Game release: “The Sexy Brutale” (PC,PS4,Xbox One)

Cavalier Game Studios and Tequila WorksThe Sexy Brutale shows that point-and-click adventure games can be quite inventive, bloody, and challenging.

I’m a big fan of time-manipulation and the rewinding mechanic in games and movies, so seeing it in this title about a masquerade party in the Sexy Brutale casino mansion where its guests are murdered and have to be saved is already a winner in my book. Playing as one of them with a bloody handprint over the mask that saves the protagonist from the evil happenings to the illustrious cast of weird characters further adds to the mystery of the host’s disappearance. Spying on the victims, learning their behavior and how to save them from certain and gruesome deaths is the main goal, though.

Everything happens in a 12 hour time loop, much like in the great Groundhog Day movie, although much bloodier and in a shorter time-frame. Saving the guests isn’t the only mechanic the game throws at you, as every life one saves unlocks a new ability, e.g. controlling time, listening to very quiet sounds etc. With so many interesting and quirky characters to rescue and strange locales to visit and a unique art style that holds it all together with unexpected death scenes to witness, there’s a lot to love here for those who like their puzzle games more imaginative and spiced with lots of dark humor.

The game has already been out for a few months in digital form on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with the PS4 retail version featuring the official soundtrack on CD and an exclusive full-color studio manual with artwork.
