Konami has announced a new game for PC (Steam) called CRIMESIGHT. Described as a social deduction game, it’ll be a mystery simulation title focused on pvp online. A closed beta test registration is currently ongoing. The rules for applying to the CBT are on the game’s official site as only people from specific countries will be able to participate.
CRIMESIGHT takes place in London on the year 2075. As serious crimes can now be predicted by modern technology, they’ve been severely reduced. However, the system detects a crime that’ll be so catastrophic that the crime prevention system’s architects have to create AI that can investigate and prevent that specific crime.
This AI called Sherlock and the criminal mastermind, Moriarty, will thus play a game of sorts in which both of them can control different avatars. As Moriarty will have a specific target to murder, it’ll be up to Sherlock to try and prevent this from happening, uncovering his intentions.
To kill their target which may be any of the other five pawns in the game, the villain has to find a weapon and get to be alone with them. Meanwhile, the detective has to try and prevent this murder from happening while trying to pinpoint who this would-be killer is. According to the official page, multiple players may act on Sherlock’s side.
