Champs sur Marne, France– March 29th, 2011– Lexis Numérique, one of the biggest independent game design studios in Europe has today revealed new details for Red Johnson’s Chronicles , an upcoming downloadable title for PlayStation®Network available by the end of April. Red Johnson’s Chronicles is an investigation/adventure game set in a unique atmosphere mixing a noir style with dark humor.
A corpse has been found in Metropolis City. Finding suspects and possible motivations won’t be the hard part. But sometimes, murders are more complex than what first appears. This won’t stop Red Johnson, who is no rookie nor one of those crook private investigators who thrive in the most violent town in the country.
As Red, a private eye, you will have to investigate a crime that could have been committed by almost anyone in Metropolis City. Finding suspects won’t be that tough as the victim seems to be the most hatred man in town. The player’s job is to gather clues, find witnesses and make them cough up the goods. Lure them, threaten them, do whatever it takes but make them talk. With this information and pieces of physical evidence you will gather, nail the real murderer and put him away for good.
In Red Johnson’s Chronicles you will meet many characters, such as Theresa and Sonia. Theresa is to grace and human warmth what Adolf is to tolerance and democracy. In short, she’s the perfect wife for an absent husband. And what a piece of luck, her husband is out for quite some time… This middle aged woman is quite a character; she may well know something about this murder.
Sonia may not speak with the most eloquent manner, but those who know her well will tell you she is some kind of an artist. And art does matter in her job, the oldest in the world. This beautiful young woman could have seen something.
Red Johnson’s Chronicles is the next Lexis Numérique’s game and will be released for PlayStation®Network by the end of April.
