Developed by the studio Blazing Griffin, in collaboration with Agatha Christie Limited, Agatha Christie - Hercule Poirot: The First Cases is a detective and adventure game starring a young Hercule Poirot before he became the legendary detective we all know and love!

Synopsis:

In his early years as a detective, a young Hercule Poirot is invited to a reception by the influential Van den Bosch family, for the announcement of their daughter’s engagement. But tensions among the guests run high as a snowstorm descends on the town, trapping everyone inside the manor. The happy event is soon marred by the murder of one of the guests! Poirot being in the right place at the right time immediately begins to investigate. What buried secrets and deadly rivalries will he uncover?

Key features:

(Re)discover the legendary detective in an untold crime story, by playing as Hercule Poirot at the beginning of his detective career, when he still has everything to prove.
Put your little grey cells to the test by using your deduction skills to connect clues together in your mindmap. The mindmap will allow you to visualise and link the elements of the case in order to draw your own conclusions… and shed light on the culprit in a surprising denouement!
Solve a complex murder case and find out what hides behind the deceptive appearances of the Van den Bosch family.
Question all the suspects and glean crucial information from them without their knowing. Pick up on all suspicious behaviour as you uncover the dark secrets and rivalries of the Belgian upper class.
Explore a luxurious house full of buried mysteries. Uncovering the murderer won’t be the only puzzle you’ll have to solve…


Happy Gaming!

Thanks Donald! Already saw it. There are some discounts available if you also buy Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders OR if you already own that game, an even bigger discount.

Only into the game for maybe 40 minutes, but it's different. I recommend watching a play-through video to see if it's for you before you spend $25. Don't take this as a negative review...but the game, at least the prologue, is less about finding clues and talking to people than it is about deducting on a separate screen. I do hear it steps up in later chapters.

It is point and click, with caveats. You can use the keyboard to move also, and you use a couple of letters to bring up the deduction screen and a profile screen.
