I'll be opting to buy the retail version - if it doesn't have to be played via Steam.

Does anyone know that yet ??

The characters are cartoonish, but the decor and environment look great. Maybe this is going to be better than I thought, especially if the voices are excellent. I really look forward to it. I will need to find out if it is out on PS4 as well on 6 Feb, and if the PC or Mac versions are of a better resolution than the PS4.

I agree. I wish they had stayed in the style of Murder on the Orient Express and Evil Under The Sun. However, I'm glad this will be a full adventure game and not just a hidden object game.

I also wish the style were more in line with the previous games. I thought the realistic look fit the series better. Good point about it being an actual adventure game as opposed to a hidden object game, of course. smile

I'm not sure I'm going to get it yet, but there's a definite possibility, so I'm watching the news, previews and later, the reviews. I'm also hoping GOG gets it as well. smile

I was disappointed to see the screen shots and find that the graphics were cartoons. So I probably won't buy it.
However the one cartoonish game that I did rate very highly, and thoroughly enjoyed, was Murder in the Abbey. For some strange reason, the style seemed to suit it.

Wow !! Well if I can't get a "Non-Steam" disk version I will definitely be buying from GOG. Thanks for that news, dianne and Gnabgib bravo

I'm not too bothered about the change to cartoon style graphics, myself, as long as the story remains good grin

I will buy this game and most likely enjoy it but I wish they had stuck with the old style graphics of prior games.

I did like The Raven and that game had a similar look to this but it was The Raven, not Agatha Christie.
