The Sexy Brutale takes one part puzzle game and one part murder mystery and throws it in a blender with the movie Groundhog Day. You play a priest named Lafcadio Boone who is attending a masquerade ball at the casino mansion, The Sexy Brutale. As if losing your wallet at this casino is not bad enough, many of the guests are being murdered. The old priest must sneak and spy on the guests and employees to see why people are dying and to prevent it.
In order to do that, he is reliving this day again and again, so he will be able to view different deaths when they happen. There is a whole mansion to explore with unique puzzles and characters in each area. If you manage to save one of the nine victims, their mask will provide some different powers that will help you in your quest.
The Sexy Brutale’s Groundhog Day concept is interesting, and it should provide the player with some opportunity for clever solutions. We are not sure Boone will end up with Andie MacDowell at the end of his experiences, but, in a day that never ends, we guess anything is possible. The game launches on April 11th, and we look forward to finding out together.
