The ABC Murders is an adventure and investigation game adapted from the classic Agatha Christie novel. Assume the role of the famous private detective Hercule Poirot and, once again, you find yourself up against a mysterious serial killer who goes by the name of "ABC".
Developed by Artefacts Studio, with Microids publishing, The ABC Murders sees famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot receiving a mysterious letter, announcing a murder that is about to be committed. Not only is the serial killer confident, but they mock the police force and question Poirot’s intelligence.
As Microids adds, Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders will “lead the player around England for a complex investigation in which it will be necessary to be observant, quick-witted and level-headed.”
In the subjective view sequences, the players must position Hercule Poirot’s sight so that he can observe the important details of a crime scene, surroundings or character, and discover the clues necessary to the investigation
The players can find out more information from the various protagonists of the story by selecting from a choice of questions. Hercule Poirot’s legendary insight allows him to notice almost imperceptible witness’ changes of attitude and reactions to the questions.
From time to time, players (acting as Poirot) will need to collect an object and use it at the right place on the right character, in order to progress in the game play.
The ABC Murders features over fifteen varied puzzle games that the players will need to solve to collect a hidden object or open a secret compartment.
In these compulsory sequences, the players will need to answer questions about the murders or the suspects, using the clues they have gathered previously.
After investigating each case, the players will need to piece together the events that led to the murderer in chronological order.
