Suda 51 and Grasshopper Manufacture announced a worldwide release for The Silver Case (TSC) on PC this Fall. The murder mystery point-and-click adventure will be published by Playism. It will be the first time the title will be available for the West.
The Silver Case was first game developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and was originally released in 1999. Directed by Goichi Suda (Suda 51), the game takes place in the 24 districts. It follows a string of strange and violent murders under investigation. The case becomes more bizarre when the serial killer behind similar murders is killed, but the murders continue. Has he comeback to life? Who is this copycat killer?
The game features two narrative perspectives for players to experience. The “Transmitter” scenario follows detectives as they chase the killer. The “Placebo” scenario presents the story of a freelance writer investigating the case.
The PC version will boast a series of updates; new art, graphics, and puzzles have been redone to fit the English translation as well.
Fans of mystery games and Suda 51 can look forward to The Silver Case this Fall.
