After much speculation, Spooky Doorway are finally bringing McQueen and Dooley’s 6 original cases to the Nintendo Switch on February 7th.
Praised for its soundtrack by Ben Prunty and its referential sense of humour, The Darkside Detective includes six bite-sized cases, each spookier than the last – making it perfect for the Switch.
“We’re really excited to bring The Darkside Detective to the Switch. To us, it’s a natural fit. We’ve designed the game to be played in short sessions and to us, the bus to work seems like a perfect place for some time with McQueen and Dooley”, said writer Dave McCabe.
- Classic point and click adventure gameplay
- Retro pixel art with a modern twist
- OST by Ben Prunty (FTL, Into the Breach)
- 6 unique cases to solve, full of 90s pop culture references
- Includes one free curse-removal, up to and including mid-level witch hexes
About The Darkside Detective
Detective Francis McQueen is the lead investigator of the criminally underfunded Darkside Division. When evil darkens the doorsteps of Twin Lakes City – hell, even when it just loiters around shop fronts or hangs out in shady alleyways – he’s there, ready to investigate the cases that nobody else will. After an original release on PC, Mac, Linux and Ouija boards in 2017, this classic point-and-click adventure game is landing on Nintendo Switch this 7th February.
About Spooky Doorway
Darkside Detective began at the Galway Game Jam in November 2014, as Paul Conway & Christopher Colston made a demo in under 8 hours. After sharing the short prototype online, it proved to be quite popular, convincing the team that there was life in continuing the game. Dave & Tracey McCabe joined the team as writer and programmer respectively while travelling the world, with Ben Prunty coming onboard as a composer. Spooky Doorway was born.
