Scottish studio Blazing Griffin and French publisher Microids announced Agatha Christie – Hercule Poirot The London Case, a new game about the adventures of the great detective Hercule Poirot.
In fact, the series of Agatha Christie games, in which such famous characters of the British writer as Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple act, have existed since 2005 (Sherlock Holmes series from Frogwares since 2002) and already has 10 game detectives.
Blazing Griffin Studios developed the last of these games, Agatha Christie: Hercule Poirot – The First Cases (2021), for which they received BAFTA Scotland’s Best Game Award 2022. Agatha Christie – Hercule Poirot The London Case is a sequel to this project and is not based on any specific Agatha Christie novel.
Poirot’s assistant and friend Captain Arthur Hastings will finally appear in the new game. In addition, the authors promise interesting detective puzzles, a more detailed game world and full voice acting.
It is interesting that another game based on the works of Agatha Christie will be released this year, another version of Agatha Christie – Murder on the Orient Express by Microids Studio Lyon / Microids.
