Operation Backlog Completion 2024

I wasn’t able to post this yesterday because I was finishing up a freelance project. Sorry for the delay!

Anyway, today we’re taking a quick break from spookiness to talk about a newly-announced detective game called Murder by Numbers.

Murder by Numbers is being described as a “90s-themed detective game,” and it stars an actress who teams up with a robot to clear her name after she’s accused of murdering her boss.

From the trailer, it looks like it’ll be similar to Ace Attorney in design, being a visual novel with investigation segments (as well as some sort of picross puzzles).

Detective games always catch my interest, but there’s a specific reason I decided to blog about this one, and that’s the team behind it.

The director worked on Swords of Ditto, which I’m not too familiar with, but the characters were designed by Hato Moa – yes, the creator of Hatoful Boyfriend! Meanwhile, the composer is Masakazu Sugimori, who did the music for the first Ace Attorney and Ghost Trick, among others.

So if nothing else, this game should have a good cast of characters (although Moa might have only done their designs) and a good soundtrack, which is enough to move this game onto my list of games to keep track of.

Murder by Numbers will be out in 2020 for the Nintendo Switch and PC.
