Paris, November 17, 2014.
Publisher Microïds reveals the first screenshots of "The A.B.C Murders", the new video adventure
game inspired by Agatha Christie’s novel of the same name.

Following extensive graphics research, the game - which is part of Microïds adventure game catalogue - has been developed with a very distinctive visual style. While remaining faithful to Christie’s Poirot and his typical environment, "The A.B.C. Murders" brings a modern touch never before seen in a video game adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel.In addition to these exciting new visuals, players will find all the essential ingredients of a Christie mystery.

"THE A.B.C. MURDERS" IN A NUTSHELL
When playing "The A.B.C. Murders", the gamer becomes Hercule Poirot, the most famous of Agatha Christie’s detectives. He or she will
have to solve one of the most intricate cases the Belgian investigator ever faced. In a 3rd person perspective game, the player will have to collect clues from the crime scene, check alibis and confront witnesses and suspects to catch the serial killer known only as A.B.C.
The story starts with Hercule Poirot receiving typed letters signed by A.B.C. giving the date and location of the next murder. A.B.C. is working his way through the alphabet, leaving an ABC railroad guide with each victim: Alice Ascher is a tobacco shop owner killed in her shop in Andover, Betty Barnard is a flirtatious waitress killed in Bexhill and Sir Carmichael Clarke is a wealthy man killed at home in Churston. Why would A.B.C. write to Poirot instead of the Scotland Yard or any reputable newspaper? With Britain panicking, the fate of the nation is now in the player’s hands!

According to Guinness World Records, Agatha Christie (1890 – 1976) is the most successful novelist of all time. Known as the Queen of Crime, she specialized in locked room thrillers and classic whodunit mysteries. Her 66 novels, 154 short stories and 20 plays have been translated worldwide into over 50 languages. And Then There Were none, Death on the Nile and Murder on the Orient Express are just some of the many titles that have been adapted for film and TV.

The A.B.C. Murders adventure game is due to be released in 2015 on PC, Mac, PS4 , Xbox One, iOS and Android in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.


Happy Gaming!

Interesting choice of graphics style.
The graphics remind me a little of The Last Express, with the cartoon-style characters (lines around the edges) against a 3D-rendered background.
I doubt they use the same ***rotoscoping process*** though, and the backgrounds need polish.

Wow !! Is this going to be a full length game - not in episodes - and not requiring Kickstarter think

Thanks Ana. I agree Jenny100. It does look "cartoonish".

Mad, it's developed by Anuman (Microids), so I would expect it to be along the lines of what the new Dracula was like. I would not be expecting a "long full adventure".

I am pleased it will be on PS4, but I am very disappointed the graphics are so far removed from the three previous ones, which in my opinion were excellent. Way too cartoonish for me I think, but I will still buy it.

Rmt, I agree, I would also prefer that the graphics were consistent with the style of the previous games. Murder on the Orient Express was particularly pretty with all of its snow scenes. I'll probably get this one as well, so long as it's a full fledged adventure game like the others. Will wait for more info. smile
