The Silver Case

Follow

PS4

1999 - the "24 Wards." A string of mysterious serial killings plagues the city. The detectives of the 24 Wards Heinous Crimes Unit have their eyes on one man: Kamui Uehara, legendary serial killer and assassin of a number of government officials 20 years prior in the now-famous "Silver Case." However, nobody knows who—or what—Kamui really is. Has he really returned? Who is this infamous serial killer? As the player, you will take control of the protagonist—a member of the Special Forces Unit known as “Republic”—from a first-person perspective. Inspired by classic adventure and visual novel-style games, The Silver Case offers a fresh and unique gameplay experience as it leads the player through an in-depth story containing various puzzles, and uncovering the truth piece by piece.

I see Wonder Boy is slated to release on Steam but no release date, hope they are perfecting it like bayonetta did.

I wish I had the time and money to get Wonderboy! Even though I had no idea what the heck the story was or what I was doing in the original, I still love that game so much.

Also, I just picked up The Walking Dead, Back to the Future, and The Wolf Among Us Telltale games in the Easter sale, so I am sure I'll pick up Galaxy somewhere down the line.
