Hercule Poirot: The First Cases
Developed by BAFTA-winning, Glasgow-based company Blazing Griffin, First Cases boldly prioritises narrative flow and storytelling, casting aside puzzle-solving in favour of a mind-mapping system. It won’t disappoint fans of Christie’s original and much-loved work either, with all the well-loved tropes of love affairs and squabbles in an upper-class world still deliciously present in this artfully crafted game.
Players are transported back to Hercule Poirot’s early career as a detective in a game that is more mystery novel than adventure. Following Agatha Christie’s signature narrative structure of a complex web of connections needing to be unraveled, players must carefully examine scenes and coax information out of characters to uncover an untold crime story.
