Begin the exciting adventures of journalist-turned-detective Carla Page and solve a murder as she hunts down the culprit in a real Caribbean mystery, out now on iOS, and Android
Vilnius, Lithuania, October 20th, 2022 – Mobile games developer and publisher Nordcurrent today open the first full chapter in the Murder By Choice hidden object adventure. Armed with a branching story and packed with twists and turns, the free-to-play title puts players in the shoes of journalist-turned-detective Carla Page. As the young sleuth, players must follow a trail of clues to solve a murder on a remote tropical island where a raging storm has left them stranded.
The adventure begins when Murder By Choice protagonist, the journalist Carla Page, receives an unexpected invitation from charismatic Chilean billionaire Ruben Navarro to attend his lavish party on a private island. However, whilst Carla has planned an appointment to enjoy the celebrations, someone else has an appointment with death! A shocking murder throws everyone’s plans into the air, made even worse by the arrival of a raging tropical storm preventing the guests – and the killer – from leaving the island.
In Murder By Choice, a variety of mini-games and puzzles across the island ensure players keep their wits at all times. Players must don their detective hats and speak to the other guests in order to narrow down the list of suspects through numerous interactions and dialogue choices. Each selection the player makes as Carla will have an impact on the story as it progresses. The results of some decisions are more obvious than others, but every choice will shape how the story unfolds in this immersive whodunnit.
