Developer and publisher Mografi’s brilliant mystery-busting adventure Jenny LeClue – Detectivu launches on the Nintendo Switch today, bringing with it an array of enhancements including full voice acting, touch controls, and much more. Check out the launch trailer down below:
Jenny LeClue is a thrilling story of mystery, adventure and growing up. Set in the sleepy town of Arthurton, the game is filled with memorable, complex characters and rendered in a unique aesthetic. Jenny gets more than she bargains for when her mother is accused of murder, and begins an unexpected journey to find the truth.
– A pocket-sized heroine on a big quest for justice
Jenny is a brilliant young detective, sharp eyed, intuitive and a ruthless pursuer of the truth. She is able to scrutinize her environment during dialogue scenes, observing her subject for visible clues that would otherwise go undetected, perhaps revealing their guilt or innocence.
– A beautiful handmade world, packed with secrets
A sleek, gorgeous hand drawn world with vintage mid-20th century aesthetics and mystery squished into every corner. There’s so much to interact with, and players who poke and prod at every last thing are rewarded with insight, secrets, and humor.
– A story within a story, where choosiness matters
Jenny LeClue weaves a rich metanarrative around a rich story exploring themes of family, loss, and identity. The “author” of Jenny’s adventures, Arthur K Finklestein, acts as narrator and guide, but his presence also allows you to make choices that change the way Jenny’s story is written. These choices may even affect Finklestein’s own story.
– A Diverse Cast Of Characters & Locations
Explore Arthurton’s expansive world including the abandoned mines, the forgotten graveyard, Lake Noware, and Gumboldt’s Library. Jenny will meet an array of intriguing and suspicious characters who could help or hinder her on her quest for the truth.
– An enthralling original soundtrack created by scntfc
The award-winning Oxenfree and Old Man’s Journey composer scntfc (Andrew Rohrmann) has brought Arthurton to life with a sublime original soundtrack that lifts the mystery, magic and mirth of Jenny’s adventures at every turn.
