It does sound pretty ambitious, and we've seen devs' wings melt all too often when they fly towards the sun, so I wouldn't be surprised if the ultimate execution isn't parsed way down or if it winds up being a buggy-if-well intended mess.I tried the demo a while ago. Was fun, but I'm not fully sold on the procedural generation. My worry is this game's bag of tricks won't be large enough to generate enough interesting situations to stop things from becoming repetitive after the first playthrough.
It probably will. The last two crimes were straightforward. Toy car with unknown fingerprints next to poisoned victim? Could it have been left there as a symbol by the killer? Let's sneak in that general store to check their records. Nope they didn't sell any of their toy cars recently. But apparently they did sell poison and a syringe to a certain person yesterday... Hello, can I check your fingerprints please, thank you, solved.That all sounds really cool the first couple of time, but I fear it'll get really repetitive after a few crime solved.
