4PM Games has announced its debut title for iOS touch devices, Criminel, a noir detective mystery game.
In Criminel, players must solve a series of chilling murders set among the smoky streets, hotels and dark alleys of turn of the century Paris. With a prototype camera and notepad in hand, players must use the very first forensic techniques invented to help uncover the secrets that will unravel a conspiracy, solve the case and reveal the killer.
[quote by=”Bojan Brbora, founder of 4PM”]Criminel is something very different for the App Store. We like to think we’re going where few other developers have gone before with the look and gameplay of this title, we know we have created a unique world for gamers to explore and engage with and we’re really looking forwards to getting it in their hands for the first time.[/quote]
Criminel has been designed with the help of the Wellcome Trust in tandem with their Forensics Exhibition which runs from 26th Feb – 1st June. Criminel will be available for all attendees to play at the exhibition and will be a big part of illustrating how forensic science has influenced Police work since the 1900’s.
[quote by=”Iain Dodgeon, Creative Partnerships Manager at the Wellcome Trust”]Games are able to bring a whole new perspective to a subject. The Wellcome Collection forensics exhibition brilliantly explores the gruesome history of a discipline we are most familiar with through television. Playing ‘Criminel’ lets you experience a key part of its evolution first hand.[/quote]
Criminel is due to hit the App Store this Thursday 5th March, 2015 at a cost of £1.49 ($1.99/€1.99). Check out the official Criminel website for more information.
