Publisher and developer SFB Games have announced their point-and-click puzzle adventure, The Mermaid’s Tongue, which is planned to launch for PC via Steam and unspecified consoles in 2024.
Part of the Detective Grimoire series, the titular protagonist is joined by Sally Spears. The series currently comprises three games: Detective Grimoire, Secret of the Swamp, and Tangle Tower.
This premise of The Mermaid’s Tongue is quoted below:
“In the pitch-black waters beyond a long-abandoned fishing town, the enigmatic captain of the world’s strangest submarine has been murdered. Some say he was an immortal time-traveller. Others say he was a vampire, cursed to stay hidden beneath the waves forever…
Found alone in a locked room, with only an ancient stone cauldron to suggest how he might have died, it’s up to Detective Grimoire and Sally to piece together what really happened. Was it a curse, released from the cauldron? One of the submarine’s eccentric crew? Or does the bizarre truth run even deeper…”
Players can anticipate investigating fully 3D-realized objects containing secrets and an original soundtrack by the Budapest Art Orchestra. A free Steam demo is also available.
