The Sexy Brutale
If you’ve ever sat down to watch Groundhog Day and found yourself angrily bemoaning the lack of murder and casinos, then boy-oh-boy, do we have a game that will cater to your weirdly specific tastes. This time-bending whodunnit casts you as an ageing priest trapped in a single endlessly repeating day. And as if that wasn’t enough of a hassle, you’re also stuck in a palatial gambling den as crazed croupiers begin to slaughter the assembled guests. To escape, you’ll have to conceal yourself in the gambling den’s nooks and crannies, observing the murderous staff and interacting with your environment to save the petrified patrons. It’s odd and beautifully stylised, fusing puzzle gameplay and murder-mystery intrigue.
BELOW Of course, the real mystery is why this masked chap is about to stab himself in the foot.
