Weird and wonderful detective puzzler Murder by Numbers will launch in Japan and in the West this March.
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.
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.
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).
Solve pixel puzzles to find clues.
Use those clues to interrogate witnesses.
Work your way to the truth…
…and uncover the mystery of Murder by Numbers.
