Giiku Games announced the Arrowiz-developed adventure mystery Hermitage: Strange Case Files, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam this summer.
“Hermitage: Strange Case Files is what Chinese developer Arrowiz does best: an engaging mystery wrapped up in a multi-layered and immersive story where every line of dialogue is an important cog in the wheel that is the game’s overarching narrative,” says Rinalda Faraian, Product Manager at Giiku Games. “It’s important then that we do the script justice, and we can’t wait to bring this new localized version to gamers on console and PC this summer.”
Hermitage: Strange Case Files is a horror mystery set in a bookstore named Hermitage. The bookstore itself attracts unusual customers who are dealing with paranormal issues. Players take on the role of the bookshop owner, who is a former anthropology professor never seen outside of the bookstore. Evidently, there’s a handful of horrific events taking place, and the owner enlists the help of a hacker, detective, and legal consultant to solve the mystery of the store.
During gameplay, players will interview characters and choose their approach to taking on the case from the intel they’ve gathered. Information can be found during dialog, TV news, web forums, phone messages, and emails. Once enough is collected, players will put their assumptions to the test, which can change the story completely.
