You’ve all heard of the curly moustachioed Belgian detective named Hercule Poirot, but what you may not have heard, thanks to Kalypso Media partnering with Microïds, is he is on his way to Xbox One to challenge the “A.B.C” killer!
Kalypso media announced on January 5th that they have partnered with the highly regarded French publisher Microïds to bring the boxed retail version of the adventure title “Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders” to PC and consoles in the UK, North America and Brazil.
Adapted from the classic Agatha Christie novel of the same name, “Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders” is an adventure mystery game, offering sharp-minded gamers the opportunity to play as Christie’s famous fictional detective Hercule Poirot. Players will guide Poirot as he attempts to unmask the elusive murderer known only as “A.B.C.” To solve the case, players will have to interview characters, gather evidence, and solve challenging puzzles in order to collect clues and piece together the mystery to bring the “A.B.C.” murderer to justice, all rendered stylishly in cel-shaded 3D.
Just in case you haven’t heard of Agatha Christie, she has been recognised in the Guinness World Book of Records as the most successful novelist of all time and specializes in locked room thrillers and classic whodunit mysteries. Her 66 novels, 154 short stories and 19 plays have been translated worldwide into over 50 languages. And Then There Were None, Death on the Nile and Murder on the Orient Express are just some of the many titles that have been adapted for film and TV.
