The Relentless developers, that being their name and not presumably their work ethic, have finally announced what their secret project is; it's murder that's what.
Blue Toad Murder Files is a PSN exclusive and will be self-published by the Buzz! developer, with the game along the lines of TV's "Agatha Christie and Midsomer Murders".
There's no pricing yet but December was given the nod for a release. They're excited by the game because everyone knows "how that game works because they've seen it a thousand times on the telly. People know all about alibis and motives and all this stuff," said Relentless Software co-founder David Amor, speaking with GamesIndustry.biz.
"We don't have to explain it. And I think that's one of the things that made Buzz popular - it was based on the quiz show that people have seen on TV a thousand times too. I hope the same works for us in a murder mystery title." Better the devil you know, you know?
"Blue Toad Murder Files is a murder mystery game along the lines of Agatha Christie and Midsomer Murders and 1001 other murder mystery TV dramas like Sherlock Holmes etc - that's the style of the game," explained Amor.
"I think it's been done a great deal in TV and books and movies, but it hasn't been covered that much in videogames and it's an area we wanted to tackle. It's an interesting genre to try and realise."
Enjoy bringing out your inner-detective with some murder mystery? On the telly of course...
