Quote
Bellevue, WA May 24, 2022 -- It’s time to don your fedora and hone your hoodoo in Voodoo Detective, a story-rich 2D point-and-click adventure releasing today on PC and mobile (Steam, Epic, iOS, Android, macOS). Developed by Short Sleeve Studio, Voodoo Detective tells a noir-inspired tale that pays homage to classics like Monkey Island and King’s Quest.

The year is 1934, the place: New Ginen, an island paradise swimming in Voodoo culture, drowning in tourists. Your name is Voodoo Detective, a wise-cracking private investigator with a chip on your shoulder and a hole in your pocket. Your client is Mary Fontule, and when she walks through your door, she brings with her a mystery so profound it threatens to unravel the very fabric of existence!

“With Voodoo Detective, we invite you to escape to a whimsical world of magic, music, and mystery. It's a neo-noir with a Voodoo twist told through the time-honored tradition of pointing and clicking. Think of it like a delicious adventure hot dog where the meat is a rich story nestled in an oven fresh bun of satisfying puzzles and amusing dialogue.”

- Eric Fulton & Eric Ackerman


Voodoo Detective features include:

A thrilling saga of intrigue with a sense of humor and a full-bodied mouthfeel!
Beautiful hand-drawn backgrounds, animations, and user interface.
Xerox-era Disney inspired design for its
Prominent voice talent from such hits as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Final Fantasy, Fallout, Diablo, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Star Trek, Austin Powers, and many more.
A breathtaking live soundtrack composed by none other than Peter McConnell of Grim Fandango, Monkey Island, and Psychonauts fame.



Happy Gaming!

Playing now. Much to like (graphics, easy playability, voice acting) but first two hours are kind of a yawn. I persevere though, because I am told it really picks up! Nothing wrong with setting the stage, right?

Thank you Ana and KatieB!

To say that this game has much going for it is an understatement, especially with Peter McConnell as the composer (his music for Grim Fandango is one of my all-time favorite game soundtracks).
