 release on Steam.
Los Angeles, 1996. Honor Mizrahi was just an actress on a hit TV detective show. But when her boss ends up dead just minutes after he fires her, she finds herself starring in her own murder mystery.
