With this, Akupara Games will be also given the reigns for the original The Darkside Detective and will bring the series to new platforms, championing their porting efforts.
The Darkside Detective is a serial point-and-click adventure where you are put in the shoes of Detective McQueen and his sidekick, Officer Patrick Dooley, investigating cases plaguing Twin Lakes and its colorful citizens. Point at everything in sight, click around mysterious and eerie locations, and use your wits (or borrow a friend’s) to lay the multitude of extra-dimensional cases to rest! The game has since been the recipient of many awards including The Aggie’s Award for Best Writing and Indie Dome Award for Best Narrative in 2017.
Following the massive success of its predecessor, The Darkside Detective: Season 2 will launch on PC, Mac, Linux, and Switch in 2021, following its successful Kickstarter campaign.
